Nostalgically named after one of my favourite (if buggy and sometimes poorly designed) adventure games, 'Codename: ICEMAN' by Sierra. The game in general was modelled after the movies 'The Hunt for Red October' and 'Navy SEALs'. In it, you play US Navy Lt. Commander John Westland, assigned as Executive Officer to the nuclear submarine U.S.S. Blackhawk.
Always thought it was a good name.
