I rename pretty much all the critters that come under my care. Cats, dogs, birds, horses, none have had a problem with it. I was renamed myself when I went and lived with a family in Japan- my "english" name was hard for them to pronounce, so they just called me something else. Took me maybe a couple days to adjust. All of the animals I've renamed have adjusted just as quickly. If I am going to have to call out a name every day for the next several years, it's got to be something that doesn't make me cringe.
