USS Victory, both in honor of HMS Victory and the fact there is no better name for a ship that takes part in combat.
I'll consider the name a kind of a jinx. Don't say it aloud, or it won't happen!
The French and Spanish at the Battle of Trafalgar would tend to disagree with you. Plus I think it would have an effect on opposing ships.

Science officer: New ship coming in the sector, it looks well armed. Name coming through as USS Victory.

Captain: Shit!
