Best Answer

This is the part of the church where the people sit. It is called the 'nave' as the roof looks a little like an upturned boat - the latin for 'boat' being 'navis' from where we get the word 'navigate' and 'navy'.
The NAVE is the main part of the interior of a church and people sit there. The roof looks like a boat turned upside down, and in latin boat is 'navis'!
