Irish Boat Names: 69 Highly Fitting Names (Clever + Funny)

Ireland is home to many global athletes, actors, and personalities. The likes of Liam Neeson, Conor McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, and Becky Lynch are just a few of the many household names that show the diversity, talent, and entertainment prowess the people of Ireland can offer all around the globe. This is why Irish boat names are a common sight to see in some boating communities.

In this guide, we’ll take a quick look at the best Irish boat names for your prized possession, as well as a few tips to consider before finally choosing that one name that will represent you and your boat’s identity.

Our Best Suggestions

Viking’s Creed

For any gamers (or fans of games), “Viking’s Creed” is not only a callback to the rich Viking heritage the people of Ireland are associated with, but it is also a play on Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, the latest Assassin’s Creed video game that is based on Viking lore.

We find this boat name to be great for ships with a sharp or edgy design, as it makes the boat have a more intense or intimidating personality.

Boats and Whiskey

Irish are known for their wonderful taste and craftsmanship when it comes to alcoholic beverages, most especially whiskey. So why not pair two of the most fun and enjoyable things in the world into one name?

“Boats and Whiskey” is a bit of a cheeky name, but you can definitely make it work for most small-sized boats.

Irish Luck

A shorter version for “Luck o’ the Irish” is what this boat name actually is. This embodies the good fortunes and wealth associated with Ireland and their culture and may even help you out in ensuring that your boat travels the seas for several years to come.

We imagine this boat name to be ideal for medium-sized boats, but it can be applied to boats of other shapes and sizes as well.

Tips and Advice for Choosing Irish Boat Names

Irish boat names give a certain personality to your boat, which is not something that can be said for a few of the other more neutral boat names. However, the same rules and principles still apply. Here are a few things to consider before finalizing your Irish-themed boat name:

  • Keep it short and limit the word count to two (or three).
  • Stay away from offensive or derogatory remarks. You are free to choose your own boat name but once you have one that is demeaning, rude or has a negative connotation, then that is when you have to think twice.
  • There are so many possible names you could think of yourself. If you are not a fan of any of our suggestions, feel free to think of something that is unique to you and your experiences.

IN Summary

Most importantly, choosing a boat name should be fun. If you're open to other themes we have plenty more ideas. Try boat names for veterans, dog lover inspired boat names, American themed Patrioric boat names and even romantic boat names for couples for some more examples.
