Recommended Posts

those are some clever names. I think the best name I ever saw on a ship when at lake Michigan was "Moose and Squirrel". Recently saw one named Bikini Bottom with Spongebob on it *shudders*

 

 

I named my band in Guitar Hero: World Tour to "SpongeBob's Revenge" gran_risa.gif

Perhaps that would work for a ship in Rogue Trader as well?

Our Lunar Class Cruiser, Luscinia Argentum, is a nice "home."   Sometimes the Void feels more like home than anything else.  =)    I think the Latin names sound very nice to the background of 40K, but sometimes the non-latin names are just more fun.  LOL.  Depends on the Captain and crew I guess.

Gilded Eagle Lunar Class Cruiser

The "Flit" , a tiny (600 meter) Custom ship used regularly in my Dark Heresy games.

The ship names in the Halo Series could make some good ones for RT/DH

Human (that I remember)

Pillar of Autumn

In Amber Clad

Forward Unto Dawn

Point of No Return

Covenant (again what I remember)

Truth and Reconciliation

Ascendant Justice

Purity of Spirit

Shadow of Intent

There are a few less grandiose names in the Halo universe as well; a number of civilian cargo freighters have been mentioned in various places, including the This End Up, Bulk Discount, Contents Under Pressure, Horn of Plenty, and Wholesale Price. Other UNSC (United Nations Space Command) vessels have names that are less poetic/grandiose as well: the Two for Flinching, the Do You Feel Lucky, and the Glasgow Kiss (the term being a colloquialism for a heat-butt).

The ones I listed are just what I remember off the top of my head.  Also vehicles and Vessels from several anime series could be good inspiration for RT/DH Ships.
