Default Next US Spacecraft Name?

I won't try a poll with this one, but I would like to see, when and if another major Manned Spacecraft flies, whatever the program is called, Aries...whatever, the first ship designated as "Enterprise".

I feel that somehow it was a cheat that the test shuttle with that name never got to fly. It was eventually supposed to, I think, but it would have cost too much to convert for spaceflight from atmospheric testing.

How do the rest of you feel about it? Other than it messing with the currently known ships past and future, designated with the name.

I apply the name toward a US ship, as it would seem unlikely that a Chinese, or Russian ship would take on such a British/American name for one of their own, though if someone gave the Russian space program enough Rubles, they might get a Soyuz named so. Which would be OK, as not all Spaceships in the future are "American", I realize. But for now it would be nice to see a ship named so.

Well, if the US pays for the thing it seems reasonable they get to name it!

Yea, but I would like to see one named for this forums "Flagship" vessel instead of having some unfamiliar name created by a national agency.
