Hello,
According to Miramar, the longest name in 2020  was from a Mexican naval vessel :
CAPITAN DE FRAGATA PEDRO SAINZ DE BARANDA BORREYRO

I can't find any record of such a ship in places such as this f'rinstance https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ships_of_the_Mexican_Navy
What often happens is that while that is the name of the person for whom the ship was named the actual name of the ship will be a shortened version - in this case 'Sainz de Baranda' - Borreyro being his mother's maiden name. Think of ships such as HMS Nelson or HMS Anson

The longest historical name I can think of was 'Flight Lieutenant Vassiliades RAF' a greek wartime standard , and the shortest was 'Ra'.

It's not an oceangoing vessel, but one of the longest current names I've seen is on a harbor dinner boat operating in the San Francisco Bay area:

CABERNET SAUVIGNON COMMODORE

In fact, the name is painted in large enough letters that it takes up nearly a quarter of the vessel's length...
