    Future Puppy vs. Future Kid Dilemma...

    I have a strange problem. I am most likely getting a puppy of my own soon (still a teen) and I am trying to find creative dog names. I am also obsessed with baby names in general, so my first thoughts are to turn to my name list for girls names. Here's the issue: in the distant future, when I want to have kids, would it still be plausible to use a name for a child that I already used for my dog? I adore Nylah in particular, but I also like it as a legitimate baby name... These thoughts are echoed for most of my other faves.
    I thought about Jezebel, b/c I love the name, but the connotation makes it unsuitable for a kid. But I'm thinking it could still work for a dog.

    Please advise about my concerns. And suggestions of creative dog names would be appreciated as well. I'm thinking I'll probably end up getting a border colie. Thanks, guys!

    I wouldn't use a name that you think may be a serious contender for a future child. I think naming a pet is a great way to use guilty pleasure names, though (Jezebel would make an awesome dog name, in my opinion!). Good luck!

    I agree 100%. I always used guilty pleasure names I wouldn't of named a real baby. My kitty is Aeris.

    I actually have the same issue. My dog's name is Max but my fave boy name is Maxwell. I love the name right now, but knowing myself by the time I actually have kids(Im a teen too) my list will have changed. I really like Jezebel!
    Boys: Maxwell, Bennett, Oliver, Elliott and Archer.

    Girls: Rose, Juliet, Aria, Cora and Scarlett


    Sorry for any random spellings. I'm probably on my nook!

    Don't choose one of your favourite baby names for your puppy! My cousin named her dog Henry and, years later when she was pregnant, wished she could've chosen that name for her son! She ended up naming her son Angus instead.
    Audrey - Beatrice - Clara - Daphne - Flora - Jane - Mabel - Susannah

    Arthur - Barnaby - Edward - Frederick - Henry - Rupert - Theodore - Walter
