Celebrity Pet Name Regret
Paulina Rubio, who recently revealed her pregnancy, was seen last week bundling her pooch like a baby (pictured). According to a completely anonymous comment on a dog website (so you know the info is good, right?), the new pup's name is Carola. Before this little pup, Rubio had a well-known dog named Miranda, who recorded videos and even audio track with the singer, and whose death was widely reported (on music and pet sites, at least).
Now that she's expecting a baby of the human variety, will Rubio regret using her favorite names on her dogs? Our own Name Lady addressed this (surprisingly common) question today in her column, "Can I Name My Baby After the Dog?" Below, we take a look at celebrity dog names to see which celebrities are in danger of "using up" people names on their pooches.
The first thing we noticed is that celebrities seem to name their dogs after each other. Martha Stewart is the name of Jennifer Garner's dog; Coco Chanel and Frank Sinatra belong to Reese Witherspoon; and Jessica Alba has Sid and Nancy.
But which celebs are in danger of "using up" good people names on their pets? Jake Gyllenhaal used up Atticus on his dog, and Lindsay Lohan and Lauren Conrad both used up Chloe. Mary Kate Olsen used up Luca. Natalie Portman, Mischa Barton and Jennifer Love Hewitt all used up Charlie. Will any regret this choice in the future?

Did you use a favorite baby name or a celebrity name on your pet? Have you had "pet name regret"? Most importantly: have you ever rocked both a puppy-papoose and a fedora?
