I need help. I’ve been typing [ship] every time I refer to Sig’s catamaran because I have no idea what it’s called. I’m *this close* to finishing the book and I’m going to turn around and work on edits very quickly so I can get it submitted as soon as possible.
So here’s where you come in.
I’ll list a few references about the ship. You guys suggest some names. If I pick one of the names to use in Lord Regret’s Price, I’ll list you in the dedication. Assuming it’s accepted for publication, I’ll also provide both an electronic and signed print copy once they’re available.
Wanna play? Here’s a few references to the ship from Lady Doctor Wyre. Remember, in Lady Wyre’s universe, the ships are referred to as he not she. ETA: You can enter as many times as you want!
In his one-of-a-kind mega catamaran built to cut through space like a hot knife through butter, he lived a life of luxury purchased by the blood of others.
“I know her well enough to comprehend that we’ll never understand her. Not fully. Oh, parties and clothes and such, yes, she’s entirely predictable. But as soon as I spend a queen’s ransom on the finest engines in the galaxy to tempt her onto my ship, she’ll throw me out on my face because she selected a colonial sheriff instead.”
“We’ll buy you a new gown.” Laughing, Gil swept her up into his arms. “This thing can fly itself, can’t it?”
“Of course.” Sig led the way toward his—their—bedchamber. “The finest technology in the galaxy at our lady’s fingertips.”

Thanks for the ideas!
I really think I want it to represent “freedom” some how. What says freedom to you?
Catamount(wild cats are super free to me)
How did I miss that one? Lol.
I’m still thinking
Some other ideas I’m kicking around:
Sis, when I hear Deliverance, all I can think is Squeal, Piggy!
*facepalm* Yeah, yeah. He sure had a pretty mouth.
Kind of like Serenity is to Firefly, you know? Not too patriotic. It’s personal to Sig and has nothing to do with Americus or even Britannia.
For now, I’m going with Oblivion. Thank you to everyone for brainstorming with me!
