The top name for this year epitomises elegance and indeed grace at sea, but Grace did not make the list last year.
Serenity, at number 6 this year, was the most popular name in 2017. Who doesn’t love a pun? Seas the Day lost one place and went down from number two to three, but it’s still a much loved moniker. Therapy is a new entry and didn’t make the list in 2017 or 2016, as didn’t Second Wind, Perseverance, Rum Runner or Knot on Call.
Pure Vida also didn’t make the list in the last two years, but with the meaning of ‘Pure Life’, that’s certainly a name chosen by those who want to enjoy life to the full.
