I named my Nemesis "Krasny Oktyabr".

Fans of Tom Clancy will understand this reference.

Watch out for the galley cook.

I used to name my ships with a theme, religious names for Amarr, Kilrathi names for Caldari. A few remain like that:

Crusader - Clarity of Purpose
Malediction - Black December
Zealots - Theocratic Dominion
Sacrilege - Zaragram's Heresy
Armageddon - Excessive Negation
Apocs - Chorus of Angels
Abaddons - His Will Manifest

Falcon - Strakha
Manticore - Paktahn
Crow - Dralthi
Raven - Hvarkann

Nowadays I just pick whatever sounds cool.

Legion - Vesuvius
Tengu - Kodiak
Daredevil - Hatefang
Slicer - Wrathspite
Dramiel - Death's Sickle

I often go with some play on the name of ship type.

Such as:
Raven - Corax (Corvus Corax is latin for Raven)
Cormorant - Black Shag (which is a cormorant, really)
Caracal - ***** Galore (it's a cat after all)
Drake - Mallard (well, it's a duck)
Hulk - Jennifer (it's a ship, so it's a she, ergo a she-hulk, so Jennifer Walters ;))
Blackbird - Oxcart (name of the project leading to (A12) SR71 Blackbird)

And more stupid dog latin / geek names like that ;)

Oh, struck by profanity filter, a *****cat is obviously bad ...

Mine tend to have a theme for each ship type. For example, my Vexor cruisers I use for combat are all called the Argos Vexor [Greek Letter] (where the letter changes up every time I get blown up and replace the ship). My mining ships are called the Rockhammer [letter], where the letter is the initial of the system that ship is based in.

I called a Tristan Isolde once, because I didn't have the willpower not to.

My cargo haulers are the River King (because I was thinking of a song about riverboats at the time) and Tuggy the Tugboat (because I am, in fact, five).

I usually try and think of random names.

Drake: Unicorn Giggles
Hulk: Roid Muncher
Obelisk: Bertha
Probing Ship: Probah
Orca: Wicked Boostah
CNR: Baby Farts
Itty V: Space Train CHOO CHOOO
Occator: Cheesy Doodle

To name a few

Recycled Heroes

I've got a rifter named 'Tasty Morsel'
Jag named 'Totally not a Rifter', sometimes I'll name a rifter that too
WH Pilgrim 'Nodoze'
Rupture 'Ingersol Rand'
Gank Abby 'Facemelt Inc.'
covert ops '-☼#0╪►╓≥╪►↕◘₧╤'

My first ever cruiser hadn't even earned itsself a name before I got it blown up in the first mission I took it to, so I named my second cruiser 'Keen Overconfidence'

If i am in the mood to name a ship I will just go with what feels right at the time.

Orca - Caution Wide Turns
WH Dominix - Deep Core
Salvager Ships - Junker
Typhoon - Narwal

See, this is a naming convention I can wrap my head around. Names like "Gutter ****", "Swamp Donkey", "Pocket Tosser", or "The Angry Carnie" ring true to me.

Edit: For some reason, it didn't occur to me that a slang term for a woman with questionable morals would be filtered.

All my ships are generally called 'Spacemoship' or the PvP one's are called 'Your mum'. Mainly cos I die a lot and it's amusing for peoples combat logs/notifications to say 'Your group of heavy Pulse Laser II's deactivate as your mum begins to explode'.

Juvenile I know..... Wink

Old Generals, VC/GC and Medal of Honour recipients, or soldiers who were just well known for being brave (Jack Churchill and such).
Oh, and people i know who were/are soldiers.

Idea from The Rodger Young from starship troopers.
