My current main vessel is the USS Elysian, a Deep Space Science Vessel. It comes from the term "Elysian Fields" which has a relation to the heavens and what-not; perfect for space, especially uncharted and untouched space, which is basically a DSSV's specialty.

Other ship names I have had are the USS Murakami, named after a favorite author of mine. The USS Wayfarer, a pretty self-explanatory name. The USS Resolute and USS Emissary, both escorts and both with names that play off the Defiant name and DS9 in general. Then two early science vessels; a Nova-class named the USS Aurora and an Olympic-class named the USS Borealis.

I prefer to give my science vessels "ethereal" quality names, they seem to fit the purpose.

I named my Runabout USS Canigagigue, after the creek that runs behind the house where I grew up.

All my Fed Engineering Officer's ships have been named after horse breeds except for the T4 Science Vessel that came with the name U.S.S. Cruiser.

Well,

U.S.S. Cherokee -because I have Cherokee blood.
U.S.S. Cutlass -because it's a type of sword. (reassigned to the S.C.E.)
U.S.S. Endeavour -because it was the name of the ship in the ST stories I planned to write.
U.S.S. Challenger -because that was the original name of the ship when I got it and I liked it.
U.S.S. Valhalla -because my H.S. mascot was a viking.
U.S.S. Valkyrie -because that was the cheer squad at my H.S.
U.S.S. Andromeda -because it was my favorite ship in the anime series Starblazers.
U.S.S. Calisto -because for a Luna class, I like the name.
U.S.S. Capricorn -because it's my Zodiac sign.

My Fed-Alien Orion Tac captain has all hers named after privateers and their vessels, most notably the Defiant-Class USS Golden Hind.

My Engineer captain has a Star Cruiser with the singularly unimaginative name of USS Leviathan - in addition to the mythic connotations, it's simply the Hebrew word for "whale".

My Science captain has gone with names of various scientists involved in studies of electromagnetism, like Marconi, Tesla, Maxwell, etc.

ANd my new Lib Borg engineer is going with a butterfly theme, starting with the original-Connie museum ship Mariposa.

I tend to use themes for an entire line of a toons ships. Irion's theme is warhorses so there's the Lipizzan, the Warhorse, the Percheron, and the Friesian. Plug's theme is cryptozoological primates because he looks like a cross between a orangutan and Big Foot's mini-me so there is the Wendigo, the Yeti, Yowie, Mogollon, and Nuk-luk. My science toon Baloo's theme is of course bears he still on the Miranda so it is called the Helarctos for the worlds smallest bear the sun bear.
