My latest Romulan has ship names taken from book titles on my uppermost book shelf.
So far we have
RRW Snow Crash (Neal Stephenson)
RRW All That Remains (Patricia Cornwell)
and the next few will be
RRW Black Notice (Patricia Cornwell)
RRW Divine Endurance (Gwyneth Jones)
and my shuttle will be
RRW Seven Up (Janet Evanovich)
Hope I don't get greedy and buy too many ships otherwise this naming scheme will result in the RRW Striptease (Carl Hiaasen)

USS Beverly Hills (Vesta-class) - the ship of my main Fed Sci. Named after Beverly Hills, CA.

USS Gordon Gekko (D'Kora-class) - the ship of my Ferengi. Named after Gordon Gekko.

USS Turtledove (Wells-class) - named after the alternate history writer Harry Turtledove.

USS Defiance (Steamrunner-class) - named after the TV Show/Computer Game. Has served as the test bed for Omega and Romulan plasma torpedoes (since then reverted back to quantum torpedoes).

USS Larry Thorne (Prometheus-class) - named after the Special Ops legend Lauri T?rni. He had a rather interesting career.

AKS Emperor Reclaw (Mirror Vo'quv-class) - named after the Emperor Reclaw. Loving this ship, I find it better than the normal version and would love to have a fleet version of it.

I have a bunch of other ships, but those are the ones with more story to their name.

USS Texas NCC-361836 (Ambassador Class): This ship is my flag ship and my personal favorite. I named it after Texas because I want to move there, also because you don't mess Texas.

USS Dallas NCC-361836-A (Defiant Class): This ship is my grinding ship that use to quickly mow through a bunch of missions in a short amount of time. I named it after the City of Dallas because I'm a Cowboys fan, and I want to move to the rural East Texas area just outside of Dallas.

USS Florida NCC-281861 (Sovereign Class): I'm about to get this ship and figured that I would name it after my home State, will likely keep it in my stable just because. Might play with it for a bit before switching back to the Dallas or Texas.

My next 2 free ships will be named the Montgomery A, which is the name of my son and first capital of the Confederacy, and Brahman which is the mascot for my alma mater South Florida.

My previous ships were named Montgomery (Miranda Class), Brooksville (Constitution Class), and Stonewall (Akira Class). I did not like the way they played so I deleted them from my stable of ships.

When I first started playing, my inspiration for ship names came from the New Generation arc of Robotech (known in Japan as Genesis Climber Mospeda).

Flagship: U.S.S. Ikazuchi (Odyssey-Class Tactical Cruiser). The Ikazuchi-class were the carriers that had the quick-launch Alpha Bays on the sides. I liked the name and it's stuck with me. Also, Ikazuchi is a Japanese word for Lightning and was a class of destroyer in the 19th Century.
U.S.S. Izumo (Heavy Cruiser Retrofit). That was the huge command ship that appeared at the end of Mospeda. In Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles, they renamed it as the SDF-4 Liberator.
U.S.S. Ark Angel (Galaxy-Class). The Ark Angel was the colony ship that appeared at the end of The Shadow Chronicles.

After that, I went with some other naming conventions

U.S.S. Newport News: Ushaan-class. Named after the destroyer my dad served on as a gunner.
U.S.S. Britannia: Ambassador-class. That was the name that came with it and I thought it was a good name for a ship.
U.S.S. Graviton City (Sovereign-class). Named after the main setting for Project A-ko, one of my favorite anime movies. And yes, I do have bridge officers on it named A-ko, B-ko, and C-ko!
I.S.S. Elizabeth Bathroy (Mirror Patrol Escort). I came with the name Elizabeth, so I thought since it was from the Mirror Universe that it sounded like it should be named after The Blood Countess.
I.S.S. Dark Star (Mirror Deep Space Science Vessel). Named after the John Carpenter film. It also just sounded evil!

For my Federation small ships, I have a runabout called U.S.S. New River, which is a river near where my grandparents lived. I also a Type-8 Shuttle called the Ryo-Ohki, which is named after the cabbit in Tenchi-Muyo!

For my Romulan alt, she's in a ship called the Flamebird--a name of one of the crime-fighting duo on Krypton in the Superman comics. My Klingon alt sails on a ship called the Turisas, which is named after a symphonic metal band that got their name from a Finnish god of war.
