Ever run out of ideas for ship names? Well I've done the work for you! I've curated a list of 400+ ship names

Obviously the google docs version is easier to read but I didn't wanna make this post 11 pages long

The day I run out of ship names is the day that KSP refuses to allow me to give my vessels terrible pun names.  Long live Munity, Minity, Mohotivated, Eve Ent Horizon, Silly Gilly, Dunaverse, Ike-E-A, Dresperate, Joolific, Laythered Up, Tylo Brahe, Valliant, Teeny Bop, Pol Taker, and Eeloosive!

Wow that is so helpful! Thank you so much!

I just use numbers for all my 'name worthy' vessels...  Saves me needing to even think about it. 

I do prefix with a two letter 'type' designation to help with identification though (SO = Station, Orbital etc).

The only things I name properly are tracked Asteroids (first letter designates size class).

I'd have to think at least twice about naming a vessel Poseidon -- I've seen (most of) the first movie, and I hear the remake was much the same.

I also see you've missed out one of my more common naming schemes in RSS/RO/RP-1 -- Alpha for Aerobee series sounding rockets, Beta for A-4/RD-100 boosters, and so forth.  Beta 1 Mk. 1a, for instance, flew the first bio-capsule and film camera recovery suborbital missions and (so far) the early downrange distance milstones in my current campaign.  A couple careers ago (I'm not a very good funds optimizer) Gamma flew the first orbital mission (roughly Jupiter/Baby Sergeant class).

Thanks, you really helped me with choosing the name for my vessel.  I've checked several space sites hoping to find a few good names there, but I failed.  How did you manage to create this huge list of names?  I suppose many users want to know your secret^_^

These puns are holy material

I usually name my ships "untitled space craft" or something directly related to the mission. "Cheap jool five" for, well, a cheap Jool-5 mission. Saves time thinking of a cool name

A cool template I just made up while typing this

Realistic= name of some Greek or Roman god+number of attempts that came before 

Kerbilistic= Planet+Some reference+some numbers for fun

Danny2462= kerbal+how it mutalates the kerbol system+ 3000
