Anyhow, hope we get variety
In the star wars universe, "Destroyer" is usually the largest of warships. (I honestly have not seen the term "battleship" used in the SW universe.) Smaller warships are generally called Frigates or Corvettes, basically SW uses the old sailing ship terminology rather than modern day terminology.

a dreadnaught is a battle ship but i have no idea how they figured crusier=massive flag ship. and if they use old sailing terminolgy than where's my ship of the line? and why do we have dreadnaughts when the whole dreadnaught class battle ship came from a revilutionary and very not wind powered english war ship? face it star wars ship classifications make no sense when compared to any real life ones.

To be fair, the star wars universe tends to randomly pick terms from all over, most of them seem to the old sailing terms but not all.
Also Dreadnought, is actually a turn of century warship, kind of at the midpoint transition from ships have lots of cannons in the side to sets of turrets with heavy caliber guns. It doesn't really fall into the sailing ship terminology nor does it fall into the modern terminology. However Dreadnought is a term that is used liberally in science-fiction and is likely how it wound up in SW.

Do you mean shaped like the Capitol building? Or do you mean shaped liked Capitol Hiill? Or is there another Capitol that I'm not aware of?
