Here is a weird one, I like to use the German spelling of corvette because a hull code of KK looks nice next to DDs and FFs.
Korvette  KK
Guided Missile Korvette  KKG
K was actually used for corvettes by English speaking countries in WW2 and earlier. In games like Rule the Waves, you'll see KE ships all over the place. I suspect it was to distinct it from C's which were cruisers and carriers. Weirdly, CV grew out of the early carriers being refits of cruisers. It just stuck.

ROVAG - Rapid Orbital Ground Assault Vessel is one that I definitely added myself. Basically, some troop transports are designed for work behind the frontlines, and they get a TT designation. Others are designed to airdrop say a corps of troops using drop bays, while wading through STO fire and possibly some weak defensive fleet. Those get the ROVAG designation.

I am also not sure if Laser Assault Frigate and Boarding Shuttle were already there or if I added them myself. Their names are self-explanatory.
