The naming of Samsø’s present ferries is a bit complicated. The municipality of Samsø introduced their new building in 2014 with the obvious name SAMSØ, promotion the local community, but later renamed it after the second oldest child of Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, Princess Isabella, born 2007. Danske Færger quickly snapped the name to their ferry on the east-route, formerly named KANHAVE after an old man-made channel from the Viking age on the island.
