Help! Well okay, this isn’t exactly a life threatening help but this is a literary FUN cry for help. How would you like to help me name the next pirate ship in Jaded Tides, today?
This ship and crew of pirates are definitely baddies. These guys are rough, gruff and do not play around. Unfortunately, this bad ass treasure hunting bucket of rum and guns is a brig. She sits about 130 feet long and has 18 gun ports.
By the way if I choose your suggestion, I’ll give you credit in my acknowledgements as well as a signed paperback for USA readers! ☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️ Ready, set…Name her!!!

I can’t believe nobody is playing. The Blarneycock has been done and it’s my favorite. I choose The Hangman’s Dance.
I know right?! Ooo that’s a good one! Thank you!

PSSST – Wanna Name a Pirate Ship AND be acknowledged in a BOOK by the author?
Thanks Chris! I appreciate the reblog! I hope all is well with you!
Everything Great here Thanks – I see you’re getting lots of Ship’s names to think about 😀
You know how much I love this stuff, right? 😉 Creating these stories and sharing in the fun of creating them is pure joy! And yes, these pirates just keep coming and coming!
Just be glad they’re Pirates and not Parrots 😀 😀 😀
The VIXEN (goes with Villainous and Sexy as in ‘she’s a Fox’)
Ooooh… as a Jack Sparrow fan this is a treat.. Black Bess (after Elizabeth 1st)… or perhaps The Kraken (they would have heard the stories at this time of this evil sea monster)

Author P.S. Bartlett is looking for some creative input…help her name a pirate ship for her latest book… release your inner Jack Sparrow…
Thanks so much for inviting so many wonderful suggestions to my blog post! ❤
My pleasure and I am sure that the combined fire power will deliver the broadside you are looking for!!
What about ‘Demon of the Sea?’
I must love this one because that is the name of one the main ship in my last book, Demons & Pearls! 🙂 Thank you!
I liked it too 🙂
Pirates are a superstitious lot, so naming a ship is considered directly related to its future fortunes. It would help to know more about the story, but looking at some historical favourites and extrapolating from there;
or if the crew like to live on the edge, the Tiamat (Chaos goddess, gives birth to monsters)
or if you prefer something indicating good fortune, there is a list of historic pirate ship names http://www.vleonica.com/ship_cap.htm
Something like The Gentleman’s Fortune or Siren of Fortune would fit into traditional format.

This is FUN!! Please help author P. S. Bartlett name a ship in her next book!
Thank you so much! I’m loving all of the responses! 🙂
Thanks for the opportunity, it IS fun!! 😀
I don’t know why but I like the sound of ‘The Cursed Corsairs’. haha
The Hatteras Hag.
The Naked Venus
Since she’s a brig, how about using the archaic word “Gaoler” in the name? A couple of possbilities: “The Bloody Gaoler ” or “The Drunken Gaoler” or “The Dancing Gaoler” or “The Thieving Gaoler” or “The Gilded Gaoler”?
I say: Widow Maker I am not sure if anyone else suggested this yet, I really didn’t want to read the others before submitting Good Luck!!!
The “Bloody Spike,” nails terror on the high seas! 💗😯
The ‘Dark Star’ – makes me think of using the skies to navigate? Might be a bit of a stretch 🙂
Oh my goodness there are so many great ones to choose from! I think I’m going to have to hold a vote over on my Razor’s Adventures Facebook page to help me! I’ll gather all of these suggestions up this evening and put up a link to the vote!
Thank you all SO much! This has been so much fun!:)
The Black Dahlia or Mata Hari are good ones, if you’re still taking ideas!
I’ll be taking them up until this evening so thank you! 🙂
Angel of Death
Bird of Prey
Kiss of Death
OK… must stop! 😀
These are fantastic!!!! Thank you!
I think I like Crimson Tide the best – partly because of the blood on the water reference and partly because I love the word ‘crimson.’ 😀
Oh what fun. Love this. You might want to try a pirate ship name generator. Yes, there really is one! Here’s the link – http://www.seventhsanctum.com/generate.php?Genname=pirateshipnamer
Can’t wait to hear what you decide 😀
Awesome!!!! Thank you!!
As a twist on Demon of the Sea, how about The Sea Demon?
Well she has 18 holes and bad ass galore
Whore of eighteen
Hmmm…maybe not lol 😉 Thanks though!
I bet badass pirates would not think like your American housewife when it comes to morale.
Have no fear, my books are written by me, so hopefully the American housewives who read them are getting a good hard dose of pirate moral. 😉
– Red Dragon
– Blood Diamond
– The Demon Lady
– Death Hunter
Love it! Thanks!
