Hi Keith -

Your question took me by surprise, and before answering I had to do a little research.  You see, here in America, most of us revere Churchill as the essential man of the 20th Century.  His speeches and writings still motivate us to bring the best to our causes.  He's an endless source of wit and wisdom then, and with an American mother, we can claim him as - almost - one of ours.

Now, many Aussies would agree with this estimation of Churchill, taking him on the balance as a leader for the ages.  It's, I think, a fair reading of history.  However, I do know that some in your country hold some resentment toward him over Singapore or earlier, Gallipoli.  I think that view is revisionist, and unfair to place the blame on Churchill for them. But one can make the argument.  So, we have sort of a regional disagreement here. 

The larger context is that Churchill is motivating TO US, just as the man you choose as the namesake of your lodge should be meaningful to YOU.  There are many heroes to honor by naming a lodge after them.  Pick yours, and have a go at a really useful type of affinity lodge.
