I was told that "future dream" is fine but for me the first one sounds fine because whenever we dream for something good to happen,it normally indicates "in the future".

For example: I want to become a Doctor. Here it is clearly indicating about the future then why "My future dream" is correct ? I don't know for sure whether it is correct or not.

  • Your dream is of a future when you (hope to) become a dentist. But you have that dream now, not in the future. – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Mar 12 '18 at 17:03

It is a bit strange to talk about "a future dream":

How can you ever know what you will dream in the future? You can't.

Just stick to "dream".

You can add "future" to things that actually may/will take place in the future, so saying things like

My dream is to become a dentist in the near future

is fine.

Agreed. But for something with nefarious intent you would be better using vocabulary that reflects this. E.g. "I have grand schemes of turning my sadistic urges into a high paying profession"
