Yep – Dog Black the Black Dog, friend of Wolf Wolf the Werewolf. Though to be fair, unlike Remus, Sirius decided on the animal he’d turn into himself, so it’s possible that he did this on purpose.

But yeah, Sirius as a name for a dog is fairly normal, I think. I wouldn’t have given it another thought had he not been described specifically as a black dog.
