The Dutch used to prize their neutrality, until the Nazis came in and killed over two hundred thousand of them.  After that, they decided to take sides.  They jumped into The War real fast, and De Zeven Provinciën was one of the first to come.  That was a real mouthful of a name though, so she picked Zoe.  I always thought it was a good choice in a name.  It means life.  She worked to give her crew a good life, not just a good time.  I appreciated the difference.
