Name one Dreadnought class submarine "HMS Thunder Child"

One of the new Dreadnought class submarines should be named "HMS Thunder Child" in honour of H.G. Wells' hero ship from War of the Worlds. This would infuse a sense of identity and culture being influenced by the famous literature of our nation.

HMS Thunder Child is the fictional ironclad warship that destroys two Martian tripods in HG Wells' War of the Worlds before being sunk by a heat ray from a third tripod.
