Minnesota - Land of 10,000 Naming Experts

Minnesota PlateWe Minnesotans, in case you haven't noticed, inherently like to name things.

Most people agonize over naming their newborn, or even their dog, cat, or other pet. We do that in Minnesota, as well as spend a great deal of time and energy naming our boats.

AvantiDid you know that Minnesota has the highest per capita boat registration in the country? You might say living in the land of 10,000 lakes, that makes sense. But it's really 15,291 lakes of 10 acres or larger!

We combine our love for the outdoors and our love for naming with some of the following :

  • Blood, Sweat and Beer
  • Boatrupt
  • Boatweiser
  • Fin-Addict
  • Sea-Questered (a lawyer's boat)
  • Well Adjusted (a chiropracter's boat)

Perhaps you've also heard of the term Minnesota Nice. I'm sure we Minnesotans would be more than happy to help you name your boat - or pet, or child, or whatever.
