I think ships should be named after qualities

Juan Lewis

In April 2010 a furor arose when it was reported that Mabus made the proposal to name a United States Navy warship the USS John P. Murtha (LPD-26) after the late Pennsylvania Democratic congressman John Murtha. Additional naming controversies occurred due to the naming of auxiliary ship after civil rights activist Cesar Chavez who has described his service in the U.S. Navy as "…the worst two years in my life,"[22][23] and a littoral combat ship after former Arizona Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, after she suffered life-threatening wounds in the 2011 mass shooting in her home district of Tucson, Arizona.
Subsequent ship namings include his January 6, 2016 announcement of his naming of another auxiliary ship after civil rights activist and sitting incumbent Georgia Democratic Congressman John Lewis. Mabus further stated that this particular class of auxiliary ship, of which the John Lewis would be the lead ship, would all be named after civil rights leaders.[25] Mabus followed this action with his July 14, 2016 naming of the subsequent after gay rights icon and former San Francisco Democratic politician the late Harvey Milk.
If we name ships by people or things, we might end up with a ship named "Harvey Milk".

But you don't have ships Canada.
And your patrol boat will be renamed after prominent Canadian politicians for example:
HMCS Harjit Sajjan
HMCS Wai Young
HMCS Ujjal Dosanjh
HMCS Herb Dhaliwal
HMCS Ziad Aboultaif
HMCS Wajid Khan

If you're going to have naming conventions at all instead of just naming ships whatever the fuck you feel like, they should describe the ship's function. Some example names would be these:

USS Buoyant Death Trap
USS Waste of Taxpayer Dollars
USS Nigger Boat
USS Gay Pride Parade
USS Tugboat Fodder
USS Admiral Dick Willy's Gang of Seamen
USS Thai Fuck Shack
USS Shoved by Asuka Into the Gullet of a Giant Space Monster
USS Banking Cabal Attack Dog
USS Anime Waifus Smell Terrible and Are Awful and Problematic, You Should Marry a Nice Church Girl Instead and Raise Jamal's Spawn

A fair few of those names or at least very similar have already been used, the RN had a big thing for names like that back in the day.

Harvey Milk
Oh this jackass.
marine saved Gerald Ford from getting shot
turns out he's a closeted homosexual
he's the ex-boyfriend of Harvey Milk ex-boyfriend
Milk outs him saying it's for the good of the community
marine doesn't get invited to White House
family disowns him
drinks himself to death

The ship names were one thing Halo got right, an SSB or CV with progressively more ridiculous names like Two For Flinching would be amusing.

I think UNSC Glasgow Kiss and UNSC Do You Feel Lucky? with the question mark really drew the point home.

There was actually a second cruiser called UNSC Feeling Lucky

I think the USN should name their ships after Hollywood celebs. It would be very fitting.

We still haven't had a USS Coolidge, despite him being our greatest president and supporting growth of the navy. Maybe we're just waiting for something silent enough to be justify the name

Bismark deserves the greatest navy of all time to be built in his name. The greatest militarist and statesman to ever grace this gay earth.
First interplanetary carrier group should hold his name tbh.

You absolute cuckold, that is exactly what makes him great. He knew to leave well enough alone unlike every single scumbag that came after him dragging this country deeper and deeper into shit.

Give each class of ship a naming category, islands, rivers, mythological monsters/heroes, Admirals, Adjectives starting with a particular letter, even politicians. It feels suitably autistic and immediately identifies a ships role and class as soon as its name is spoken.

But then people would fight over what states/cities get the best names, and the ones that won would be the most cancerous.
USS California
USS Detroit

It has to be something no politician cares about, and it has to be random.

Arleigh Burke class, a class of a planned 77 ships, that may be extended to as many as 118, that was originally to retain the traditional naming convention for destroyers, that of U.S. Navy and Marine Corps leaders and heroes.In these early conflicts and right through to World War II and up to the current War on Terror, many sailors and marines, from cooks to SEALs to Marine Commandants and Fleet Admirals, distinguished themselves in battle, earning the Medal of Honor or Navy Cross, (among others medals and, posthumously in some cases).
In the 21st century, the Navy has broadened the term "leaders and heroes" to include politicians, such as US Senators and Navy Secretaries, who made significant contributions to the Navy away from the battlefield, and men and women of the Navy Department who have become pioneers in the fields of technology and strategy as well as for civil rights, breaking through barriers for women and minorities.
I could not decide which reaction image best captured my response to this, so I'll just post them all.

Makes sense for a ship class that loves headbutting everything. You'd expect brain damage.

This looks like a good source of acceptable names. Not all of them, but there are quite a few gems in there and elsewhere in the Warhammer 40k literature.

USS Retributor
USS Death Hawk
USS Astral Fist
USS Burning Blood
USS Doom Eagle
etc.

It's like you want your shipfu to get bullied for that chuuni as fuck name.

For what reason? Wouldn't you want to sail aboard the HMCS Heracles, or HMCS [insert name of slightly less cancerous Leaf politician]?

Because then politicians will fight over it for their own prestige, or for whomever pays or blackmails them.

What the fuck is that narrow blonde 20 year old cunt in British media called? The gay socialist one? He'd get a ship named after him because he supports the Labor party, and the moment they got in power the next carrier would be HMS Faggot Hipster (whatever his name is).

Fair point, in that case limit it to islands, waterways, animals, mythological figures/beasts, weather, and adjectives.

HMS Owen Jones
Fuck, that's a terrifying thought. I don't think anyone would blame the crew that scuttled that ship as soon as she entered deep water.
