Tips for Couple Ship Names

Here are a few tips for finding the perfect relationship name:

  1. Pick a name with a ring to it – as you say the names created by the ship name generator, you’ll see that one or two have a ring to them. Star them to save them to your list, and then narrow them down to the best-sounding name.
  2. Use names where letters are shared – you’ll often find merging names where they have shared letters make an excellent couple name. For example, Ben and Jennifer share an ‘en,’ Bill and Hillary both share ‘ill,’ and Zac and Vanessa share an ‘a’ as their second letter.
  3. Try last names and first names – you can get even more great ideas by using last names as well as first names or even a combination of the two. Look for similar letters and sounds to decide what to try combining.
  4. Try nicknames – If you’re not finding a great option with standard names, does either partner have a nickname or a shortened version of their name to try (e.g., James vs Jim or Jimmy)?
