Origin of the name "Lucania"

Lucania was named by the Duke of Abruzzi, as he stood on the summit of Mount Saint Elias on July 31, 1897, having just completed the first ascent. Seeing Lucania in the far distance, beyond Mount Logan, he immediately named it "after the ship on which the expedition had sailed from Liverpool to New York, the RMS Lucania". See Dave Roberts, "Escape from Lucania", Simon & Schuster, 2002.
