Re: Does anyone have suggestions for names of starships

There are loads of possible name origins; mythological gods and creatures, military leaders and battlefields, ground-breaking scientists, social activists and campaigners, respectable politicians, places, previous ships, and on and on .

The real possibilities are endless. But then there are all the future famous people between now and Trek time (250-odd years), and of course all the same types of people on alien worlds.

If you want some random names thrown out then here it goes:
