FlashHarry: U.S.S. J. Edgar Hoover
drjekel_mrhyde: U.S.S Microsoft Big and bloatedU.S.S Google Super spy ship that follows other ships around collecting data to sellU.S.S Apple Cost over runs, not as fast as other ships, outdated tech, but looks hella coolU.S.S Walmart Sold to China within 3 yearsSeriously how soon will they start selling naming rights to corps
theurge14: USS Imperialist Pig
Prank Call of Cthulhu: I was told (a probably apocryphal story) about a USCG ship, Firebush. Supposedly one of the COs was a redheaded female, and the first announcement of "Firebush, arriving" was met with many hearty lulz.
skullkrusher: USS Corpus Christi-Los Angeles-class attack submarines are named after U.S. cities, but religious groups protested the selection of Corpus Christi because it meant that an instrument of war would bear the Latin phrase "body of Christ." The Navy rectified the problem by modifying the sub's name to City of Corpus Christi.Was not expecting the complaints about a ship named after Jesus to be FROM religious groups
maram500: Great Janitor: USS Starbucks - Starts off as just one ship, soon multiples and is found everywhereUSS Trojan - Best at protectionUSS Snuggles - Nothing worse than to have to admit that your ship was sunk by the Snuggles.USS Pepsi - rest of the fleet keeps calling it the USS CokeUSS Xbox 360 - Red Ring of Death isn't a new weapon it uses, it's what sank it.USS Wii - Every screen onboard looks like crap compared to those on other shipsUSS Walmart - Cheapest ship in the fleet; crewed by people desperate for any kind of workUSS Target - Better than USS Walmart, but just barelyUSS Ford Motor Co. - Often found adrift, since something is always brokenUSS Bugatti Veyron - Ridiculously overpriced, but faster than anything elseUSS Electronic Arts - Cannot be operated without an active internet connectionUSS AT&T - Wait...it actually works? Wow.
Snarfangel: Come on, the USS Prince of Peace is an awesome name for an aircraft carrier.
Aidan: m053486: DDG-70 Hopper would like a word.../They named it after a woman//Wasn't a problem for me, but a lot of sailors and officers had a problem with the nameAs a woman and a programmer, with all due respect to those sailors and officers, they should sit the fark down and show some farking respect. Madam Hopper was a boss.

cman: No one living should have a ship named after them.That is just the way it should be.
ds615: This is why the Soviets just numbered things. It's hard to get all riled up about the KV-132.
Bermuda59: I always found it strange that they would name an ammuntion ship USS Pyro
kbronsito: one of my grandfather's cousins had a navy ship named after him and all he had to do was jump on a granade during the korean war. it was sold to pakistan in the 80s though. I think its probably scrap metal by now.
BizarreMan: Seems to me that USS Hunley would be a good name for a sub.
UNC_Samurai: You want to start a flamewar? Go onto a naval wargaming forum and ask whether the USS Alaska (CB-1) was a cruiser or a battlecruiser - it's some of the neckbeardiest fun you can have.
maxx2112: To no one's everlasting glory, there isn't a ship named Rodger Young./ yet
Strolpol: Given all the whining and moaning in the article over naming issues, the most obvious way forward is that we simply choose names that EVERYONE will hate or otherwise dislike equally: name all new ships after My Little Pony characters./with matching paint jobs//then we'd get Congressional sessions arguing the superiority of one pony versus the other alternatives///you can't tell me it wouldn't be more work than they're getting done now
Jubeebee: USS Jesus Tapdancing Christ - minesweeper
Bill_Wick's_Friend: FlashHarry: U.S.S. J. Edgar HooverBad name for a ship.Too much drag.
