Who out there renames their ships or do you just keep the default name?

I rename my ships immediately, and try to come up with something clever.

For example: My Drake's name is "Sir Tanks-a-Lot".

It's important to name your ships for security reasons, as well. If you rename your ship, scan probes only show the name of the ship, not your name. Not a lot of situations where this is HORRIBLY important, but there are some.

Ah yes, I see we have a genius in the field of clever ship names here.

Keep the default name. IT's the best way to do things.

I've used several ship names including, but not limited too: Legend Zero, Western Rose, First Destiny, Cherry Blossom, Crusader, Space Runner, and so much more. Currently I use:

Crusader - Thorax
First Destiny - Tristan
Knight - Myrmidon
Technophile - Catalyst used for salvaging

and I want to name my upcoming Megathron Paladin.

I sometimes name my ships after ancient gods of mythology.

For Example:

Crow - Apollo

Raven - Thor

And so on. Usualy I try to find the ancient god that kinda fits the ship.

As I said in one of the previous ship name threads I sort of have themes for my names. Seemingly generic (although the name does have a history) boy's names for Caldari ships, girl's names after people I know for Gallente. I don't know how it all started, but now I can't break the tradition. (in case you're wondering, I don't even have frigate skills for Amarr or Minmatar, so I don't know what I would call them).

Named a Megathron Jenny once. It wasn't very good, or maybe I just wasn't very good with her Embarassed. She popped within days, RL Jenny would probably have punched me if she'd known about it. Reincarnated her in a navy mega (since the original design was pretty sound) that's still with me after almost a year. Now I'm up to Jenny Mk III in my Kronos.

As a rule, ship names are final so I can only allow myself to change them once.


I'm basically a carebear mission runner btw, so I generally expect to keep most of my ships for a good while. For the ones I don't expect to keep (for whatever reason YARRRR!!) I just assign the first letter of the ship type, a dash and a six digit hex code again based on the ship name plus the current date and time (hashed). So had I named my Kronos right now by that standard it would've been called K-DF4B2E. Not very fitting for her though.

All of mine are various versions of the name "PWN MUFFIN" I have the first one, which was a hac, it had an unpleasant death. My Abaddon was the second PWN MUFFIN DOS, my new hac is called PWN MUFFIN MINI. Anyway most of my ships are called something along those lines.

My girlfriend named my megathron after herself, Two days later it went up/down in flames and explosions.


Don't let your woman near your spaceships, it will cost you.

I usually set a name for each new ship type that I get, i.e Wolf, Hurricane, Vexor etc. and then put in generation numerals for each that blow.

Currently flying:
Cambion VI (Hurricane)
Das Hed IV (Vexor)
Dirge XI (Rifter)

my ship names generally refer to good friends of mine either from other mmos or otherwise as a rule of thumb, mostly. sometimes there are exceptions

for example, my first ever frigate was named Raessa after a friend of mine from another mmo
my first cruiser was named Antross, again, after a friend of mine from another mmo
my first BC was Antross II after the same person
my first BS was/is named Suzu Elas, again after another friend of mine from another mmo
my second cruiser ever was different, named it Azra'dite, a play on aphrodite, the greek goddess

my haulers however are an exception and get different names..

for example, my iteron four is named Nosediver, because the front of it faintly resembles a flattened nose
my iteron three is named ITS A SNAKE after the eve version of weebles stuff "badger badger badger"

my retriever is named Fallen Angel, because with the old graphics, it looked golden and just fit at the time.

but yes, I rename my ships.

I named my passive-tank drake "Unique Snowflake".

Probably the only creative name I've used.

Keep most of the default name and just change your name to someone else's name,why you ask? no reason in particular except i can Laughing

Example: Real name - Voodoo Dogs Megathron = changes to Tripples Megathron


And for a Drake "Stoned Manta" is better I reckon Wink

I name my ships that are above BC and used for PvP after a Greek/Norse god depending on what race ship it is. I put roman numerals after the name to let me know what number ship of that class it is. Currently on hurricane number 18 :S

I don't typically rename "utility" ships, such as haulers...but warships...

Drake: Unseelie, Unholy (destroyed)
Raven: Unhallowed
Kestrel: Thunderbird

etc...

I tend to bounce around different themes, or come up with completely random stuff. My current line of PvP ships all have something to do with Rabite's and Whips.

Drake: Rabite's Flail
Thorax: Rabite's Lash
Ferox: Rabite's Whip (this one is so much scattered debris)

Otherwise I tend to use the corp ticker and a semi appropriate name. I have an ECM ship named LOSER Frazzler, a Charon named LOSER Freighter, and had a thorax named the LOSER Cruiser. For a bit, I was using hull numbers as I produce most of my own ships. My first ships I really made an effort to name were my three Rokhs, Fury's Form, Fury's Flight, and Fury's Fall. They're all dead.

My ship names have to do with the ship name or their shape. My Rapier is named Wit, my Armageddon Geddon It On and my Anathema A Scanner Darkly. The only one I couldn't figure a name for was my Broadsword, and it looked quite byzantine so I called it Kafkaesque.
