April already had her name when we were blessed with receiving her - her breeder found out she was being abused by her owner HE WENT AND KICKED A LITTLE A$$ AND SUDDENLY THE GUY DIDNT WANT HER ANYMORE - great man .We were going to change her name to Mable (close to April ) then we found out she was born on April fools day ----- April it has been ever since
We had a bunch of names picked out for an English when and if we ever had the chance to be owned by one. When we were driving home from picking him up my wife was in the back seat and I was driving and right when we pulled into our driveway she said I cant get over this little buster and from that second on it stuck and I truly believe he looks like a Buster and acts like a Buster!! HAHA!!
Long story short. Single, met Joe, 5 months later going to get married on the beach here in FL. MY family decided they knew best (I was 45 yrs old) got way to involved. Joe calls me on a Wed. told me to book a flight to Vegas to elope. Flew out Friday, got married Saturday, flew home Sunday. Joe ask me on the flight home what I wanted for a wedding present. I responded and English Bulldog. One month after we got married Joe got me one. His name is Vegas. lol. The end.
I originally traveled across the country to visit our friends -and do pictures of breeders puppies ,but my husband had a surprise for me -i will take home one of the girls
To much of everyone surprise (apart from my husband) i chosen the smallest girl they had - (back then called Delilah (peggy sue) by the breeders) after crying from happiness and thanking everyone ,i cradled this little girl who was snorring into my ears -i named her Lily as she is (well was!) delicate and beautiful
This is the picture from the day i named her -after crying ;-)
Shes also the double of her mum ! Same markings and positive attitude x

Joe is named after the rapper "Fat Joe"... I had him named long before I got him. I got my first dog when I was 15, he was a German Shepard named Calvin after Snoop Dogg's real name. I decided to stick with the rapper theme. Joes 1st name before I got him was Tank.
Chesty's name was going to be Murphy but since I brought him home without telling my dad and then when I got home with him I called my dad who was out of town and told him, he said you better take him back I told him no and sent him a picture and my dad fell in love with him and asked what his name was I said Murphy and he said no it's Chesty (named after the Marines mascot ( my dad was in the Marines)) So I figured since he was letting me keep him he had a say in his name. lol

Before we got a EB I searched online every night for name. When I thought we were getting a female I couldnt find the right name. All the male names were so cute. We decided to get a male. And wouldnt ya know it I didn't like the male names thought the females names were better...lol I wanted Lilly or Ollie. On the car ride home he stunk . We started to call him Stinky and after a few days we added Pete. So his real name is Petey Pete and is nick name is Stinky Pete.
Should have been "Barry the bulldog" a bit of an Australian too, we like people names for our dogs (eg we have had Chloe, Billy, Gus, had one unusual name of Spud), as soon as he was home his name was shorten by the kids to BAZZA, in a Australia a Sharon is Shazza, a Darren is Dazza etc, so Bazza stuck but if he is in trouble sometimes we call him Barry but he probably doesn't know that as his name.
Brie was a cheesy clown (and still is) so I came up w the name based on that. Originally my hubby wanted a boy to name brick. When we got a girl, I thought of briquette. I thought well, we would call her bri for short, but then Brie just popped into my head and just seemed to fit.
Loki's name from the breeder was Quigley... weird right. He was such a mischievous loving little **** when we first meet him and Loki seemed the perfect fit. The beans came from the fact that they have bad gas

I had my name picked out about three years before I got Ftse and its from the UK Stock Exchange (Ftse 100) - the 100 as I thought it an appropriate name for a EBD
