Evidential evidence is compelling to your theory. Sadly from airlines that are no longer with us.

As mentioned, Pan Am continued with the Clipper tradition following the legacy of their flying boat heritage. To make your theory even more robust , CP Air’s call sign was Empress, and they named their aircraft “Empress of ….” . A tradition that goes back centuries to CP’s shipping days.

And actually icenspice, it’s probably harder to find an airline that doesn’t name its aircraft. Although probably not all that hard : )

Oh , and back on topic…..I agree with some of you. The BA names nominated for the competition are pretty B-l A-nd
My suggestion ………”Chariot”
