In game I've seen hundreds if not thosends of ship names and most of them are unique. This made me curious to see if these names were chosen for a reason or just because it sounded cool.

My current ship is called U.S.S. SHIRLY WALLIS.
It's named after my mother inlaw who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Before that it was called the U.S.S. BECKS-VIER
after my favourite beer. Lol


What's yours called and why?

I have a cruiser and escort with Japanese names. My escort is named "Ikazuchi" Japanese for thunder, and a name they give to navy destroyers, so fitting for an escort. My cruiser is named "Kongo" a Japanese mountain that they named a WW2 battleship after. Once i get a Armitage (been putting it off so I an buy with dil instead of spending money) I will name it "Shokaku" Japanese WW2 aircraft carrier meaning "Flying Crane".

I.K.S Dragon Pride IV and U.S.S Dragon Pride-D
Both cruisers, both my little darlings.

Since I was conceived and from earliest memory, not a single day goes without a feeling of pride at being a anthropomorphic land dragon, and a self taught Furry Artist and bestowed that title on the ships that carry me to worlds beyond......


Or a land dragon furry who draws stuff and slapped a cool name on the hull, if you must get all mumbo jumbo and technical about it. =3

Peace ya'll.

Mine range from serious to funny, so I'll start with funny.

For one of my characters, my ships are named after bus models and semi truck manufactures. USS Freightliner, USS Blue Bird, USS International, and USS School Bus all speak for themselves on the naming trend. I have more, but I belive these four get the point across.

On another one of mine, I've ran with US state/Battleship names. Most common one I run is the USS Arizona.

I have the occasional ship named after TV shows and characters (USS Airwolf, USS KITT, and USS Wilton Knight to name a few).

I have a T1 ship named after a late US Senatorm but I don't use it much.

There's a few others I have that are mash ups name parts and some KDF ones that are really off the wall (i.e. IKS HoH puch which was my understanding to be Killer Toliet at some point).

On my two level 50s I have

USS Cerberus - Prometheus/Cerberus hybrid because the Cerberus class is just ugly. Named for my old rp ship from about 4 or 5 years ago, now the hero ship of my fanseries.

IKS QeylIS BetleH - Mirror Vor'cha because it has a better BOff layout than the Negh'var, I imagine Klingon ships will have been called the Sword of Kahless throughout history.
