    Re: The new Hurtigruten Coastal Steamer set to enter service.

    If you search on facebook now, there is a group that you might like (so far, there are two people liking the group), checking the opinions on the name "Los Anders Holte for ny hurtigrute".

    Basically, it tries to explore the opinions if the ship possibly could be named to honor the first pilot of Hurtigruten, the man which had the notes and knowledge of the coast to start the coastal service together with Captain Richard With.

        I think this would be a good composition of names to a new modern fleet:

        Los Anders Holthe
        Kronprins Haakon (or even Kong Haakon within time, hopefully not any time soon).
        Dronning Sonja (we did have "Dronning Maud" a long time ago) -> "dronning" meaning Queen.
        Vestkapp
        Varanger
        Trondheimsfjord
        Gjøa
        Leiv Eriksson

        ...to keep the thread alive, any other additional suggestions?
        Reviving an old thread, but wow, Varanger!! I fell completely for the name as soon as I read it. Is it just me?
        "Varanger is arriving today". Sounds good Have you suggested it to Hurtigruten? Do that before I do it

          Reviving some old names would be good to I think. "Harald Jarl","Rangvald Jarl","Håkon Jarl","Erling Jarl" and "Sigurd Jarl" would have been fun to se on new ships.
          "Narvik" could work to. I don't think "Kong Olav" would work, but "Kronprins Håkon" could work.
          Personally, I would have named a Hurtigruten(Wich is one part of what used to be Troms Fylkes Dampskipsselskap) or a Torghatten Nord(Wich is the other part of what used to be TFDS)ship "William Pettersen". If you know a bit about TFDS, you'll probably figure out why.

            Great seeing this thread being "kicked" back into life again!

            I thought it was a good idea to merge two threads, this one and the former "The new Hurtigruten Coastal Steamer set to enter service"-thread.

            Basically, these two threads are talking about the same things so I merged them.

            Varanger is a great name I agree, but so is many others and I have a hard time finding which one I like the most.

                Great one.... I see what you mean!

                Wonder how it would look like in "real"?

                  In the past we had several ships named RICHARD WITH, why don't have one called AUGUST KRIEGSMANN GRAN?

                    Well... Hurtigruten has a lot of German tourists, and will not "Kriegsmann" sound strange to them? - meaning "man of war" in German... and of course it's just a long name. "I travelled aboard the Lofoten" or "aboard the Nordlys" sounds somewhat better than "aboard the August Kriegsmann Gran" - what? what ship did you travel on? How was that name again? - Although it seems it would be a historically fitting name.

                      Maybe AUGUST K. GRAN or AUGUST GRAN will be long enough

                          No, no, shipmates, it must be Kong Olav II.

                            The name "Kong Olav II" can lead to misunderstandings
                            Olav II Haraldsson (995 – 1030), later known as St. Olav, was King of Norway from 1015 to 1028.

                                Will there be a next HRG ship? Let's hope so. But when? What plans do exist? Are there drawings to be seen? What is the HRG politics for new ship/ships?
