I looked back a few years and didn't see a topic for this, so if an older one exists, my apologies.

To kick things off we had two memorable freighters, 'The Flying Chicken' and 'Patchwork Death'. Sadly, neither survived, but we had some great times in those old wrecks.

What interesting names did you or your players bestow upon the ships in your adventures?

My very first PC (Solo-esque smuggler, of course) had a YT-1300 called the "ShadowRun,"
while my longest-running PC (Female Hotshot Starpilot turned Young Jedi) eventually wound up flying a Ghtroc 720 called the "Acronaut."

"Patchwork Death" is a riot. Hopefully, it was some kind of jury-rigged ugly and that the name was warranted.

It was! I lost count of how many different ships we used salvaged parts from but it started as an unholy amalgam of a YT-1300 (hull) and a Z-95 (wings & lasers). We had a Jawa Tongue-Tied Engineer who kept the whole thing flying (mostly) but he traded away the spare parts and occasionally kidnapped unattended droids.

Haha, he should've been driving around in a repulsorlift van with "fReE OIlbATHs" on the side.

Ha. I LOLed at this. I'm definitely going to have a Jawa do that in my game.

When I wrote up my lawyer-turned-Rebel smuggler("legitimate businessman!") character, I named his YT-1930 freighter the Winning Argument. All the modifications he made to the Winning Argument were indeed (technically) legal.

I like the name from the novels, "Mighty Oak Apocalypse". It's a wookie-owned ship, and its crew call it the MOA,

Lost Stars is one of my favorite Star Wars novels. The fact that it's a Young Adult novel does not detract from it at all.
