Cruisers Blenheim & Black Prince (victor at Poitiers) , battleships Marlborough & Barham.Only adds to the appeal...
No worse than Cressy, Aboukir or Ramilles, and not forgetting HMS Lord Nelson, Collingwood, St Vincent ... and the Fleet flagship Iron Duke.
To be fair, there was some evidence of tact. The next ship of the very best name wasn't completed until 1945.
Temeraire & Bellerophon names in RN came from original French prizes.
Edited so we didn't name a super-dreadnought after a railway junction in Sussex!
