Well, I don't know if it is much of a comparison given the age of your dog, but Shelby was Cassie for about a week or so. She didn't respond to that name, so we changed it. Shelby is her sire's name, so I think she was just familiar with it and responded better to it.
Also, we all give our dogs nicknames and they respond to those just fine. I don't think it would matter to much to change her name. Maybe you can pick something that is similar - same # of syllables, "s" sounds, etc.
