Hoping those boats get names along with their pennant numbers...
Depends if they had names in the comics.
Why would it depend on that? We've seen many times already that the movies don't just slavishly copy the comics but frequently create their own new interpretations, storylines, and characters. They draw on the comics' ideas, but they do not depend on them exclusively.

After all, the comics are read by thousands, while the movies are seen by millions. The bitter truth is that the comics are secondary here. They're a source of ideas, but it's the movies that drive things now.
