I like the use of "virtue" names because they can be rallied behind by many species.

Which raises another point: I think TPTB messed up by hardly ever showing a ship with an alien name.
I was just thinking, "what about an alien name"

The U.S.S. Shran for an Akira-Class heavy cruiser, or how about the U.S.S. V'Lar for a Norway-Class diplomatic courier?

The possibilities are endless.

For an Aerie-Class ship (see S.S. Raven) I once thought of the name U.S.S. Chok'obo, deciding that a chok'obo was a large flightless bird used by the natives of Alpha Centauri the same way humans used horses on Earth.
