The USS Columbia is SSN 771

Yet the proposed first SSBN is also scheduled to be named:

COLUMBIA (SSBN 826) BALLISTIC MISSILE SUBMARINE (NUCLEAR POWERED) according to a Navy Web site. 

How did they arrive at the number.  The latest naming I have is that the Utah is SSN 801

100 number jump for SSBNs  726 for first Ohio Class to 826 for Columbia Class.  Don't know if I like the way numbers and names work, but don't want to open that can of worms here either.  It may not be kosher, but there it is.Ermm

The fast boat is named for a city.
 
The Ohio Replacements are named for the District...  I guess, technically still a 'State Name."
 
The 826 was chosen specifically because it was 100 up from OHIO.
Thanks,
Curt

Virginia Class fast attack submarines are named for States
Los Angeles Class were named for cities

Beyond Columbia, it is not clear what the new SSBNs will be named for.

And Holland,  thus starting the tradition of naming our boats for whomever/whatever we wished.  First bunch included arachnids, mammals, a  type of shoe, a weapon with a long handle and a pointed end, and a whole bunch that had only letters and numbers; then when we started naming them again for things we used the pointy thing again, a furry critter and a greek ships crew. We have named them for famous Americans, not so famous Americans and folks who fought against America and some who weren't ever Americans.  We named one for two different people, one for two different cities one for a live president and one for a dead admiral (twice).  But folks they are still manned by special people who take pride in their boat, whatever the name.

OK, I'm done.
