It appears that the rename is only temporary, and in future you could only name your ship once (though, my guess is that you could purchase a rename token).
I think CIG has already actually state that the "rename option" will be limited in the future, they just need to figure how, and that is a mess since it need to work for both real money purchased ships (visible in "myhangar) and in-game purchased ship (NOT listed in my hangar)....
They also state that in-game purchased ship won't be namable untill later in the game... very very later...

Anyone gonna be going for a specific convention? I'm planning on ripping off the UNSC from Halo - essentially, using Song/ Poem names.
Will update with what I go for when i manage to get mine secured :P
I'll second the idea of using "TSS" as a prefix, this should also save me some headhacke for duplicated names.... hopefully.

I named my MSR TSS Inquisitive Manta Ray, because it's gonna snoop around for data and flappy off into the ocean of space...looking like a Manta Ray.
Hmmm interesting conincidence.... one of my option for the MSR will be "Stingray"...

I was only planning on having the TEST prefix when I was Doing As Montoya Needs and being blank the rest of the time. If you can only have the name change a handful of times.... I'll just need to duplicate all my ships, one for TEST business and the other for everything else :-D

I will probably put it on my Polaris and Javelin, and then as a get out of jail card on my other ships if I come up with a duplicate.

I'm in the second wave, ugh! :thump:

IMHO I expect UEESS (United Empire of Earth Star Ship) prefix will be in the ban list and added by default.

I'll avoid that name... last one doesn't end up well.

I admin it will be a great one for an Endavor...

I suspect many novel names have not been snapped up yet, after the initial frenzy, there are many names available. Since not even all ship types are eligible for naming, you will still have ample opportunities to claim your favorites.

I need a name for my Aurora. It's seen so much.
