The Republican Herald - - NEWS -

SYD­NEY (AP) — A Syd­ney Har­bor ferry will be chris­tened Ferry McFer­ry­face — the sec­ond fa­vorite choice af­ter the now fa­mous jokey Mc-moniker, Boaty McBoat­face.

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 Boaty McBoat­face be­came the name of one of its subs.
