Sweet Cersei, Brave Joffrey, Lady Joanna, Lioness, Queen Margaery, Golden Rose, Lord Renly, Lady Olenna, and Princess Myrcella
Cersei lets on that the last five names were chosen by Tommen. I was struck by the fact that one of Tommen' ships is names Lord Renly! Isn't that like naming one of his ships "The Young Wolf" or "Lord Robb"? Why would the Lannisters allow that?

Seems more like Loras' idea to name it that (via Margaery)

I think the names are Margaery's idea and point to the increasing influence of the Tyrells in KL. I find it interesting that Margaery chose to name a ship after her grandmother (and not any of the other Tyrells). Another clue that Margaery and Olenna are much closer than the books let on.
Another thing I found interesting was that Margaery gets a "Queen" before her name, while Cersei only gets "Sweet"

I definitely wouldn't put it past GRRM to include a little bit of foreshadowing like this.

And I too detect Loras's influence behind the decision to choose it.

Along with the Tyrells' influence (it's easy for me to imagine Tommen wanting to please his hero Loras by naming a dromond after Loras' best friend), I like to believe that Renly was friendly to Tommen. (Tommen was no doubt closer to his uncle Tyrion, but I wonder if the kid's fondness has been greatly diminished now that Tyrion is wanted for Joffrey's murder). Renly is an amiable fellow by nature, so I see no reason why he would be mean or indifferent to his nephew Tommen, who's actually nice.
