I was wondering who decides what a new ship gets called / the theme of a class

I was reading about British Monitors and saw we almost had an HMS Stonewall Jackson and HMS General Grant if the americans hadn't objected.

there have been some unusal names over the Years HMS Myrmidon, HMS Blonde HMS Flirt, HMS Dapper ,HMS Fancy HMS Griper

Dreadnought
