Since the design reminds me a bit of the Spruce Goose, how about the name Hughes or Hercules (the designation of Hughes' prototype was the Hughes H-4 Hercules.)?
I looked at the spruce goose and I can see the resemblance, with the new secondary Hull. SO, The ship's class name will be called the Hughes Class.

Wow this thing is really starting to mesh (pun not intended). I'm actually more reminded of a mix between an Akira and Decatur, myself. I am REALLY liking this design the more I see of it. It has the elegance of traditional Starfleet design and the look of strength that the Vengeance had without being boxy and overpowering.
