For the very same reason.

I named mine in pure humor just as displayed in my signature

USS GornIn60Seconds

Opening a lockbox is like using a public restroom when u gotta poo.
You are just hoping nobody blew on the seat or that all the toilet paper is gone.

Named my Tac's ships after figures / places from Irish history, including the legendary figure of Cu Chulainn (3 of those), and the 11th century High King Brian Boru. I couldn't think of a good one off the top of my head for my Armitage, (I don't think USS Niall of the Nine Hostages would look very good) so I called it the USS Emerald.

I started named my Sci's ships after scientists from the Half Life game, but I got bored of that when I reached T5, so I called my ship the USS Porunga because I'd been watching a lot of the abridged series of Dragonball Z at the time.

A bit of a mix for me, but they all have a purpose

USS Adventura was my first ship because that was why I started.

USS Burley Griffin is the name of a lake in my home city, named after the designer of the City.

USS Southern Cross, a constellation appearing on the Australian flag

USS Brindabella, A mountain range in Australia.

USS Labradoodle, a popular dog breed in Australia (Labrador / Poodle). My wife wants one.

Is there a theme? Well.... sort of....

I'm a dummy so coming up with names for things is always hard. So I have a couple really easy "Themes" that I use when naming ships. The one usually use, is simply name them after ships from Anime I like.

I've had the U.S.S. Arcadia, U.S.S. Soyokaze, U.S.S. Swordbreaker, and U.S.S. Exelion. (If you can name what the last two are from you get a cookie)

There was period of time I named all my ships after the scientific names of flowers too... I've Had a U.S.S. Iridiceae, Oliceae.... (Not sure I spelled those right)

I've also named a few after plays, U.S.S. Phantom, U.S.S. Brigadoon, U.S.S. Pinafore...

USS Artemis, Odyssey Star Cruiser on my main fed eng, even though it really doesnt turn *that* well, its still a very graceful, beautiful ship.

USS/IKS Otana, tac escort retro on my fed eng, brel bop on my kdf tac. Named after the transport from the X-Wing Alliance game. I love that game and that ship.

USS Marathon, Assault Cruiser on my main fed eng and fed tac, not after the battle but because I love to run, even though if I push it too hard I start to break my legs again. (MVAE got named Triathlon as a joke, Im not much of a swimmer, and I dont use the ship much anyway)

IKS Arachnophobia, Guramba on my KDF tac. I was going to use the class name for starfish, Asteroidea, but it just didnt sound right. Arachnophobia doesnt quite fit either, but "fear of something usually somewhat spiky" was good enough.

IKS Casino Riale, Kar'Fi on the kdf tac, a joke that someone in Qo'noS Zone came up with when I was trying to name the thing (Riale being the character name). There was also "Riale With Cheese" but that would not fit.

USS Starchaser, Recon Sci Vessel. Should be pretty self-explanatory.

USS Arrogance, on my pure threat control fed tank, also should be pretty self-explanatory.

---

Basically, the names I use are always important in some way or another or mean something, at least to me personally. I rarely ever just slap a name on there (although, atrox ... Hello Kitty ... yeah).

I have a variety of themes I've used. But the theme varies by the character.

Melati Kusumu has reptile themed names, her current ship is "Doom Serpent"

Meghan Eridian has ships named after actresses who played characters named Eris. The "Rachel" is named after the voice actress who did Eris in "The Grim adventures of Billy and Mandy".

Chuft uses derivatives of "Traitor's Claw" the name of the Kzinti ship in TAS ep "The Slaver Weapon".

Monica Rappaccini uses names related to fictional and real life secret research projects, her current ship is named "Manhattan" after the Manhattan Project(US nuclear research project).
