HMS Gay Swordsman was a good one...To be fair RRS Boaty McBoatface is certainly better than some of the ridiculous names chosen for warships in the past. They tend to reveal a great deal about how out of touch some naming committees have been previously. My guess is some officious individual will choose a name 'more befitting' which will totally invalidate the unofficial poll. That said, the article is in the Mail, so it carries the caveat that the truth must not get in the way of a story.
Some other names in the article were were RRS Pingu and RRS Usain Boat.
