What’s In A Name?

It’s always taken me by how we personalize objects by naming them, especially those that mean something to us, like a computer, a car, a tool, even the home we live in. If it exists, we can name it. This fact was especially brought to my attention as I looked out into Stonington Harbor in Maine, and saw all the wonderful lobster boats as the sun was setting. What a diversity of names! The boats seemed to take on the quality of the name, whatever it was, and got me thinking about the crews who worked on them. What would you name a lobster boat, or would you, if you had one?
