The Sulaco is named after a fictional town in Joseph Conrad’s 1904 novel Nostromo (the name of which was used for the USCSS Nostromo in the original Alien). A number of other ships in the franchise are named after elements from Conrad’s works as well, including the USCSS Patna (from Alien3), the USS Verloc (from Aliens versus Predator 2), the USS Marlow (from Aliens vs. Predator) and the USS Sephora (from Aliens: Colonial Marines).
Some social sciences research into the Alien franchise’s symbology has considered it significant that Sulaco in Conrad’s Nostromo is the home of the white owners of the silver mine figuring in the book, while the Sulaco in Aliens transports soldiers to investigate unknown troubles at a corporate outpost of Weyland-Yutani and to protect the investment — drawing parallels between the corporate owners in Conrad’s work and the shadowy business entity forming a central part of the Aliens franchise.
