    Do you mean this berry which looks like a black raspberries? If so, it's "ежевика". But it's not a russian female name

    Maybe you could call her

    черная ягода
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Are you going to rename your dog each time you start to learn a new language?
    I hope no (that would be too much of a stress for the poor thing ).
    Besides, as Gerty said, ежевика is never used as a name in Russian (at least for a dog).
    But you can use a diminuative form to caress(?) your pet, like, "Ежевичка ты моя!" (Oh you my little blackberry!)

    Btw, my Lingvo says "blackberry" can also mean "черная смородина" (black-currant) in some dialects.

    А черника -- это, оказывается, bilberry. Надо же...
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.
