Just a simple question. I got bored one night and decided to go through and try to come up with a good name for each of my ships that I have and want to get. I mean, they all had names in reality with a only a few exceptions, right? It's a neat little thought exercise and a way to make my fleet feel a little more unique. If you do this to then by all means share them, I'd love to hear other people's ideas and how they interpreted each ship. As for my own, these are my main ones in port right now. Apologies for any linguistic butchering I inflict with this list.

My Charles Martel has been renamed: Fifi.

She does not like Big Battleships, and indeed, is quite shy around them. She feels heavy cruisers are intimidating, but will flirt with them, but always at range. She wishes she could smoke like the Brits but dislikes the smell. She is attracted to destroyers, but when they mention fish in the water in closer confines, she gets confused and flees. She is not a fan of airpower, and secretely hopes they won't bother her too much.

Overall, my girl Fifi, is a bit of a loner. Beautiful and deadly, she can still 'fire up' your imagination...

I used to give my ships odd nicknames, but not so much nowadays.

  • Iwaki 'Pickle' or 'Death Pickle'
  • Tirpitz 'Tippy'
  • Bogue 'Bog'

I like to call my Bismarck a piece of doodoo. I only have fun in it 1 match in 3.

I might call my Izumo 'big ugly' once I start actually playing it.

 27 names of the Cleveland class, 9 in the Independence class, [ Fond of the Belleau Wood and San Jacinto, my self..] anything to give em a different flavor. .the Kongo currently bears the  unfortunate nickname "Gill" right now because of it's penchant for drawing Torpedo Bombers..

Names? Waaa, well most of the names that are in game are what I call my girls by! 

 

The only nickname I have is calling Mogami: Mo-Mo-Chan. 

Buki for Fubuki is another one. lul

Ummm.... yes and no.

I had one premium ship on the EU server which I called Itcyitchycoo.... guess which one?

I played with the option of asking WG to allow us to name our ships, but that would VERY quickly be abused by the idiots and kids ... so not a good idea.
