It is a little sailing dingy (14 feet long).

I am open to any name but would love one that is funny and shows serious geek creds.

Some names so far:

Panta Rhei
Don't Panic
The Heart of Gold
SPAM
Lookfar
The Kraken
Dead Parrot
Neuromancer

What do you suggest?

How about "Discount Doublecheck"?

(I actually kind of like Dead Parrot. If you wanted something a bit more subtle, you could call it Norwegian Blue or Fjord Piner.)

My suggestion comes from one of my favorite Flintstone episodes.

Fred and Barney bought a boat. Barney wanted to name it "Lady of the Sea". Fred wanted to call it "Nautilus". They compromised:

Nau-Sea

Would help if it were a steam yacht, though.

I was going to suggest Brobdinghynag, but really Heart of Gold is top notch.

Strangely enough, no one has yet suggested the normal, but in this thread also the most obvious, Case Blue.

I rest my blue case.
