I got Blenheim via the random name generator (assigned to a T3 escort, ironically enough). The plane was named for the Duke of Marlborough's (John Churchill, an ancestor of Winston Churchill) victory during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1704.

Dang it! That's the second name, then, that's also in the random generator. I had Atlanta (Cicero's from Georgia and Altanta's also a mythological figure) for a while too before I started seeing them everywhere. So much for my cleverness!

I wanted use names of famous American battles from WW2, right now. So I started with the U.S.S. Carentan then went to the U.S.S. Bastogne, next.
