I'd encourage the list to suggest some names, it might get some traffic 
going here again.

Current Named Crusty ships:
Crusty Attack Craft (Corvette-sized), K'Knn'TK class (UNSC codename 
Crusty LIGHT CRUISER, Sss'Ka'Tk'Tk class (UNSC codename "CRAKE")
Crusty HEAVY CRUISER, Tk'ch'ch'Ksss class (UNSC codename "CUTLASS")
Crusty HEAVY BATTLESHIP Vk'ca'tk'Knn class (UNSC codename "CROWBAR")

Crusty ships that need names:
Standard Destroyer
Heavy Destroyer
Strike Cruiser
Battle Cruiser
Light Carrier

So suggests some names and codenames and if they fit a specific ship.  
After we have a good selection we can narrow them down and Jon can 
decide on an 'Official' set.

Here are a few codename suggestions
FF -  Cactus
DD - Coyote
DH - Cougar
CS - Crossbow
BC - Comet
DN - Castle
CVL - Cyclone
