I use Artemis Fowl names. Each ship corresponding to a Colfer character with similar traits.
i.e. Holly is my Defiant as shes small, deadly and can cloak.
Domovoi is my Sovy
Artemis is my Intrepid

Annatar (Saurons "Good guy" handle, means Bringer of Gifts, called it that as I've ended up being too generous on this game [Kitted a stranger out with AP beams from mem alpha after 20mins of chatting! lol].)

As for my KDF Ships, all named with the random button as far as I know, (Rarely play him, always feel like I'm a traitor when I do! lol!) But HIS name is Melkor (Saurons Lord and Banished Leader for those who don't know!)
Great... Now I have the urge to rename one of my ships USS Esteldín!

Generally, though, I name my ships after cities, states, provinces, or people. Most of my ships have names like USS Halifax or USS Baltimore, but I have named a few after foreign cities or people.

I was a massive fan of the name Odyssey irrespective of the Odyssey Star Cruiser, so each time I received a new ship, the old one got a placeholder name / registry and the new one became the USS Odyssey.

Depends on the character, the ship, or whatever mood I'm in when I name the character's first ship. I'll usually try to reference something I like; such as deciding to name my Lethean's 5 ships after Golbez and his 4 lords [semi-keeping their tiers]; or just keep spamming the random name until I find something I like. Once I even left a ship with its given name, because it was the name a close friend uses for herself.

So far I've only used the same name for each ship in a character's progression once, for my Caitian. Every ship she flew at her tier was the Catnip, and the old Catnips just got renamed to other catty names.

Most my cruiser gets German names such as Bismarck, Wilhelm. My science ships get the title Squirrel Blaster or some variant thereof. My escorts get Vengeance. All my klink whips get Tax auditor except my kelfar which due to lack of a better name, IKS Peanut Butter. I do have have a galx named Purgatory and another on called spaceveegievamp, in honor of the 1950s The Thing movie I was watching at the time.

*My Tac Ody is the Nova Royale which comes from a book called "Iceni Queen: A Pirate Yarn."

*My Caitin's Fleet Escort is the Rakshasa which is a race of demon tiger-men from Indian mythology.

*My Sci's Ody is named the Tyson for my fave astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

I name my ships according to my mood.

My Constitition is called the USS Abaddon after a play that I wrote when I was an actress (Adit Abaddon. For those who don't know an adit is a horizontal entrance to a mine and Abaddon is an old name for Hell and the devil. 'Highway to Heaven' and 'Road to Hell'... sorry had to share that )

The Galaxy is called Europa after the continent so I could take a picture of the Europa over Europe.

The Excellsior I couldn't think of a name, so I asked a non-STO friend to name it and she chose Thistleflick after a character she used for a series of novels.

Prometheous is called Narcissus after a mythical man who was so beautiful that he fell in love with himself.

and my Defiant retro is called Ferocious... Defiant, Ferocious... get it? ^^
