Feels like naming coincidence, particularly given that the GCHQ
analogue is named similarly. From The Guardian:
"The NSA's codeword for its decryption program, Bullrun, is taken from
a major battle of the American civil war. Its British counterpart,
Edgehill, is named after the first major engagement of the English
civil war, more than 200 years earlier."
