Hmm. Personally, I'm not a fan of child names for pets, but follow your heart.
Although I would like to say a few things:
This might be just me, but Pepsi and Rain/Rainy make me think of a dog that needs to go to the bathroom a lot. Also, Windy and Breeze/Breezy make me picture a dog that has a lot of, well, gas. Sorry! Don't listen to me if you don't want to, I completely understand.
From your list, I ADORE Coco, Jingle, and Snowy. Snowy would be a great name for a white dog, and Coco and Jingle would be adorable no matter what your dog looks like. Good luck! Hope this helped.

I like the idea of a dog named Josephine that would go by Posy and Poe. I just like all the versions. Dog trainers says it is a good idea to give your dog a longer, more formal name to use to talk about the dog, and then a shorter nickname that is the dog's call name. This is because your dog's name should mean "come!" Or at least "Pay attention!" Yet you talk about your dog all the time. So when you are talking to your husband you would say, "I'm taking Josephine to the vet tomorrow." But at the dog park you would call "Po-sy!" Hope all that rambling made sense.
I like Snow, and my on hesitation is that again, dog trainers say to never name your dog anything that starts with or sounds like "No!" because obviously you want no to mean no. I'm sure it still works out at times, despite what the experts say.
One dog and cat I am sold on is Pansy. I think it is adorable and goes well with puppy or kitten faces. I just like the name but everyone says it is off limits for human children because of teasing potential, but I don't see why it shouldn't be in play for pets.
I'll just throw out suggestions:
Sky or Skyler, especially for a blue merle Sheltie
Also, consider the personal, which only you can know. I think favorite writers, characters (books or movies), acters, and artists make great sources for a loved name.
