Lots of things get names - boats, pets, whatever - and no one worries about the name being unique unless the name is registered for identification (such as show horse or show dogs). Those show names tend to be ridiculous, and a better (and not necessarily) familiar name is routinely used... which has probably been used for other animals. It doesn't matter what I think, but I say call it whatever you want, and if there is a name you like with a proud history I think that would be an excellent choice.
I note that oceangoing vessels, which use their names for quasi-official identification, routinely have non-unique names. As long as the repeated name is not used to intentionally cause confusion in identity, I have no problem with that.
