These hilariously strange ship names are making waves.
The internet is going wild over the weird and funny names of boats stuck in the Suez Canal jam — including vessels such as Nautical Deborah, Thor Courage, and just plain Chris.
“I think I’ve found the best ship name ever,” one observer tweeted with a screen grab of Nautical Deborah’s data point marker in the clogged waterway.
“I assume it’s like racehorses and her parents had those words in their names?” another user quipped.
The monikers of other stranded ships make Boaty Mcboatface sound elegant — including Energy Centurion, Shakedog, and Bulk Venus, others tweeted.
Dozens of ships became stuck in the maritime traffic jam earlier this week when the 1,300-foot-long Ever Given became wedged diagonally in the canal in a northern section of the Red Sea near Egypt.
The accident prompted some observers to take a deep dive into ship name research in the area, using apps and websites that show vessels registered through a GPS system.
“HELP I CAN’T STOP LOOKING UP SHIP NAMES,” another user quipped.
The mix of vessels stuck near the canal includes at 41 bulk carriers, dozens of tankers — and at least one Russian warship.
Less distinguished gems of the sea also include the Friendship Express, Svitzer Bootle and Lunchbox, according to an international database of ship names.
