The actual reason for this is that it protects Cryptic Studios from legal action by said parents.

The EULA was written by their corporate lawyers. It's unlikely that they're going to change this agreement unless you call Cryptic Studios and give them your Bar Number.

This is not true. There is no US law that covers what you can name an imaginary space ship in a video game.

This is completely true. People have already had their Foundry access revoked for violating these rules. I'm not guessing on this, StormShade (a Cryptic employee) has confirmed that this has happened.
