Naming Conventions of His Imperial Majesty’s Fleet
  
This catalogue of ships commissioned or warranted under the authority of the Imperial Navy of the Holy Orenian Empire shall serve as a comprehensive list of all vessels outfitted for combat duty registered under the flag of the Empire. Any ship or crew not listed here flying under the Imperial Ensign shall be considered fraudulent.
 
Along with this catalogue, the following are listed as required naming conventions for ships of the Imperial Navy, to be christened as a warship in the Emperor’s Service:

A warship must not be named after a living person, except in the cases of members of the Imperial Family.


I. A warship’s name must only be re-used in the event of its predecessor’s destruction after being rewarded with battle honors.
II. Any ship classified as a Ship of the Line or Great Frigate shall be named after members of the Imperial Family.
III. Any ship classified as a Frigate shall be named after a notable Imperial Statesman, Peers, or Knights.
IV. Any ship classified as a Post-ship, or Light Frigate, shall be named after a notable Imperial town, city, or village.
V. Any ship classified as a Sloop-of-War or Sloop shall be named after desirable traits.
VI. Any ship classified as a Brig, Schooner or Cutter shall be named after a form of wildlife or mythical creature, with an optional adjective.
VIII. Any ship unclassified or unrated shall be named, in good taste, requiring approval upon warrant or commission.
