The Nereids were sea nymphs in Greek mythology. If you see a picture of Poseidon consorting with a bevy of nubile young ladies, those are Nereids. There's also a family of sea worms called Nereids. So "Nereid" is a pretty common name for a boat.

Captain Nat Herreshoff designed, and Herreshoff Manufacturing built, a steam yacht named Nereid in the 1880s.
