How do ships get their names?

There are many factors that go into naming a ship. Ships can be named after a person, place, or thing. They can also be named for the company that owns it. There is no set way to name a ship; however, there are some guidelines that help make the process easier and more organized.

For example, some people will name their ship after the country they live in or where their ancestors came from. Others will name their ships after important people in history or places of significance in history. Still others will name their ships after themselves and their family members, while others might choose to use the company's initials as the ship's name.
