There was a great samurai and teacher named Miyamoto Musashi (the Japanese had a famous serial of novels in the 20s and 30s devoted to him). His name was after a famous province in Japan. Similarly, the Yamato province contained the original capital of ancient Japan. It has a special meaning for the Japanese people to this day; sometimes they call themselves the "Yamato" people (or race). Thus, in both cases, the ships were named after regions and not people.
I think to name a ship in an agressive nature eg: invincible; is asking for trouble.
