Sydneysiders were encouraged to vote on names for the new ferries through the Name Your Ferry website and using the #yourferry hashtag.

Sydney has brought a dead joke back to life in order to name a new ferry "Ferry McFerryface".

The ferry is one of a new fleet to be put to use in Sydney, and joins a trend of copycats since last year's United Kingdom vote - including a Swedish train named Trainy McTrainface and a racehorse, also from Sydney, called Horsey McHorseface.

The name is a variation on a joke that began with a similar competition for a British research vessel previous year.

But "this one is for the kids" Mr Constance reiterated on Monday.

Ferry McFerryface joins three other ferries that have already been named by the public - Victor Chang (Australian heart surgeon), Fred Hollows (ophthalmologist) and Catherine Hamlin (obstetrician).

Police are now searching for him and are asking witnesses to call the Atlanta Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS. The Atlanta Police Department homicide squad is working the case and authorities are continuing the investigation.

"Boaty McBoatFace" tallied the most votes, but NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance didn't want to copy the UK's decision during a recent public poll.

The original Boaty McBoatface vote ended with the vessel being named RSS Sir David Attenborough, with a smaller submersible taking the title.

The renaming of the ferry follows a public vote in the United Kingdom to name a new polar research ship Boaty McBoatface.

The Boaty McBoatface legacy has spread worldwide, with an express train in Sweden named Trainy McTrainface earlier this year and a team at Sydney's Warwick Farm racecourse naming their horse Horsey McHorseface last year.

Ferry McFerryface is part of Sydney's new, modern ferry fleet that will carry 400 passengers, have Wi-Fi, and advanced facilities for the disabled.
