Registry meanings?

I was reading about how the registry numbers on the ships in the 2009 Trek movie all have meanings - the USS Newton NCC-1727, numbered for the year of Isaac Newton's death, the USS Kelvin NCC-0514, numbered for JJ Abrams' Uncle Kelvin's birthdate etc.

And we know the original Enterprise NCC-1701 number was modified from Gene Rodenberry's WWII plane.

Do any of the other ships in Trek have meaningful (in real life, to the show's creators if no-one else) numbers? Surely the hero ship numbers from Voyager (74656) and DS9 (USS Defiant NX-74205) aren't just strings of random digits?
