These are WW1 names, not very well known today and not in any way associated with the Third Reich as the names weren't used for commissioned ships. Iwouldn't have thought such names would be controversial today.

But, do we know for certain Lutjens was such an anti-nazi as said?
wore an admiral's dirk of the Imperial design and not one with a swastika.

going back to Bundesmarine ship names, the "Lutjens" class is decommisioned and actually are in the process of being scrapped, all three of them (Lutjens, Moelders & Rommel).
From now on, all Bundesmarine ships will be named after locations (cities & Bundeslaender) instead of names.
I suppose post German re-unification this is the least controversial policy,
even though there would still be some names that would be avoided, such as Altmark for example.
