The tradition of boat naming dates back hundreds of years. Sea vessels were formerly named after gods to ensure their protection from bad luck. Even today, when naming a new ship, the naming ceremony is precise and complex so that no unfortunate event befalls the seafarer on its maiden voyage. If sailing is more recreational activity for you, ship names may be less constrained by the rites. Anyway, we highly doubt that Boaty McBoatface is a proper name for requesting good luck from the gods, though we must admit that it is a rather amusing name.
