There's no particular reason that the Enterprise couldn't have been completed first if the Galaxy was delayed during construction. For that matter, there's no reason there would have to be a USS Galaxy at all - there' a long history of classes that aren't named after the first ship.
That seems to have been the case in the twenty third century, but by the time Picard was commanding the Enterprise, most ship classes were named for the first vessel of their kind.
