I was wondering this... The White Star Line has some excusable names, like the Baltic and Adriatic are both seas, Titanic means big, Britannic is a patriotic name, etc. But where does Cunard get its names? Queen Mary/Queen Elizabeth are understandable; they're kind of obvious, but names like the Lusitania, Mauretania, Carpathia, Caronia? Where did they think of these strange names?
