How do they name navy ships?

How do they name navy ships?

Names for Navy ships traditionally have been chosen and announced by the Secretary of the Navy, under the direction of the President and in accordance with rules prescribed by Congress. Virginia (SSN-774) class attack submarines are being named for states. Aircraft carriers are generally named for past U.S. Presidents.

Can two ships have the same name?

Yes, several boats can use the same name because watercrafts are identified by hull number. In the U.S., UK, and many other countries, several boats can use the same name even if they are the same model. However, the rules defer in some countries.
