Not sure about the morphing of Perseverance to Percy. For me the rovers, like ships, have all been female and Perseverance's role is a gatherer, traditionally a female role.


The Royal Navy has had many 'platitudinous noble quality' ships, but I'm not finding much info on nicknames.

It's interesting that two notable USN ships in this vein -- Enterprise and Intrepid, got the nicknames 'Big E' and 'Fighting I.'

'Nuclear P' would be a fun one. laugh.gif
