If more than one gets rung, presumably the peal that finishes first
gets the name, and the others enter into correspondance with the CC
Methods Committee to pick alternative names, with all sorts of silly
possibilities like "Nelson's Ship", "Nelson's Viktory", "Nelson's
Victorie" or "Villeneuve's Defeat"?
