Great 100 post man - that URL is cool. I can't believe they make something like that. *Bookmarked*

Yes.

I think it was common to name a ship after a certain quality, maybe pirate captains were more humorus when naming their vessels.

The men-of-war could be named "Bravery" or "Manhood" or named after someone in the countrys royal family or national symbols like "The duke of NN" or "Britannia"

Mybe after some old mythical creature like "Unicorn" or gods and godesses like "Victoria"

Hope it helps!

I used to be a mod there :cry:

The site's down and I don't think it's coming back up. I started a topic about classes of ships and I can't remember there being any topic about specific names...

Well, it's still up:

But the latest post was two weeks ago. Is the site having forum problems, or is no one simply not posting?

This is my favorite by far. 8) I guess after that, I'd go for the Queen Mary's Revenge.
