Actually, Normandy is an American name.  We have a tradition of naming
our ships after our battles--see the USS Bunker Hill, etc.  And I can
name a couple of US divisions with a battle honor reading "Normandy" on
their colors--mine, for one.

I'm considering doing up something like this.  I run into a couple of
problems--the primary one being that I believe I have seriously
underestimated the number of escorts and cruisers in the NRE fleet,
and/or overestimated the number of capitals.  I'm going to sit down,
print yours out, break it out by ship class, subtract 25%, and redo my
fleet list based on that.  :)  How's that for imitation being the
sincerest compliment?  I also have to divvy it out based on the four
fleets. . . Anyway.
