A meme has been growing in popularity ever since it recently made headlines after Sweden held a contest to settle the public naming of a train.

The train was named "Trainy McTrainface" in a homage to the original meme, a research vessel funded by the British government which the public wanted to be named "Boaty McBoatface" but was ultimately overridden and named after Planet Earth's director Sir David Attenborough.

Now, the last of Sydney's new inner-harbor ferries will be named "Ferry McFerryface" in a new iteration of the meme started last year by the boat naming contest. A total of over 15,000 suggestions were received for the competition to name the six new ferries in Sydney, Australia. Transport Minister Andrew Constance said, "The most popular names by far in the Name Your Ferry competition were Victor Chang, Fred Hollows, and Catherine Hamlin, which are already ferrying passengers across the harbor.

Transport Minister Andrew Constance also added, "This one is for the kids."
