At random: Traditionally, United States submarines have been named after fish and other marine creatures. One exception was the Navy's first submarine HOLLAND which was named after its inventor, John Philip Holland. Today, ballistic missile submarines are named for famous American patriots, with the newest class, the OHIO class, named after states. The LOS ANGELES class of attack submarines are named for United States cities. The nations news class of submarine, the Virginia class, is also named for US States, making them the capital ships of the navy.

Getting my arse kicked from pillar to post on HMAS Stalwart (a Destroyer Tender) as the Electrical Department disciplinary problem when the Electrical Officer called me to his cabin and gave me a choice of Submarines or being buried in the hole I was digging for myself.

Needless to say 14 years in Submarines later and now 18 years of maintaining Submarines in civilian life probably means I made the right choice.
