Please. "Tiger's Claw". Done.

Just kidding, although I do have a special place in my heart for the TC.

Depending on where you look I did think that there were several ships named for non-human places, events, people in the ST universe. Obviously, the real reason they didn't make more was because the Enterprise or the Intrepid (which, IIRC was crewed entirely by Vulcans in TOS) twanged our emotional heart strings in a way that an Andorian name would not.

But, truly, the desire to give a Caitan ship a Caitan sounding name is all in the eye of the beholder anyway. A true Caitan name, would probably both be written in a non English font on the hull and potentially be unpronounceable with human vocal cords.

So in light of that. Tiger's Claw is starting to sound better all the time. :-)
