Looking back through rocket magazines, most every name you can think of likely has already been used. These are ones I'll use on RSO cards:
Faster Faster
Premature Eject-ulation
Open Up Wide
Get It On
Makin Bacon
Time for a Quickie? (1/2 second burn time)
OMG That thing is Huge
Good Girth (short/fat rocket)
Mattress Mambo
Got a Light?
OK-But First Coffee
Nice Ash ( cigar themed rocket)

I guess I should add that the three above are just things I thought of, not things I've built. (Well, I built and flew a rocket called Grand Daddy; it was a 29 mm upgraded Big Daddy, not an upscale.)

I've really not thought about it much but my Space Shot scaled rocket could be named "Serendipity!"
Space shot was launched at 11:11, my 6YO was born at 11:11, and my kit is No. 11.
Now maybe if Tri Cities does get to launch in March I'll have to try for my Level 2 using that rocket and launch it at 11:11.

It sounds like simply "11" would be a good name. Or "elvensies". Or "Armistice" if you can somehow pull off the 11/11, 11:11 launch.

My L3 rocket was "Endinning"

A portmanteau derived from Winston Churchill's famous 1942 statement, "it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

My nephew name is David. Built a Bic pen rocket. Copied a tattoo he has and printed it on the rocket. "David's Ink".

I've been meaning to create a custom decal for the "Big Purple Rocket" that says "大きい紫ロケット" or "Big Purple Rocket." But, well, other things keep getting in the way.
