Ships are typically built to a standard, resulting in 'class' names being assigned to whole ship types.
Class names are used to identify whole families of warships and submarines in the modern age. Each class has its own 'named' ships and typically carries the name of the 'lead ship'. For example, the Ohio-class battleship group of the World War 2 period was headed by USS Ohio and the sister ships became USS Missouri, USS New Jersey, and USS Wisconsin. This naval tradition continues today.
