Name Notes: Named according to the types of ship theme of the area. A brig is a vessel with two masts at least one of which is square rigged. In modern parlance, a brig is square rigged on both masts, and this is the standard name for such a vessel.

Previously, "brig" has been used as an abbreviation of "brigantine", which in modern parlance is the standard name for a principally fore-and-aft two-masted rig with a square rigged foremast but which also has other historical meanings.
