Doesn't Legio refer to an army and not a fleet?

According to this webpage http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_navy the proper name for our Romulan fleet should be Classis TrekBBS.
Yes, a Legio, or Legion were heavy infantry troops, and usually had a cavalry unit attached. They numbered up to 5,000 men, and are comparable to current day army brigades.

The think we need to consider is did the Romulans use the term, and for what.
