Not included in the poll, and rightly so, but does anyone else remember Aelred Glidden's Age of Fighting Sail AAR's in MWAN? The British fleet included HMS Incontinent, Insufferable and such, while the French Fleet included de Maintenon, de Montespan and so forth--every vessel in a fairly substantial force named after a royal mistress, and he only used two reigns!

I stumbled across a reference to the HMS Pickle yesterday. This got me thinking (DANGER!): what are the silliest names given to actual ships?
