    USS Siegfried...either Miranda-class or Constitution-class. I'm undecided.

    Well, I mean, that only makes sense if you know where your ship is.

    USS Deepening, Vesta-class. (If you're worried the name doesn't fit the class, "Deepening" is the Andorian word for midnight in Trek lit, a time of communal meals in a clan's keep. Hearth and family, so Vesta is appropriate!)

    I have a list of ship names for my personal (sadly imaginary) fleet. Deepening is the flagship.

    Mine would be the USS Rabid Gerbil.

    It gets into a lot of fights--because, with a name like that, it can't avoid them.

    Boldly go....

    I presume the USS Hephaestus would be crewed by Vulcans?
    I love the idea of USS Vonnegut that someone mentioned, how about USS Billy Pilgrim or USS Tralfamadore? or even USS Poo-Tee-Weet?
    How about:

    USS Baikonur
    USS Victor Hugo
    USS Charlemagne
    USS Karl Marx
    USS Weatherwax
    USS Bobby Charlton
    USS Beatles
    USS Ursula Le Guin

    USS Karatek
    (Prometheus Class)

    Given the history, the name fits the ship class.

    The names of the ships in my fleet would be more like the Culture novel series, if I was a fleet admiral. Some I would definitely include:

    USS No More Mr Nice Guy
    USS Of Course I Still Love You
    USS So Much For Subtlety
    USS Just Testing
    USS Meat Fucker
    USS I Blame Your Mother
    USS God Told Me To Do It
    USS Someone Else's Problem
    USS All Through With This Niceness And Negotiation Stuff
    USS Now Look What You've Made Me Do
    USS Size Isn't Everything (Defiant)
    USS We Haven't Met But You're A Great Fan Of Mine (Enterprise)
    USS Just Passing Through (Voyager)

    Gotta love those names.

    ^ Culture ship names FTW ^ :)

    Wonder what the Federation would be like if the ships' computers were like the AIs in the Culture novels...

    If we're going to bring the Culture into this it's more a case of "What would your ship name itself"...

    Well, I personally envision the Kelvin being a "Solomon Class" ship, so I drag up the names of

    USS Solomon - NCC-0500
    USS Newton - NCC-0501
    USS DaVinci - NCC-0502
    USS Cochrane - NCC-0503
    USS Socrates - NCC-0504
    USS Copernicus - NCC-0505
    USS Archimedes - NCC-0506
    USS Tesla - NCC-0507

    You get the idea. Take about twenty five to thirty ships all named after famous scientists/philosophers/wiseguys of Earth history.
