Question for anyone out there who can answer this.
I need a naming scheme for some ficticious British auxiliaries. Basically I'm creating a class of auxiliaries which can be converted into each other or CVLs. I have a similar series of US ships I'm calling the "Bay" class, named after bays in the US. I need a naming convention for the British auxiliaries which isn't used by any other ships and which I could derive a good 50-100 names from. Basically the series would consist of AO, AS, AD, AV, AR and CVL versions. Here's a pic of what I'm talking about:
Currently UK auxiliaries carry a 'Fort' name, a "***leaf", or "Wave' name
Here's the list from Haze Grey and Underway: http://hazegray.org/
Fort Victoria, Fort George, Fort Rosalie, Fort Austin, Oakleaf, Brambleleaf, Bayleaf, Orangeleaf, Wave Knight, Wave Ruler, Grey Rover, Gold Rover, and Black Rover
The naming convention is probably the same as it was during WWII (I know I've seen a 'Fort' named UK ship in the game).
