WHAT’S IN the name

Canal Boat - - Me & My Boats -

JOHN & JOSIE KELLY tell us: “Prior to buy­ing our boat we had a share in an­other boat, which was called Eos (god­dess of the dawn in Greek mythol­ogy). Eos was the mother of the four winds one of which is No­tos (the south­ern wind).

“Al­though we now live in the Midlands we both orig­i­nally come from the south. So No­tos a ‘de­scen­dant’ of Eos and the south­ern wind was an ob­vi­ous choice. We quickly spot­ted a third rea­son for nam­ing our new boat No­tos. Prior to mov­ing to the Midlands we lived in Southamp­ton, of­ten short­ened to So­ton, which is No­tos in re­verse.”
