When some you name your ships, are you trying to invoke something? Or just asthetics?

My Fed Engineer's cruisers ended up sharing names with Shuttles (
Endeavour, Challenger, Discovery
, etc), mostly because both have a tendency to be named for famous vessels of exploration.
My Fed Tac has spent most of his career in the Akira-class (now refitted to Armitage specs)
. I got it from a semi-canon list of Akira names on Memory Beta. As the dedication plaque reads: "First in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen."
With my Fed Sci, I tried to follow the class schemes of all her ships. Her Nova-class mini-Sov was
, after the example of the
; her Horizon-class was
(significant boundaries like "Equator" or "Shoreline"; a moraine is the berm of earth pushed up at the front of a glacier). For an Intrepid ala
(from another Memory Beta list, if I recall, almost certainly named for the research sub). And finally, the Luna-class
should need no explanation.
My Klingon Tac's ships were... colorful. His first command was the Quch'Hoh ("Joyful Murder" or something along those lines); when it was lost in a raid, he was given the Qul mI'wI ("Fire Dancer"). Then came "Blood Drinker"/"Drinker of Blood". He currently commands the Qin-class
, named (of course) for the legendary captain.
Finally, my Gorn Eng named his Freighter "S'yahazah", the Egg Bringer.
