True - the development code name for the engine was Hellcat - and they liked it so much - it stuck for the car name.....

One theory: 

...why Dodge chose the Hellcat name...

...it appears the engine is actually named after a Grumman World War II fighter plane that had its engines build by Nash.
The now defunct company later joined Hudson to form AMC (American Motors), which Chrysler acquired in 1987. http://www.topspeed.com/cars/dodge/2015-dodge-challenger-srt-hellcat-ar161904.html
