The name Agamemnon, pronounced aga-mem-non, is inspired from the British warship, HMS Agamemnon (1781), a 64-gun third-rate ship of the line of the British Royal Navy. A ship the future Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson' captained and also known as his favourite ship. The HMS Agamemnon was built and launched at Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River in 1781, surrounded by the picturesque New Forest, outside Southampton, UK, a lovely area worth a visit!
