I guess that Carol is doing this to honour Mar-Vell?
From the article...

“Carol has an incredible respect for Mar-Vell, as a person and as an icon,” notes DeConnick. “She is hesitant to take the name because of that. The line is something like, ‘So much has been taken from him. I won't take his name.’ It's on Captain America to help her understand that Captain Marvel wasn't his name, it was his mantle. And he would have wanted her to have it."
I hate having thoughts on the top of my head. They usually jump off and commit suicide.
