(The flagship of the victorious British fleet: the battlecruiser HMS ''Invincible''). It came to grief in the battle of the River Plate in the South Atlantic in the first year of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.

* Speaking of unsinkable ships and World War II, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_battleship_Kong%C5%8D Japanese battleship Kongō]], while named after a mountain, literally translates as "indestructible". It was the only battleship sunk by a submarine in the war, and the last in history.

* Just to complete the picture of sea-going bodies being particularly prone to this, the head of the US Fleet was initially known as Commander-in-Chief, U. S. Fleet or... CINCUS. If you can't see the problem, try saying it out loud. The issue was recognised (the Navy tried to insist it should be pronounced 'kinkus') but it was brushed off. the Pearl Harbor happened. And suddenly it seemed rather grotesque. The name was changed shortly thereafter.
