    The names of Trinity's punts

    Trinity College also hires punts for its students and for visitors.
    The names of Trinity's punts are quite interesting.
    (the names of the punts: 'French Hen', 'Musketeer', 'Wise man', 'Hat trick', 'Harry Lime', 'Menage'...)
    Just as the word 'Trinity' is associated with the number three, so are the names of its punts.

    I can't understand what similar is between the names of the punts and the number three?
    Thanks for correcting me.

    Hat trick - Hat-trick - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Musketeer - три мушкетёра
    Налево пойдёшь - коня потеряешь, направо пойдёшь - сам голову сложишь.
    Прямой путь не предлагать!
