I prepared an expanded list of random ship names for VC Balance Mod 13, and thought some players (vanilla or modded) might find the list useful for naming their own custom ships.

Each name is in old norse, with the english translation after the # to the right. All are either historical or mythological ship names from the Viking Age, or are constructed according to the types of kennings the Norse used in naming ships. You might recognize some of the first 23 names from vanilla VC, though some of those have been changed to correct historical anachronisms, mainly, removing the names taken from later Christianized Norse, like "Langfredag" (Good Friday), "Kristsud" (Christ), "Mariusud" (The Virgin Mary), etc.
