The boat naming tradition dates back hundreds of years. In the olden days, sea vessels were named after gods, to ensure their protection from bad luck. And even nowadays, when you pick a name for a new ship, the naming ceremony is exact and complex, so that no unfortunate event would befall the seafarer on its maiden trip. If sailing is a more of a recreational activity for you, then ship names might be a bit looser with the rites. Anyways, we highly doubt that Boaty McBoatface is a proper name in asking the gods for good luck.
