List of combined adjectives and concepts (600)

I got inspired by the British cold war "Rainbow Codes" and Ian Banks "Culture", so I compiled two lists: One with descriptive adjectives and feelings, and another with general and philosophical concepts.   Randomized and combined they give names like:
  • Engaged Bravery
  • Difficult Service
  • Troubling Technology
  • Abnormal Problem
  • Huge Identity

List of combined adjectives and animals (600)

I wanted something in a slightly different tone, so I combined two lists again: One with descriptive adjectives and feelings, and another with animals.   Randomized and combined they give names like:
  • Horrified Turtle
  • Friendly Whale
  • Furious Mink
  • Average Starling
  • Beaming Wombat
Only a lucky commander gets a ship named as glorious as the 'Brave Hawk' or 'Inspiring Badger'.   He is far more likely to get something like the 'Gloomy Pony' or 'Average Hamster'.

Noticed a dearth of Polynesian themes, so here's a list of Hawaiian Ali'i nui (chiefs, kings) from the pre-unification up to Kamehameha I.

A list of names either pulled from or inspired by the ship naming screen in Helldivers 2, with some of the more universe-specific (ie "Super Earth") and satirical (ie "Elected Representative of Family Values") names removed. All names are in the format "X of Y", with 7150 total combinations from 130 "X" and 55 "Y" phrases. Examples include:
  • Master of Law
  • Blade of the People
  • Titan of Audacity
  • Wings of Redemption
  • Queen of the Stars
Not all the combinations sound as cool (ie "Patriot of Patriotism"), but most are pretty good, and there are plenty to re-roll.
