Scientists in the UK asked the public to vote on a name for their $290 million polar research ship. Because people are awful (or awesome, depending on your point of view) the name at the top of the list is none other than "RRS Boaty McBoatface".

Ah, such a fitting name for such a grand ship. You can watch this video for details on the construction and groundbreaking advancements of the soon to be RRS Boaty McBoatface:



Honestly, they'll probably pick one of the more serious suggestions as this naming poll is in no way binding.  However, at this point they'll probably be facing some backlash if they don't.

The people REALLY want Boaty Mc Boatface. 

85,000 people changed their name last year in the UK. It's surprisingly easy to change your name there, it costs £33 for an adult and you can use any name that has a first and last name, isn't vulgar or impossible to pronounce and doesn't have a made up title or any numbers or symbols. That leaves a lot to work with which is why these wonderful names are now legally acceptable, real names of real people.
