Today we come to the happy task of sending on her way the stateliest ship now in being. It has been the nation’s will that she should be completed, and today we can send her forth no longer a number on the books, but a ship with a name in the world, alive with beauty, energy and strength! May her life among great waters spread friendship among the nations!

THE LEGEND BEHIND THE NAME
Legend has it that the board of directors at Cunard had decided to name the ship the Queen Victoria, which would have been in keeping with the tradition of Cunard ships having the ia suffix (Mauretania, Aquitania and Berengeria). As per protocol, legend states that the Cunard directors went to ask King George his blessing of the ships proposed name saying, We have decided to name our new ship after Englands greatest Queen, meaning Queen Victoria, the Kings Grandmother. Upon which the King is reported to have stated, My wife (Queen Mary) will be delighted that you are naming the ship after her.
