I used the name of an actual pirate ship for mine, The Queen Anne's Revenge. (Blackbeard's ship, but I'm sure you already knew that!) I'm with you about keeping Disney themed things out of my pirate displays. I try to keep an air of pseudo-authenticity, as if these old salts really might have lurched up out of a hidden cove, or risen from a sunken brig. The Hispaniola was the ship from "Treasure Island", so that's not a bad one, either. Let us know what you choose!

Good ideas so far. I too find real names more cooler/creepier than descriptive stuff and if that were mine I would incorporate names of relatives. IE My Grandmother's first and middle name is Charlotte Mae...

Another options is some local significance. I live in Erie County Ohio and the name comes from the Native Indians that settled here. SNIPPED FROM A LOCAL HISTORY SITE: Erie is a short form of the Iroquian word "Erielhonan" meaning literally "long tail"" and referring to the panther (cougar or mountain lion). Hence their French name was Nation du Chat (cat nation). Their other Iroquoian names - Awenrehronon and Rhilerrhonon (Rhierrhonon) - carry the same meaning, although the Huron muddied the situation by using Yenresh (panther people) for both the Erie and Neutrals. Other names which seem to have been used for the Erie were: Atirhagenret, Chat (French), Gaquagaono, Kahqua (Kahkwa) (Seneca), Rhagenratka, and Black Mingua (Dutch).

Rhagenratka sounds cool to me (rat) but Erielhonan could work too. If someone would come up to me and know that... They would get a beer!
How about Scallywags Revenge

What's your last name start with? Or a pet/kid name? I always like incorporating something personal in there sometimes...

I do like the ones you came up with tho and they sound like a decent Pirate ship name.

Oh! What about incorporating a Halloween angle?

The Flying Pumpkin

The Wailing or Whispering Witch

The Bony Ghost
Davey's Last Chance
