Here are a few of my naming themes I've used / come up with:

Baby Blue and Fuchsia (Seamoths) (Sinfest)
Alvin, Simon, and Theodore (Seamoth, Prawn, Cyclops) (Alvin)
Peeper,Rock Puncher, Reefback (Seamoth, Prawn, Cyclops) (Subnautica)
Subway, Jersey Mike's, Penn Station (Seamoth, Prawn, Cyclops) (Sandwich shops)
Selene, Ze'ev, Rampion (Seamoth, Prawn, Cyclops) (The Lunar Chronicles)
Peisinoe, Aglaope, Thelxiepeia (Any order) (The sirens)
Polyphemus (Cyclops) (The Odyssey)
Actaea/Tethys (Seamoth / Cyclops) (Nereids)
Meka (PRAWN) (Overwatch)
096,513,106 (Seamoth, Prawn, Cyclops) (SCP: Containment Breach)

*Note* For some reason, the seamoth usually gets female names, the prawn gets male names, and the cyclops can go either way, but is usually male.

Post yours, if you feel like it.

    Hmm lemme give it a whirl...

    Sea glide, water bike
    Seamoth, water car
    Cyclops, water bus
    Prawn, water stilts


    Um... There's also the VOX I call Bitching Betty and Blabbering Billy. And perhaps, the escape pod... Water caravan...

    I'm a stupid person who makes stupid games and constantly self-deprecates his stupid life because he's a stupid idiot.

    Yeah, I'm a bit messed up.

    Scooty Puff = Seamoth
    Scooty Puff Sr. = Cyclops
    Scooty Lagann = Prawn (Its always reminded me of some kinda megazord or mecha or something)

    Seamoth is STALKER 02, Prawn is WARPER 01, and Cyclops is REAPER 01. All painted to resemble their namesakes. And yes, STALKER 01 was destroyed at some point. I’m gonna come up with a more original set of names for my current play through later, and I’ll add them along with some ideas for the Seatruck and Snowfox.

    Never forget Sally, Pepper, and Maria (Jacksepticeye's vehicles names)
    Life is a window. It is just a scream into the darkness, passing the time until all of you, your memories, and all of humanity slowly fade into the void that is death. As your window closes, you will know that life is just the fight against it, even though it is just a constant in life. Death is the Impending Doom, the one force that always prevails, the true entity that connects and binds us all. All problems, either big or small, amount to nothing. The one possible savior to this world and everything in it is our own universal mortality. Once we realize this, society might finally become true and pure, and all will be at peace.

    How do I undo what's done?"
