The last of Sydney's new inner-harbour ferries will be christened Ferry McFerryface - for the kids.

More than 15,000 suggestions were made for the competition to name the six new inner-harbour ferries.

"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 harbour," Transport Minister Andrew Constance said. "This one is for the kids."

Ferry McFerryface isn't original. It follows a public vote in the UK to name a new polar research ship Boaty McBoatface.

But the Natural Environment Research Council decided not to use the name, instead choosing instead "Sir David Attenborough".
