The Federation sets precedent for using old ship classes with new tech making it seem within canon.
The K'tinga model was used for a bunch of different Klingon ships (and even Romulan ones). The D5s and D7s look like the K'tinga, but they all have different names.

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')
