Thoughts on Bella?
I'm warming to the name Bella, although I dislike it as a nickname for Arabella, as I feel like Arabella is almost too pretty to be shortened. However, I'm a bit concerned with it, as I know it's very popular as a dog's name - to the point where, I actually only know 1 human Bella, and it's just a nickname for her (her actual name is Carmela).
My family does have a tendency to use very acceptable human names for their pets, such as:
Maggie (yes, two different dogs)
Molly/Mollie (again, two)
Because of who a few of these pets belong to, I actually likely can't use some of them (Keira, Oliver and Lilly mostly).
I feel like because of the names my family does use for animals, Bella is very much a possibility for the next pup or kitten my aunties or cousins get, which would, depending on the aunt or cousin, would render the name unusable (I have one aunt and cousin in particular who would most definitely say that a name, such as Keira is a dog's name only now).
So, is Bella ok to use, or should I avoid it like the plague and add it to the never ending list of 'pets only' names?
haley./twenty./still figuring things out.
