ANYTHING can be a dogs' name! My dad's childhood dog was named Henry; does that mean it's no good for people now? DF had a dog named Tabitha when he was a teenager. Should Tabitha be considered off-limits?
Good, solid names shouldn't be crossed off the list just because so-and-so once had a roommate whose grandma's neighbor's dog went to the same vet as a cat named Rose or whatever. People are weird.
As long as you personally never had a pet named Bella, I don't think it's a problem. My little fur balls are like kids to me so I would never be able to use their names on 'real' children...that would be wierd. In general though, I don't think of a dog when I hear Bella.
I love the name Bella, but would probably only use it as a NN for Isabella or Annabelle (or something along those lines). I do not think it sounds like a dog's name although I have seen dogs with this name before. Then again I have seen dogs with all kinds of "human" names so it doesn't matter.
