Thanks for choosing this ship name generator! A significant part of people does not even know that there is a tradition to name ships, as well as boats, but that is what humanity has done for thousands of years. Now, when the birth of this tradition is in a distant past, it is hard to tell how it all started: why men decided to give a name for a floating piece of wood? Some scientists think that this was done out of religious beliefs: people started naming their ships after female deities, hoping that this way the supernatural beings will guard and guide them in the seas. However, some other scholars have different explanations and claim that the actual reason why in those times ships were typically given female names is different. According to them, this was done because in the ancient forms of language the noun “ship” had a feminine form.
It is not that important how this tradition came into existence. What matters is that this tradition thrives to this day.
