Using a command other than no?

So our family dog recently passed away and my dads looking at getting a new puppy. My problem is my dad is very adamant on her name being Noel. It’s what he wanted to name our old dog and me and my sister were against it. I’m just afraid that Noel is to similar to the word no. And since I’m the one training her and raising her like our last one I want to use the right command from the beginning. So does anyone think the name Noel and the word no are to close and if so what other words could I use instead of no. My biggest concern is if god forbid someone would have to tell her no that doesn’t know her when me or my dad wouldn’t be around. I never had a problem with my dogs being mean in the past and they are boxers wich are usually very friendly I just like to prepare for the worst and want her training to go as smooth as possible.

It is quite common for people to not use NO in relation to a dog as it means nothing to them. Instead you tell them what you want them to do, for example, leave it, come, sit, etc. NO does not tell them what you want them to do.

Our pups name is Nova, so we didn’t use the word ‘No’. For a little while we used a”stop” but now we don’t use it at all. We just taught her “leave it” and “drop it” and if she does anything else we don’t want her to do we redirect and ask her to sit/down.

I taught my dog "no" ("nee" in my language) for a very specific reason, namely to not eat poop or other things he found on the street.

When he was a puppy he was especially fond of goose poop but it gave him diarrhea and I thought eating poop was gross.

So I taught him "no" in order to stop him from doing that.
