Ship Naming, Round 2

Thank you to everyone who voted in round 1.

I still can't decide so I need a round 2! :)

I've taken the top results from round 1 and added a few new options.

One concern I have---one of my word nerd friends pointed out that a couple of my favorite name options weren't actually words in the early 1700s. Since this is a historical novel, shouldn't I try to be generally historically accurate? Should I disqualify words that didn't exist in the 1700s? Does it matter? Most readers probably don't have an etymology book open as they read. Will people care?
