I believe they justified the 3 nacelles by saying that each nacelle contains a pair of warp coils. That is splitting it really fine, however.
I had always called them Primary Hull (Saucer in STO) and Secondary Hull. I'm not sure where I picked up that nomenclature, but it seems to be a bit more generic.
