  • Isn't Electric Boat Company the common name? 132.205.44.134 23:57, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Except that this is a corporate name, and in those cases, the tendency is to use the firm's actual name, sans "Inc," "Corp," "Plc," "Co," etc. (except for firms where that is part of common usage, such as Onex Corporation. —Joseph/N328KF (Talk)Joseph/N328KF (Talk) 06:19, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
    • BTW, there are 53,000 Google matches for the exact phrase (in quotes) "General Dynamics Electric Boat." Certainly gets used frequently enough. —Joseph/N328KF (Talk) 07:45, 15 January 2007 (UTC)
