The choice of the name, Ferry McFerryface, follows on the heels of Boaty McBoatface and Trainy McTrainface after the PR disaster of Scottish authorities rejecting the popular public naming competition winner. Ferry McFerryface is the 3rd response to that rejection of the public will, after being invited to enter a name. The controversy is undiminished. Photo by AussieActive on Unsplash


Controversy is a state of prolonged public displacee or debate, usually concerning a matter of conflicting opinion or point of view.

The word was coined from the Latin controversia, as a composite of controversus – “turned in an opposite direction,” from contra – “against” – and vertere – to turn, or versus , hence, “to turn against.”
