Basically, I am gathering a whole bunch of fleet class names.

Ascending Order, Smallest to Largest

List 1 (Based on 'generic' terms)
Code:
Frigate
Destroyer
Cruiser
Battlecruiser
Battleship
Dreadnought

Transport
Freighter
Barge

Carrier


List 2 (based on heavier feeling names):
Code:
Skiff
Gunboat
Blastboat
Ironclad
Monitor
Juggernaut
Behemoth
Titan

Tanker
Junker
Hauler


List 3 (based on age of sail ships):
Code:
Galley
Sloop
Ketch
Cutter
Brigantine
Caravel
Carrack
Barque
Galleon


List 4 (based on more futuristic sounding names):
Code:
Shuttle
Runabout
Pinnace
Corvette
Corsair

Dropship
Mothership


List 5 (Stellar Constructions)
Code:
Satellite
Platform
Outpost
Space Station
Starbase
Stellar Fortress
Ringworld


Objections about size listing is also welcome. When submitting a ship size, please include size.

Please refrain from submitting:
Wikipedia pages. I've been there, and selected the ones I think make sense.
Anything that simply adds another word (e.g. Supertanker) or phrase to an existing name.
Giant lists
Multi-word names

Ship class "modifiers" (e.g. Assault Destroyer, Heavy Barge)
Code:
Advanced
Heavy
Light
Assault
Stealth
Armored
Recon
Auxiliary

Pirate
Privateer
Corporate
Merchant
Rogue
Fleet
Marauder

Missile
Torpedo
Rocket
Siege
Electronic Warfare
Escort
Patrol
Scout
Tactical
Attack
Support
Strike
Bombardment
Anti-Planet
Anti-Capital


Please refrain from submitting:
Specific name "modifiers" - e.g. Destroyer Escort
Anything containing "super" or "ultra"
Improperly spelled words

Your assistance in helping me is appreciated to the highest degree.

Titan and Behemoth can both work as Ship Sizes. Also, Gunboat.

For modifiers, one I'm fond of is "Anti-Capital", used to specify ships that are designed for the explicit purpose of destroying Capital Ships.

Ah, don't really need ship sizes right now, but I'll make note of 'Titan' and 'Behemoth'. I created a second list for ship class names that don't fit in well with the other ships, to add more variety.

I'm in dire need of ship types around destroyer size.
