I like it when my characters have certain "themes" for their ship names.

My science admiral has his ships named after synthpop bands from the 80s.

USS New Order
USS Camouflage
USS Alphaville
USS Ultravox
USS Depeche Mode
USS Wolfsheim

The tac admiral has his ships named after roman emperors.

USS Augustus
USS Mark Aurel
USS Vespasian

And then some shuttles and minor ships are named after my home town and country or famous places here.

USS Bayern
USS Nymphenburg
USS Muenchen

My current ship is just the U.S.S. Travis cause there isn't enough room for "William B. Travis". I'm very much proud of my Texas heritage, and being from San Antonio I have a lot of Texas history basically in my backyard. So a lot of my ships are named for famous figures and/or locations in Texas history.

I also have a couple named for U.S. generals, moons and other science-y stuff for the science vessels, and 3 escorts named after 3 of the 5 stealth aircraft used by the U.S. Air Force (Lancer, Nighthawk, and Raptor).

My Engineering Officer has all his ships named after Feudal Japanese clans. My Science Officer has her ships named after Greek mythological figures. Both their shuttles, runabouts, and Delta Flyer are named after various cities in Germany.

My science officer's ships were all named after various properties, states, or transitions of water.

U.S.S. Sublimation
U.S.S. Conduction
U.S.S. Steamboat
U.S.S. Convection
and a few others I forget at the moment..

Delta flyer I named U.S.S. Waveguide to keep the sciency theme.

My new star cruiser I named U.S.S. Promethean just because the look is sleek (Celestial style) so I wanted a sleek sounding name.
