It might not be as highly anticipated as the Social Security Administration’s release of the top 10 baby names around the country, but perhaps that depends on whether you’re having babies or buying boats.

BoatUS recently released its 24th annual Top Ten Boat Names List.

“We’ve had indicators that a boater who names their boat Second Wind may have rebounded from a misfortune such as divorce, health or other major issue, while someone who names their boat Island Girl or Island Time may enjoy a more carefree spirit and need an escape from everyday life,” BoatUS Boat Graphics’ Greg Edge said in a statement. “And you can guess that boats with names like Happy Hours may be the most popular boats on Friday night at the marina or Saturday afternoon raft-up — their more outgoing owners celebrating with family and friends.”

The BoatUS list of Top Ten Boat Names is:

1. Serenity

2. Second Wind

3. Island Girl

4. Freedom

5. Pura-Vida

6. Andiamo

7. Island Time

8. Irish Wake

9. Happy Hours

10. Seas the Day

BoatUS has more than two decades of top 10 boat name lists and more than 9,000 names in its online Boat Name Directory, a checklist to help pick a name, christening ceremony information and an online design tool to make your own boat name.
