I would say they used Easter because people could relate to Easter as opposed to passover and understand when it happened.
Replacing the God-breathed word for another word just to make people happy or more comfortable when they read the passage is doing harm to the Word of God.
The same can be said of the word church. King James gave specific instructions to the translators not to translate the Greek ἐκκλησίαν (ekklēsian) to "assembly" or "called out ones" because James did not want the masses of Christians to believe they were on equal footing as he was as "King of England" and "Head of the Church". Human hubris did damage to God's word.
