Personally, I see nothing wrong with it. Some rescue names annoy the tar out of me or are so bizarre for that animal / personality. Or were just randomly named based on a rescue worker's / previous owners interests (like Harry Potter, Twilight or Hunger Game names). Or they end up with names that are bad luck (like lucky). Plus, many of the breeds end up with stereotypical names like Diesel, Tank, Spike, Jager for big dogs or Fluffy, Fifi, cupcake, maggie, molly, Daisy ect for small dogs. Or seasonal names like Kringle, Claus, ect,
Plus, it adds to the fact the dog is getting a fresh start. Shelter / rescue names are just too over-used or impersonal in my opinion. Many are given just to make it easier to connect to the dog because its more intimate to introduce potential homes to "Max" than it is to introduce them to dog A195.
Go with whatever name you want. Chances are, they've already had at least one name change anyways. And its very easy for a dog to recognize a new name, like others said: Its the tone.
My last foster got called everything from his name "Patriot" to cow dog, moo cow, slobber monster, monster mutt, Dweeb, ect. He answered to everything.
