Help (Legally) Rename My Baglah And Win Some Stuff!

Short version: In this thread, post suggestions for a custom rename of my baghlah, painted black and green, currently named Gross Salmon. Submissions should be valid according to the current rules on the subject (see http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Official:Services#Ship_Renaming_Rules) and not already be taken on Midnight. I will arbitrarily choose a winner and use that entry, in part, in full, or not at all in actually renaming my ship. The winner will receive some arbitrary prizes, including, but not limited to, PoE and arbitrary trinkets. Other entries may also receive prizes.

The contest will remain open for as long as I feel like it! (I'll edit this post when it is no longer).

Slightly Extended version: So apparently Borg is not a English word other than a proper noun, and so I am not allowed to have a Borg Sphere to go along with my Borg Cube. (Everything was so much easier in the good old days.) Switching Sci-Fi franchises, Daedalus was also not allowed. Since it names an OM and is definitely only a proper noun, I'm not even going to try Prometheus. Since I'm out of inspiration, I'm turning to you, avid forum-goers and sometimes-nerds, out of desperation. So, I'm arbitrarily offering up arbitrary prizes, because I feel like it.

I will hurt anyone who suggests Galactica.

Re: Help (Legally) Rename My Baglah And Win Some Stuff!

I will suggest a fish name:

Bowfin - This fish got color of black and green on its body.

Striped (Bass) - Same thing ^^^

and Finally My favorite fish is Tarpon. :P

For Adj,

Loudly
Fat
Ugly
Pretty
Black or Green

Sorry I'm not really good for idea on Adj but I had lot of fish names to pick if you need more choices.

Re: Help (Legally) Rename My Baglah And Win Some Stuff!

Baghlah means mule (feminine) in Arabic. It was basically a cargo vessel but pirates did use it. I think it says something like that on YPPedia. Maybe you could name it playing off its History.

Something like

Deep Sea Bengal (as it's from that area and it's also tiger)
Deep Sea Mule (lol)

or

Dark Seaweed
Widow Maker
Sudden Death
Night Rambler
Apocalypso
Unreel
Ship Happens would be funny, but not sure if they would ok it.
Cruise Missile

If these didn't help, best of luck with the rename.

Arcas: Arcas was the individual who was supposed to have been served to Zeus as a test of the god's divinity, but he managed to escape. Even one of the synonyms for bear used by the Greeks, bee-wolf (for the bear's love of honey), managed to make it into legend.

Re: Help (Legally) Rename My Baglah And Win Some Stuff!

Unfortunately, Voyager is taken on Cerulean :( That would have been the winning entry, oh yeah, and this is now over, because, meh. I might still pick a winner though, if I feel like it.
