    We had the name Brutus picked out for years before we even thought of getting him. And his name absolutely fits his personality.

    It was pretty funny. His right ear was really bent over and we thought it was going to have to be clued but it corrected itself with time. I had told Mike his name will come to us as we were driving. He was only 4 months old and so so skinny. We put him in the shopping cart at Petsmart and Jack took a big right in the cart while the sales girl was talking to us. We nearly died laughing. OMG it smelled so bad!!!

    I had 2 EBD statues before we even thought of getting a real one. I had named the first one Hooch, and when I got the second one, I had had a particularly bad golf game earlier in the day and named him Double Bogey! So, when we started to think about names for our chosen 5 week old REAL EBD, I just loved the name Bogey! So, we have Bogey, Double Bogey and Hooch. Except Bogey knocked Hooch over and he was in 10 million pieces, so we now just have Bogey and Double Bogey. And to this day, my golf game has not improved!

    Wanted an EB for 25 years and was always going to name him Percy. But a few years ago a very nice family moved in next door and his name was Percy...needed a new name! Thought about what I thought were "dignified" "English" names, Reginald, Winston, Arthur...then one night, right before we got Dudley, I was watching the old movie "The Bishop's Wife" one of my favorites. It hit me, the angel in the movie, played by Cary Grant, was named Dudley. He's been my angel -- and just like Cary Grant was to David Niven in the movie -- my PITA, ever since!

    When we got Sheldon we went through the usual names but if you have ever watched The Big Bang Theory there is a character named Sheldon and he has this strange kinda laugh and Sheldon use to make this noise that sounded just like that laugh and his tail is kinda in the shape of an S hence his name Sheldon.

    Petunia Belle was named after a restaurant in the French Quarter named "Petunia's"...I had wanted to name her Bella but my husband at the time called me from the French Quarter and said he had the perfect name for her...which was true! She was the best gift he ever gave me. Now, practically 9 years later, she is the gift that keeps on giving!

    Love my girl! ♥

    RIP Samson el Torito and Petunia Belle

    Usko means faith...his father is called Toivo (hope) and mother is lempi (love), so was there really a choice????? Voitto means victory and the other choice was Taisto and that means battle....we should of picked Taisto...cause Voitto has given us a few battles...

    Ruthie is named after my mother in law. Since we don't want kids, we thought it was appropriate. She loves that we named Ruthie after her. I want a male bulldog name either Eugene(after her late husband) or Larry (after my dad). It's only right.

    I voted 'Named after someone' - but only one of his names is after someone.
    also note that I had his name for many years just waiting for the day I would finally have him. I've wanted an EB since I was a child and first saw Spike on Tom & Jerry.

    Nigel - because it was a nice English name although Ian is my fave but I already call my car that.
    Sinclair - sounds regal and important lol

    Wentworth - after Wentworth Miller from Prison Break - thought he was so cute when I first saw that show and he still is!

    Hence - Nigel Wentworth Sinclair and it fits him too and always gets compliments wherever we go.


    Cheerio mates!

    All 3 were already named when we adopted them! But if I ever do get an EB puppy it's going to be a male and his name is going to be Bruce Wayne (Batman anyone??!), I've wanted an EB puppy named Bruce Wayne for almost 10 years now hahaha

    Well Matt picked Daisys name out. He though it would be funny to have a stocky lil mean mug with such a delicate name. I wasnt sold on it. But it slowly grew on me. When we met her I knew she was a daisy
