Fighters should be called Stymphalians or Stymphs for short.

I like that name! I wonder if the Hellenic Air Force has ever used it. I know they've always flown British, Canadian, and American aircraft, but perhaps they didn't use the names Spitfire or Sabre or Eagle. Perhaps they used the name Stymphalians.

Awesome. I was thinking of giving the fighters names of Greek heroes, like Agamemnon or Ulysses, while shuttles would be named Aristotle or Euripides.

We don't often refer to our fighters in name other than Wolf and Raven squadron, but when we do its Huginn, Muninn,Geri, Freki and sometimes Sleipnir

If you ever have the need for 2 carriers worth of fighters, you could have Odin and Loki squadrons, with the first 4 of yours being in Odin, with Sleipnir joining Jormungand, Fenrir, and Hel on Loki.
