The reason I believe that John Blake wasn't named Dick Grayson or Tim Drake or anyone like that is because it's impossible, with the internet and buzz, to keep his identity Robin as a secret before the film's release (*ahem, John Harrison, ahem*) before it comes out.
The other reason is that John Blake becomes the next BATMAN, not some version of Robin.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
