I can definitely see Paul Cooper's influence here with both vehicles having stella(r) names, a clever link with the company's official name.  I remember identification of coaches by name being a theme during his time with Premier Travel whilst it was under Cambus ownership.

Were those the names like "Norseman", "Fenman", "Endeavour" and "Columbus" that I have seen on some of the last coaches PT bought?

They were indeed. Other names used were names of the great winds. The N***NVA National Express vehicles were name in a spirit of series i.e Spirit of Kings Lynn etc.
