it all depends on perspective. the 'discovery' of a new continent that the majority of the world didn't know about vs the effects that discovery had on the natives. of course would you also condemn the use of name like Persia & Kenya because of all the negative things that have happened in those places in history?

i feel countries, ships, etc are usually personified as being female, but obviously they dont have to be.

I think there are better ways to convey one's patriotism, especially considering the origins of this name.
