There does not need to be any link at all. Going by the existing background of the 40k universe, Tyranid Hive Fleets are given designations to identify them and these designations come from the names of 'great beasts from the history of Terra'. Ergo, naming your Hive Fleet for a mythical monster of some kind is the norm, to fit in with the existing background.
