Battleships and style differences between two great empires

During great wars of the previous century

Britain named its battleships like that :
"Invincible", "Repulse", "King .....", "Queen ......", "Lion","Indefatigable" etc
i.e. mostly abstract or by kings and queens

Germany named its battleships like that:
"Bismark", "Lutzov", "Tirpitz", "Admiral Count ....",
i.e. almost never abstract and mostly by names of great war and state leaders

Personally I prefer English style
