I don't think you'll hve any problems. Our previous dog, our beloved little Maggie that was adopted from the shelter, was named Peanut when we got her. She just wasn't a Peanut so Maggie she became. No problems whatsovever changing her name.
Maddie was orginally Wendy I think so there's another example. I'm pretty certain these guys don't care what you call them. It's how you treat them that counts. After all, we call our girls any number of nicknames. They respond to just about anything depending upon the tone of voice we use.
Pick a name that means something to you.
