I think that the Emperor*, a being with stated ties (at least in older fluff) to the region and time during which the Mesopotamian goddess was worshipped, used a name/theme from his "youth". This was not a one-time occurrence: the use of the double-headed eagle, for instance, or of eagles and lightning bolts also harkened back to archaic empires and motifs.

* Or, at any rate, the writers who come up with the fluff.
