Only those who have absolutely no relation or knowledge in ships could come up with names like that.

My favourite strange ship name is:

"Fliegerkosmonaut der DDR Sigmund Jähn". What a long name! For sure difficult to pronounce for any non-German speaker. For sure what a job to paint that long name on the hull.

A not so special name, but one that makes me smile is:

"Happy Fellow".

Not sure, whether the ships crew consist of happy fellows only Smiley

"Graig David"..... (https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_David) coincidence, perhaps, but still

"Happy Fellow".
"Happy Girl" makes me smile (IMO 8800298).
Maybe the crews met in some port or other ,so there is the "Happy Bride" (IMO 9181900).

My last ship was named SPRING DELIGHT & her identical sister was SPRING DESIRE. We traded regularly to Guayaquil & a Rio Guayas pilot asked me what the names meant. I told him that one was hopeful for something nice to happen while the other, mine, got lucky!

I saw an old US naval tug years ago called STRUTTIN 'B which turned out to be an abbreviated name...

See photo detail for full name

KRK from former Jugolinija. If for no other reason then because it is such a tongue breaker for many people  Grin

One of my favourite names : "Baltimar Comdiflate" IMO 8812954
Last in a series of "Mini Multipurpose vessels" build in Shanghai between 1987-1992
It summarised the experience of the building supervisors on the shipyards
Too complicate , too difficult and finally too late  Smiley
The yard had a bit of explaining to do to their workers  Grin
