The Boat Owners Association of the U.S. released its list of the Top Ten Boat Names for 2017, a tradition that dates back 25 years. The list is created by compiling requests for boat names received by the BoatUS graphics service.

Here are the 2017 Top 10 Boat Names and a note about their meanings:

4. Irish Wake: Mourning and merrymaking after the death of a family member or friend

5. Freedom: Patriotic name that first appeared on the Top 10 Names list in 2004
