Does thou have a name? Or what is thou called?

Ships have names. People don’t necessarily have names. They are called something. As in what is thy daughter called?

At least that’s how they still say it in England. See the video below starting at 1:37 mark. The news host says, “What’s your daughter called?”

The powers that be want to pretend they are dealing with the captain (master/mister) of a ship with a name? The question, “What’s your name?” actually is “What’s the name of your ship?”
