Default Lyon's Pride - Fallout 3 connection?

i just noticed that The Tower and The Hive series has Lyon's Pride, which is also exactly the name of a elite squad in the game fallout 3. Has anyone heard of any inspirations or anything?

No. Lots of people could think of playing on the phrase lion's pride without being inspired by each other...

Including the caterers/bakers J. Lyons who not only used 'Lyon's Pride' as a sales slogan also used 'Lyons Maid'

I've also come across a ship in a book Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Devil in the Sky.
Dragonriders of Pern Ramoth's Revenge, I :LOL: and or in my case paperback, then Audio.

Since no-one's mentioned it --- "pride" is the collective noun for a family group of lions, as in "a pride of lions". So if someone called Lyon has a family, Lyon's Pride is a tempting pun.
