Need Names For Ships:

So I've been playing Modern Day Scenario II for Hearts of Iron 2, and I've made a lot of file changes including making it so every country can build Super Carriers, Light Carriers and Heavy Aircraft Carrying Cruisers. The problem is I have no idea what the US would name its CV Ls.

I need to fill in 10 or so class names for five CV Ls and five Heavy Aircraft Carrying Cruisers (CV As?).

I did try just copying the CVL names from the WWII era in vanilla Hearts of Iron and that currently stands at:

USS Independence, USS Princeton, USS Belleau Wood, USS Cowpens, USS Monterey, USS Langley, USS Cabot, USS Bataan, USS San Jacinto, USS Saipan, USS Wright, USS Block Island, USS Iwo Jima, USS Okinawa, USS Boxer, USS Thetis Bay, USS Guadalcanal, USS Guam, USS Tripoli, USS New Orleans, USS Tarawa, USS Nassau, USS Peleliu, USS Trenton, USS Phillipines,

The first problem is that they're all named after WWII era battles, and a few Revolutionary ones. The game starts in 2003 on the eve of the invasion of Iraq and I need some modern names to fill in the gap. The other problem is that there's a lot of overlap between those CVL names and the names for US AA Vs (those tend to be name after famous Marine Corps battles). I also need to figure out a way to sort the names between the Light Carriers and the Heavy Aircraft Carrying Cruisers.

Any help would be appreciated.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
