I should have also mentioned that the British have had some
spectacular failures at naming vehicles.

One example of this is that the Ferret was originally called
a "Field Mouse", thankfully someone with enougth clout got
it changed before the vehicle entered service. That name
just doesn't have the right "ring" to it!
