Question about boat name prefixes? Are some names restricted? Belle of? USS?

Are certain boat names restricted?

Are certain prefixes restricted?

RMS? is this limited to postal boats

USS? Is this only for war fleet

HMS? Is this restricted

HMY? I heard this one was only for royal boats

Belle/Beau of: is this a title given to the best vessel out of a certain home port? Is this typically for river liners that run regular “line voyages” with a “running mate” that runs on an opposite schedule?

Is this designation often granted by a Mayor or Harbormaster

Is “Spirit of” and “Star of” usually reserved for the fastest vessel based out of a given port that runs a line voyage?

Are there restricted names for boats? How do boat Prefixes  work?
