All the way at the bottom of this page, are some of the ship names used in Armada II:

I picked Monitor due to some fan-fic I had worked on a few years back, and a WIP book. Monitor just sort of resonated with the character. Anyway, plenty to choose from that would fit well for a Defiant :)

Well, being an amateur historian, I enjoy using historical names for swards / weaponry. Since the Defiant is for all purposes a war ship, I find these to be the most fitting. Iíd post mine, but I get annoyed when I see 3 Ė 4 D-Rís running a similar name during an instance.

My first D-R name was Gladius followed by second - Maniple. I started seeing both names a lot so I switched to a new name, which is a little more esoteric.

I recommend doing some research if you donít like seeing a bunch of ships named the same as yours. However, that doesnít stop anyone from seeing you fly by and liking your name; then taking it for their own.

Latin names can be useful, I like to use Latin names for my ships - Medicus - Healer, Ferrum - Sword, Legati - Legacy and others.

Some names that come to mind with about the same feel as Defiant.
  • USS Vengeance
  • USS Audacious
  • USS Daring
  • USS Resolve
I would say Reliant, but I stay away from well know Star Trek ship names. Swords names are good and the names of famous war battles can sometimes work. If all else fails I start looking up the names of gods or mythological characters. There is a good variety of war god names from various cultures.

All of my escorts are named after bladed weapons. Although I was thinking about and all cannon Defiant-R build and renaming it after a howitzer, but the latest type of howitzer in use is the M777 and AFAIK there is no cool nickname for it.

edit to add:

This +1

If I can't think of a name for a ship I often resort to the old thesaurus...

Defiant...

Audacious
Brazen
Raucous
Wayward

Just a few I thought sounded good.

Mine is called the U.S.S. Jun'ko Zane

Those of you who do not know where that name comes from should be in shame (and no looking up on google doesn't count :P)
