New England was not heavily populated by indigenous peoples when the settlers first arrived. So the English colonists were justified in naming their new home after their old home.
What happened to the Native American peoples was tragic, but one cannot demonize a literary culture, such as western Europeans possessed, for wanting concrete names for their records.
Anything or anyone can be called a name at any time, it is not the name we love it is the place. You may be just called a number as far as the powers that be are concerned, as in income paid to they. Is that disrespectful to you, it is to me.
