"Given Boaty was already taken by another vessel, we've gone with the next most popular name nominated by Sydneysiders", Mr Constance says.

The results are in and Australians have chosen Ferry McFerryface as the official name for one of the iconic Sydney Harbour ferryboats, according to the New South Wales Public Transport Facebook page.

That was the name Australia's new ferry would have also borne, based on vote totals alone.

They certainly weren't expecting that they would have to name the new vessel something ludicrous like Ferry McFerryface.

Boaty was the notable title Brits voted to call a United Kingdom research vessel past year, so Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said they went for Ferry McFerryface instead.

Three other ferries have been named after notable Australian doctors Victor Chang, Fred Hollows and Catherine Hamlin.

But Boaty lived on in the form of a yellow submarine on the Attenborough research ship - mainly because people were extremely disappointed with the decision.

The new ferry will be named Fery McFerryface, which was actually the second most voted for.

Here's to hoping Ferry McFerryface lives a longer life along the waters of Sydney Harbour.
