What is our (current) Ships name and more importantly what is the name of the Company of which we are members, as oppossed to the name of the Rogue Trader House ( Woody's choice I beleive) that probably own the current ship.

Personally would like Damocles (for the ship) and the Company of the Quick and the Bold.

I prefer Iain M Banks' ship names:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ships_%28The_Culture%29

As for Company Name, I'd go for something more Esoteric.
Do we know hat sort of Dynasty Mr Trader is from?
Up-and-coming: Needs a vibrant name. "Dynamo". "Team Win". "Sabre", Check some PR/marketing sites!
Established: Horrific Acronym Time!* Or lawyer/accountant name: Slayer and Co., Killem Grabbit and Runn,
Old and Dying: Phoenix-based name. -Rising. -Dust. -Invictus. Breath of the -,

*White or Black? White, we get to be W.H.A.T! Smile

I think I prefer old fashioned style company names, 19th C and earlier.
e.g.

The Eastern Fringes Trading Company
The Honourable Order of Merchant Adventurers
The Imperial Koronus Expanse Exploration Company
The Calixian League of Merchant Explorers

Edit: Maybe

The Transmaw Trading Company

... and so on and so forth.

As for ship names, something Banksian sounds good though probably some of the less silly ones.

I like Andy's ideas on Company Names.
