Can’t contain any numbers
Cannot begin or end with space
Cannot use specific special characters and symbols
Name must not be longer than 20 characters
Once you’ve named your Sea of Thieves ship, the game will approve of it if you followed the rules above. After approval, you’ll purchase the ship with the name you’ve provided. Other players who enters your ship will be able to see the name you’ve given it because it’s right above the captain’s quarters.
Duplicate names are allowed in Sea of Thieves. Your ship’s name need not be wholly unique. Due to the restriction of using numbers, this would have made it difficult for players to name their ship something if the name has already been taken. Thankfully you don’t need to worry about that.
