I always thought that Hood was a fine name.

Of course, just like the US, Britain has named carriers after carriers that sunk. They had Ark Royal. We had a Yorktown, Hornet, Lexington

Also a HMS Invincible fought at the Falklands 1982, after a previous HMS Invincible was sunk at Jutland in 1916, after it fought at the Falklands 1914, where is sunk the German cruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau

And Germany named a couple of later ships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau
