I also know of dogs whose names rhyme with, or at least sound similar to, commands (Tommy Wilson has great success with his bitch Sly, and I don't think there's an issue that she's confusing her name with "Lie." Lots of border collies have been name Fly, too, and I know of an Ike, so at least a hard I sound doesn't seem to be a problem.) I've not heard of anyone saying they wish they'd chosen another name because the dog was being confused by it all. And eventually the dog should be on whistles and ryhmes will be irrelevant. I've had more problems with having dogs here with similar sounding names mixing up who I was calling....
Choose a name you like and that fits the dog and go forward! If you happen to like a name like Serendipity, name the dog that and call her Seren!
I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream.

I have two that came with their names; Blair & Dusty(which often is shortened to 'Dust' on & off sheep).
I named my other two; Jayne & Owen(shortens to 'O' more off sheep than on). Owen is gaelic for 'son of nobility' as he is a son of my Blair. ;+D
