Does it say something about the Federation that, while the cardassians gave the station the moody name 'Terok Nor', the best that Starfleet could come up with was a generically bland sounding letter/number designation?

Mind you, I suppose that 'Terok Nor' could simply be Cardassian for "Subspace Outpost 232", or something.
Weren't all Cardassian stations named ____ Nor? Though I can only remember Empok Nor. So Nor might be an equivalent for starbase.
