As the title says. There was a thread somewhere during the past few weeks that said how to do this, but I can't find it. I even renamed 2 of the new Allied CVs. But now I can't remember how, and nothing I click on opens up any sort of menu to do this. Help, please?

Go to the editor and load your scenario. Click on the ship tab and go to work....GP

If ship name is yellow - click on it. If white - you can't rename this ship

This works for the allies, and only for the ships with the "II" at the end of their names (like "Yorktown II")
1) Open the game turn
2) Go to "i" screen
3) Ship Reinforcements
4) Pick up a ship with "II" at the end of its name, before its arrival on map
5) Open the detail of the ship
6) You can see the name in yellow color (other ships have the name in white).
7) Click on that yellow name, and rename the ship.
Done :)

Now you can have your USS Reluctant or USS Corkscrew
Ships IIRC that you can rename - based on actual ship naming in DBB:
CV Yorktown II
CV Hornet II
CV Lexington II
CV Wasp II
CV Princeton II
CA Canberra II
CA Quincy II
CA Chicago II
CA Helena II
CL Vincennes II
CL Houston II
CL Astoria II
CL Atlanta II
DM Gwin II
DD Leary II
DD Chevalier II
DD Henderson II
DD Turner II
DD Duncan II
DD Little II
DD Porter II
DD Jarvis II
DD Monssen II
DD Cushing II
DD Benham II
DD Preston II
DD Walke II
DD Laffey II
DD O' Brien II
DD De Haven II
DD Blue II
DD Strong II
DD Barton II
DD Beatty II
DD Aaron Ward II
SS Runner II
SS Argonaut II
SS Perch II
SS Shark II
SS Sealion II

Possibly these ships could be renamed too if in reinforcements queue:
TK H.M. Storey II
xAK Behar II
xAK Clan Macdougall II
xAK Fresno City II
xAK Afoundria II
xAK Azalea City II
xAK Samuel Gompers II
xAK Stephen Hopkins II

Thanks, Barb, that's a great list. I was just checking carriers last night and it was just as you said. So, at least for normal in-game mechanics, only replacements for historically sunken ships qualify.

If you edit a scenario, and give any ships a [space]II after their name, the exe recognises this and they can be changed while in the reinforcement queue. (Haven't tried it with IJN ships, though).
