OK but Rumble is what I would call my dog. 

Indiana Jones was named after George Lucas's dog, and Zynga after a dog belonging to one of the founders.  Doesn't seem to have hurt either property particularly, though both have of course had their ups and downs.  (Chewbacca's appearance and personality were based on the same dog.)

"Rumble" is also 1950s slang for a street fight or brawl, especially between gangs.

By naming the names they rejoiced in the complexity and specificity,
the wealth and beauty of the world, they participated in the fullness of
being. They described, they named, they told all about everything. But
they did not pray for anything.  --Le Guin, The Telling
