Reconstructionism is, imo, very much a method. If the deities you find yourself interested in are Romano-Celtic, and your practices are grounded in Celtic practices and culture, then I'd say you're likely to still fall under the CR umbrella. If you honored those same deities with Roman practices and from a Roman cultural stand-point, I'd say the CR umbrella wouldn't cover you anymore. Ymmv, of course.

Also, IMO, what you call yourself is much less important than what you belief and/or how you live your life and honor your deities.

I guess what I'm saying -- besides seconding Juni's point that CR is a method more than it is a specific religion -- is that you need to figure out for yourself what elements are important to you.  To a large extent, what you call it is irrelevant.  Many of us have created our own names for our paths because we realize that, as Tana said upthread, there isn't anything homogeneous about the Celts or their religious beliefs, so we have to try to figure a lot of it out ourselves.

IOW, don't worry about it.  Go with your instincts and follow your callings.   Cheesy
