I remember feeling intrigued by the idea of a ship called El Dorado, i.e. naming a starship after a fictional place. Then we got an actual space shuttle named Atlantis!

So how about Nebula-class USS Shangri-La?
I'm not sure if you're aware of it because it wasn't mentioned in the post, but USS Shangri-La CV-38 was a US aircraft carrier for almost 30 years. The name commemorated the Halsey-Doolittle Raid of 1942.
I wasn't, no. Thanks for sharing!

Mind you, I also thought of USS Halcyon, USS Asgard, USS Kunlun, USS Lothlorien and USS Elysium.

Someone earlier mentioned different winged creatures from myth in line my original ship name Hippogriff. Some others come to mind:

Harpy
Roc
Dragon
Gryphon (wasn't this used already?)
Phoenix (already used)
Seraph
Nephil
Afreet
Archangel (also a city in Russia)
Gabriel (or Jibreel)
Metronon
Azreal
Israfel
Michael
Uriel
