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!~Larissa

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!

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