Another pretty and original name for a dog is Jupiter. The name of this planet is beautiful by itself and also recalls the vastness of space - a very good choice indeed. But if you prefer another planet, you can choose any other name, for example, Saturn (which also has a very nice sound) or Mars.

Don't worry about sounding too pompous - your dog will not mind at all.
