My ships are all named after ships from the Royal Navy. When choosing specific names I name my Cruisers after Battleships and Ships of the Line, my Escorts are named after Cruisers, Destroyers and Frigates while my Science Vessels are named after Survey Ships.
Currently my characters are flying around in USS Temeraire (named for a 98-gun second-rate from the Napoleonic War), USS Diomede (named for a WW1 cruiser) and USS Beagle (named for a 10-gun sloop used as a survey ship and most famously carrying Darwin).
