The name of our vessel is The Sudden Departure.
La Muerte Barco was a close second.
My druid captain will be turning the captain's quarters into a little grove. Shallow-rooted fruit trees, berry bushes, and a vegetable garden. Ivy on the walls.

The only female member of our crew is a bard, and our leader - or at least our 'face', so we named her captain. It was decided that whenever we took a ship, if it surrendered, we would only take its cargo and its captain for ransom - ship's officers and crew would be allowed to sail on with their lives and their ship. If they fought us, there would be no quarter granted. Our hopes are that word will get out and crews might mutiny once they see us coming rather than risk life and limb.
As such, and as a wink and a nod to the ship's original name, the ship has been christened the 'Maiden's Promise'. We also started rumors during the spread of infamy that she was a maiden in fact as well as name, keeping herself for the one man who could conquer her heart.
This is a rumor that is very, very untrue. Exhaustingly untrue at times.
After much debate, we went with the Stirge.

Still working on the long Job of getting the right weapons for her
But 'The Spitfire' will be a fearsome sight when she's ready.
I was originally planning to use the name 'Harrigan's Folly' but our game got held up for about 2 months and then I saw it on here...
So it wound out be 'The Betrayal' with the Whale's skeleton as our figurehead...
My PCs named their ship Devilfish, in tribute to the tengu druid who died to one.

My player's are pitching the idea of "She's One of Ours, Sir" hoping to buy a few moments of confusion prior to battle, though they all seem to agree that the captain will have the final say...once a captain is determined.
They also tossed around "The SS F&@# You Leeches," a callback to hyjinks that unfolded in Carrion Crown, but I told them that the former "Man's Promise" is not a large wooden chest barely capable of holding three people.
I'm tempted to bring my PFS character out of retirement and have Ridgar Redhammer and "The Busty Barmaid" pay them a visit.
Hmmm. Didn't realize others had posted Harrigan's Folly as a suggestion. Did I pick it up subsconsciously from scanning the boards or is it so obvious that everyone should think of it? I didn't even notice it upthread until I reread just now. Strange how the brain works.
Do any of your captains have interesting names?
We just played through the Scourge/Plugg confrontation last week. Our swashbuckler rogue's name is Valana (no last name specified) and she's the only evil character in the game (the PCs/players don't openly know each other's alignments). She had killed two crew by that point. Though you couldn't really call either of those murder, the crew is a bit intimidated by her...and Slippery Syl Lonegan, our resident psycho killer, gets a little moist at the sight of her.
During the battle the player used a Paizo plot card that gave her weapon the viscious quality. She dealt and took a lot of damage. Afterward, Scourge was dead and Plugg was tied up. She asked the crew, "Who's with Plugg?" Only Kipper stepped forward (Patch was dead too). She stared hard at him as she stabbed Plugg through the heart (CDG). Kipper ran for the rail and jumped overboard rather than face her wrath...nobody stopped him and they watched him swim quick like dolphins to take his chances on the island.
The PCs (and, I ruled, the crew) elected her captain on the spot. With no last name (can't have her called Captain Valana) the crew have chosen to call her Captain Viscious...Valana the Viscious. I like it. May the Free Captains tremble.
