I usually name mine after situations...

Duel falcons... Lando and chewies amazing adventures... Hans carbonite years...
Lando, Dutch and rookie... Because everyone knows that duel falcons are for dicks.
Had a 15 minute walk to a tourney in an absolute down pour... Moist-Wing...

I like naming other peoples' builds: "Bad," "Garbage," "Stupid," and my favorite, "Just... why?"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm joking, of course.

Haha! I name all my squadrons so EVERYONE ELSE MUST DO SO TOO!

FYI you can see everyone else's names in the squadron lister — http://xwing-builder.co.uk/list — there's some corkers in there.

I started mostly because as VS said, he forces everyone to do so. But I like doing it anyway, helps keep them straight when I look my list.

I don't get the hate though. If I tell you that I'm playing Bantha Foder or Jan and the Boys, sure that may not tell you much about the squad, but as soon as I put the ships on the table it should be pretty clear what I'm going to play.

It's also not like you can't ask WTH is the Bantha Foder Squad?

I have 'Graduation Day' which is a mini Howlswarm with an OSP and sundries, and I've been thinking about a Blue Plate Special, x2 Blues with Advanced Sensors and Dash Rendar. Not sure it would fit though.

I made one (that is pretty useless to play with, but fun to build/name) called:

 

"Echo and the Bountymen."

 

Echo with particle accelerator, and two bounty hunter Firesprays.

I haven't named any of my lists so far, mostly because I like to use a different one every time if I can, but I was thinking of something along these lines earlier today.

 

Pretty much I just came up with the idea of a "Rebel Rainbow" its an ABXY list with green, blue, red and gold squadron's respectively.  I don't know what upgrades you'd chuck in there and I don't actually own a Y-wing so I'll not be running it myself :/

Truth be told, this is the sole reason I started naming lists -- otherwise I couldn't save them on this excellent squad builder.

 

I have a couple favorites. "High-Impact Torps" features Proton Torpedoes shot from Horton Salm that are boosted by Jan Ors. "Target of Opportunity" features Soontir Fel with Targeting Computer and a Saber Sq. Pilot with Opportunist.

But yeah, coming up with names can be tough because I don't want people to hate me :)

I call any build with Wedge and some unnamed pilots in it "Eat your Wedgetables". Because it really is time.

I do name my squads because I use the Voidstate builder. A friend was looking for a name for his list consisting of Howlrunner with Swarm Tactics and 5 empty Scimitar Squad TIE Bombers. I came up with the name Winchester. Why Winchester you ask? In Viet Nam Winchester was the code word American fliers would use to indicate they were out of ammo/ordinance. It seemed an appropriate name for the list.
