Second choice for name wins: Ferry Mcferryface
A new Sydney Harbor ferry will be christened Ferry Mcferryface — Sydney’s second-favorite choice after the now famous jokey Mc-moniker, Boaty Mcboatface, which is already the name of another vessel.
New South Wales state government officials overruled the most popular name for the ferry after the trendsetter was first snubbed last year as a name for a British polar survey vessel.
That ship was christened Sir David Attenborough in honor of the naturalist and broadcaster, and Boaty Mcboatface became the name of one of its remotely operated submarines.
Ferry Mcferryface joins the ranks of Trainy Mctrainface, a Swedish express train, and Horsey Mchorseface, a
Sydney racehorse, after a trend started by a suggestion from a former BBC radio host.
