To me calling a modem ship the name of a ship that's 200 years old is like making a new SUV with a hydrogen engine in it and calling it a Model T Ford. This ship isn't the Raptor (yes, it's Raptor based). It should have a new name (even if it's Raptor cha')
I follow what you are saying, but if you look at some of the interviews with Cryptic they talk about class of ship ie. Destroyer, Light Cruiser being key and the choices you make in building it determining canon class...

the example they gave was Federation light cruiser... well depending on how you configure it, it could be a Miranda class or a Centaur class, or some variation thereof... I'm feeling like that's how this thing could go right now. Maybe there are specific Klingon names for different structural variants of this base 'raptor' class...
