The ship was named after Rodger Wilton Young, a United States American infantryman in the US Army during World War II. This ship has the same name as the troop transport vessel TFCT Rodger Young (No. 176) that carried the protagonist and his compatriots of the Mobile Infantry in the novel and film versions of Starship Troopers, named by author Robert A. Heinlein for the same individual.
