I believe the name Enterprise is British in origin (as a name for a ship) or possibly French. Dating back to the early 1700s, a U.S ship didn't bear the name until much later. British ships bearing this name have never been of a significance ie Battleship, they have been sloops a Central Battery Ironclad or its biggest incarnation a Light Cruiser, Laid down on 28 June 1918 and decommissioned 13 January 1946.The current HMS Enterprise is a multi-role survey vessel.
Personally i'm not keen on the name Enterprise but I like the following:
German; Von Der Tann and Moltke.
British; Indefatigable; Vanguard; Dreadnaught, Resolution; Iron Duke; Conquerer;; and Duke of York.
