I always liked naming ships Asteroid(Veldspar) or Small Secure Container, sometimes, small Gurista's wreck. The container/wreck one can actually fool noobs with directional scanners. Also naming t2 ships after their t1 counterparts is great. "See look it says right there, 'Zhaymus Hockhold's Merlin' easy kill!" this char doesn't fly AFs but you get the idea.

Sorry if someone already posted these, I didn't want to read this thread.

I usually name my ships after real events or real/former US navy ships. I also follow the old superstition that if you rename a ship after it has been christened, its doomed to sink within 2 weeks.

Even if its not 2 happens eventually Laughing

Ex: I bought a myrmidon this morning and accidentally named it the "Saratiga" (Saratoga). But didn't rename it, and proceeded to have good luck with it until it was destroyed messily and terribly 5 hours later.

Just what ever takes my fancy really. At the moment I have a small mining ship called Barney Rubble, an Iterion called Asaaji II and a cruiser called Bandaka's Glory (both characters from Tezuka's manga "The Buddha.") My last cruiser was called Norberg, but that got destroyed. I should probably stop naming combat ships after characters who meet horrific and/or hilarious deaths. Confused

I once had a ship called vera... if you don't know why then you probably haven't seen Firefly. In that case what are you doing hanging around on the forums? Go watch Firefly. Now.

Guess I keep missing that Episode. Neutral

-1 geek points for not knowing that Vera is the name of Jayne's gun.

when he mentioned vera all i could think of was Vera lynn

I have too many ships to mention but goes something like this:

50% describe its function, i.e. supa tackler
30% are some random name
15% (my pvp ships) have names not fit for this forum Twisted Evil
5% (my events ships) have RP-ish sounding names

My mining command Myrmidon is called Falkor after the good luck dragon in the never ending story, cause myr's really do look like dragons.

The combat Myrmidon is Faran a the main characters warhorse from a fantasy novel.

My Iteron 4 is Bertha cause she is FAT, currently holds over 25,000m3.

My Hyperion is Bright-Nail which is a sword from another fantasy book.

And my Malediction is called Thunderbolt 3, it's a courier ship so it's fitted for speed over long distances. And no 1 and 2 were not destroyed they were retired as I worked my way up the performance ladder.

Muninn = Muninn

See a pattern?


Posted - 2007.04.23 02:53:00 - [82]

Hmmm, I sometimes like to go follow corp mates around while they are ratting and loot/salvage all their leftovers. It's a nice easy thing to do while chilling out. Anyway, as a result I came to name a lot of my ships after the Wombles characters.

But my Viator is called the "Stainless Steel Slug"... cause it's all shiney and looks like polished stainless steel.

I name my ships whatever comes to mind when I get in them

Hurricane - Angelina :p
Stabber - The Flying Phallus
Typhoon - Ave Maria (love the song, I like to yarr to it)
Hoarder - Fata**

Here are my ship names:

Dominix : Mikasa (a venerable old battleship)
Vexor : Kaiyo-Maru (Last warship of the Tokugawa Shogunate)
Iteron V : Kobayashi-Maru (grin)

I recently had to deliver a data chip to 0.0 as part of a mission, so I used a shuttle to get there.
Shuttle : Lock me Amadeus!

i gave up trying to name my ships something witty and original a long time ago. some time between then and now i started naming them things like Raven I, Raven II, etc. nowadays i just ultimately call them 'Empyre's <insert ship name here> Wreck'

actually CCP does it for me.. it kind of means i suck at pvp and walk away from my computer during missions and forget i was playing.

Buzzard -- Stasi = secret police
Drake -- Sturmgewehr = assault rifle
Manticore -- Kriechentod = creeping death
Cerberus -- Totenköpfe = Death's head
Raven -- Nevermore = Edgar A. Poe
Crow -- 30 million my ass = had to pay 30 million for one once, it was the only one in 30 jumps
Chimera --- Cormera = Confederation of red moon

Thats all I fly and they get the same name everytime. Soon as I get my Phoenix Ill have to think of something for that.
