I open this thread because im interested in how you are naming you ships. Have they just fun names oder are the in an specific order?

My fleet (i am non-pro) is organised in squads, each having a specific strenght and history. The strenght of each squad differs between 10 and 30

Actually i build the South, West, North and East Squads.

The older ones are the Tark, Honk and Draco Squads having fought a couple of glorious fights Smile

Not to forget the strong dArk-Wings Squad =)

For shield purposes there are the H2 eco Squayd and the H1 Bip Squad `Smile

The ships are named like this:

<squadname>-<numer>-Squad

my ships have varous names, from stars, from some sci-fi series or games, from fantasy or they are only from my own thoughts. Mostly rely on some fantasy, mythology, sci-fi or Star Trek Wink *G*
if one is destroyed i maybe build another one with a II on it for the sign that this is the second ship with this name.

I choose the names out of the books from Walter Moers "Die 13 1/2 Leben des Käptn Blaubärs", "Rumo & die Wunder im Dunkeln", "Ensel und Krete" und "Die Stadt der träumenden Bücher". I don't know, how the names of the books are in english, so I posted the german names.

Ships smaller than H4 get a code as Name, where the Ship was produced and the number of produced ships.

Before they were destroyed my ships were named after Royal Navy warships, my flagship was the Ubique which is latin for "everywhere". It is the motto of the Royal Engineers (my regiment)

I'm using whatever comes in my mind and sounds not so bad. I'm organizing the ships by the first letter so e.g. every H11 starts with a B. And I'm building currently the second line ("_II") as I'm tired of thinking of new names.

My little ships' names tend to be random letters (eg "ldmfpmf"), as I cant be bothered naming a ship when its only designed to die a speedy death.

larger ships that are intended to hop out to distant planets tend to have names that are reminders of why they were built - in helps me manage stuff better, as I'm bound to forget what they are all doing otherwise Smile

all the other ships just get random names that spring to mind.

My smallest ships are all named Beacon#, with # being the order in which they were built.

Average-sized ships all have names related to fire. Flare, Ember, Torch, etc.

Large ships have the names of mythical fire creatures, like Phoenix and Dragon.

Really big ships have names like Nova, Prominence, and Inferno. Same fire theme, only bigger Smile

here in .com with my few ships i have named them from the other game i play, as the different systems from I_Rana through I_Achird, I_RaAaS, I_Alphirk, I_Aldhafera, I_TaniaBorealis and I_Meboula are my first 7 h4

in .de i have had different ideas: my h4 were I_Ancestor through to I_Zenith
and then starting again with A..., trying to get things like independence, trust, unity etc...
my h9-11 started as C_ B_ A_ so that levis were listed first, but as the lists are alphabetical, it doesnt matter
first couple of ships were players or friends like B_Crazy-Monkey but now h9 are british monarchs and h10 are current royal navy ships
starting with Aircraft Carriers: first of the new batch is HMS_ArkRoyal

i just with i could rename all my ships, then i would give then all (almost all) Navy names and classes
eg:
h11 A/C
h10 Amphibious Assault Ships
h9 Type 42 Destroyers
h8 Type 23 Frigates
h7- Type 22 Frigates

and start submarines when those are finished

My first few ships had nonsense names... then I started to give them serious names.

Now that I'm producing H10 and H11 I'm naming them after Greek gods. Cool

THe Ark Royal was the name of many british warships, there is currently a carrier named HMS Ark Royal in service with the royal navy, but i think the one which served in WW2 was sunk by submarine (not in port tho)
