When some you name your ships, are you trying to invoke something? Or just asthetics?

Most of my ships have their names derived from Mobile Suits or ships of the line.
A few examples (cba to list all 40 or so ships I have):
* Escort carrier U.S.S. Argama. Named from the ship used in Zeta gundam, the Argama launches its fighters, but is far from defenceless on its own.
* Odyssey class U.S.S. Dendrobium. Named from the combination of the Stamen and Orchis, the Dendrobium evokes the irresistable force that the Gundam Dendrobium embodies.
* Atrox class Ra Cailum. Named to evoke the leadership role that the originator had in Char's Counterattack.
*Prometheus class U.S.S. Trombe (*ahem* thats
), named as an embodiment of the meme Trombe! override. Many an alpha strike have been shrugged off, ambushers killed before any serious damage done, generally a badass ship in the hands of my tac captain. She was mothballed when the Armitage launched
