The same thing happened when Sisko took command of the Sao Paulo and had permission to change the name to Defiant.
That was so dumb though. Totally unnecessary. And I like the name Sao Paulo more than Defiant.
Aside from the residents of Sao Paulo, you're probably in the minority that do.

But renaming the ship the Defiant was both a morale-raising move for Starfleet forces as well as a message (i.e., raised middle finger) to the Dominion, IMO.
I don't know. The Dominion was 1 for 1 against ships named Defiant.

It might have been a morale booster for the bad guys as much as the good guys
