I know there are pilot callsigns, but the addition of unit names would be nice. In the fiction, many 'Mechs had their own name beyond the pilot's callsign e.g. Banockburn. Also, DropShips, JumpShips, and WarShips should be able to be named.

    Mechs with custom "Names" are also custom variants for a single pilot. And we already support this by allowing you to add it when you customize the mech in the MekLab.

    That would just be fluff information. Name them in the TO&E tab or in the individual unit history file (in the hangar tab). Plenty of places to add a name.

    Unless someone else plans to tackle this, I think it can be considered closed. Unique names can be given for customs or noted in the TO&E or the Unit's biography.

    It doesn't remove the 1, 2, 3, etc... but otherwise yes.

    Would it be possible to check for a fluff name before assigning a number?

    Yes, I can do that. When I sit down at the code next I will.
