According to Wikipedia, Myron E. Scott, creator of the All-American Soap Box Derby (of which Chevrolet was a sponsor) is credited with naming  the Corvette.  Scott at one time worked for Chevrolet, who wanted a non-animal name starting with “C” for the sports car in 1953.  Scott chose the name of a fast ship, the corvette.
