I think itīs doubtful, that many Starfleet officers would be familiar with (or even care about) the initial origin of a shipīs name. To them these names will most likely just represent the continuation of a proud heritage of previous vessels of the same names. Whether any given name first came from a person, a place or a battle from 500 or more years earlier will not really matter to them anymore, IMO.
Not even close to my point.
