It is the traditional way to honor a special person: You name something after them.
Babies are named for beloved family members or friends. Some restaurants and pubs honor their most favored customers by naming a particular dish or drink after them. Others people have bridges or roads named in their honor.
Freedom Boat Club of Jacksonville and St. Augustine has come up with its own variation.
“We are naming a boat after one of our members,” said franchise owner Lisa Almeida. “He is very deserving of the distinction.”
