The Mothership can also build carriers that function like mini-motherships in their own right, in case the Mothership gets destroyed or gets critically damaged.

All in excess of 15km, and all ridiculously costly to build. Super-carriers were originally called motherships in the game before they switched to the current name.

It could also be because there is a type of Jovian craft in the lore known as the mothership.

They're similar in size to a human carrier, but otherwise are much bigger than the ships around them.
They also carry kinetic weapons capable of impacting in the multiple-dozen-kiloton range, which is what makes them so special. The stand out example is the asari super-dreadnought Destiny Ascension , a unique ship that is also the single largest and most powerful warship in the galaxy Reapers excluded. However, the name is a bit misleading since it doesn't harbor any other spacecraft. The Carrier does that instead.

The term mothership has origins in whaling. The mothership was a large, usually three-masted and full-rigged ship with whale meat processing facilities. It supported the actual whaling craft, who went out to sea to seek and hunt the whales. In modern whaling, the Nisshin Maru functions similarly to this, though technically it is a factory ship.
Smaller faster vessels are needed to catch the whales, but these lack the ability to process the meat and retain their mobility. These ships instead bring it to the mothership, which does have the facilities to properly process and store the massive amount of whale meat and organs. Several types of naval craft effectively serve this purpose in wartime, most famously the Aircraft carrier.
