This question already has an answer here:
Has Lucas ever given any reason to think the name "Millennium Falcon" is an indirect reference to US military aviation FALCON codes?
Note that religion is a common StarWars subtext, and the Millennium Falcon is often trying to escape the "Father".
Also, I could have sworn I remember Han saying "Cool it" at some point but I can't find any proof of that.
Somewhat related to Why is it called the Millennium Falcon? but that seems to be asking for a in-universe answer, whereas I want a behind-the-scenes answer.
