USS Maedhbh NCC 97200-A - Queen of Connacht in the Ulster Cycle. My main ship. Excelsior Retrofit
USS Claíomh Mór NCC 97214 - Gaeilge for 'Big/Great Sword'. Advanced Escort
USS Bean Sidhe NCC 97207 - Gaelic folklore figure. Odyssey Class
USS Sionnach NCC 97199 - Gaeilge for 'Fox'. Excelsior Class. (Formerly USS Maedhbh NCC 97200 - effectively replaced, but I didn't want to get rid of the vessel, so I renamed it.)
USS Fionnachtain NCC 97200/G - Gaeilge for 'Discovery'. Runabout. I assume this sits in the shuttle bay of my ship, hence the similar registry
USS Imeall Chrioch NCC 97200/H - Gaeilge for 'Frontier'. Type 8. As above.
USS Saoirse NCC 92000-A - Gaeilge for 'Freedom'. Excalibur class cruiser.

USS Wolszczan - I named it after a Polish astronomer, co-discoverer of the first planet outside the Solar System.

My main fed tac uses the plays of Shakespeare. Was loosely paired by cruiser/escort to comedy/tragedy but not so much since I used up all my favourites.
Andronicus
Measure
Midsummer Dream (breaks the text field usually)
Othello (shuttle: Iago)
Pericles
Tempest (shuttle: Prospero)
Verona
Windsor

And I gave Macbeth to the new Odyssey. For the Toil and Trouble y'know.

I'm less serious with my alts. One is character names from Genso Suikoden (Flik, etc.)
And my KDF She-Hulk uses Marvel characters (I.S.S. M.O.D.O.K., etc.)

All my ships are named after English navel vessels from the Horatio Hornblower book series. Def worth the read and some epic names to boot!

Sadly, being on a new toon and starting to play two years after I created my account (I didn't have the PC specs to run at launch, or even more recently until the F2P launch) I haven't really become serious with my ship names, or character names. I'm sure that will change, so forgive the utterly childish thoughts that come to mind when seeing the repeated name. Also, to act as a disclaimer, the references tie to my use of medicinal marijuana, which I don't openly like talking about, but am merely mentioning because of relevancy.

Captain's (Admiral's) Name: Ira J. (James) Stoner

USS Devil's Grass - NCC-94357 (Shi'Kar-Class Light Cruiser)
USS Devil's Grass-A - NCC-94357-A (Excalibur-Class Cruiser)
USS Devil's Grass-B - NCC-94357-B (Akira-Class Heavy Escort)
USS Devil's Grass-C - NCC-94357-C (Defiant-Class Tactical Escort)
USS Devil's Grass-D - NCC-94357-D (Prometheus-Class Advanced Escort)
USS Devil's Grass-E - NCC-94357-E (Odyssey-Class Star Cruiser)
USS Devil's Seed - NCC-94420 - (Delta-Class Shuttle) (I think that's the right registry, but I might be wrong.)

As you can see, not too much thought has gone into my choices. I think my KDF is suffering the same fate, too. In time though, seriousness shall prevail. Plus, I'm not too keen of overusing the 420 numeric in the registries due to overkill on the obvious reference. That, and well, I don't feel like irking people or conveying the wrong message...

I also highly approve. My Excelsior retrofit is the USS Cú Chulainn.

Sláinte!
