    Ahhh great question,
    We pick from the heritage of the original OLD ENGLISH BULLDOG, which to Me is England .
    We always pick females so that narrows the search , The Prettyone and I go online and use other avenues like books we have read movies we like ect ect .
    We might pick 30 or 40 names and then go threw a elimination process just the two of us careful to look at the short form of each name and that fit to us also , we always pick pups so at that stage we do not have any idea of personality and name fit is the draw back to this process but worked for us so far . Diva was a save and not named by us and to be honest she was named very very well , not a name I would have even considered but she was well named a pure Diva she was .
    Anyhow after we have narrowed down the names to 20-15 or below we get the rest of the family involved to help pick the final name ( I reserve the right to final pick but rarely use it so far )
    Matilda God bless her or as many would know her here as Tilly
    Primrose or as some know her here as Rosie
    As I have 4 out of 5 dogs as saves I sometimes change there names but only if they are young pups still , if there older saves I stick to there name . I always enquire with the rescue group if they changed the name or did the pup come named that way , Dakota for example came as Parka , did not suit him so changed it , Odin was perfectly named the big goof as was Nelli I just changed the spelling of her name to Me to show her as what she is a wonderful individual , Willow came named as Willow and was a good fit for her
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    My husband named Biscuit, she looks like one lol so I voted on looks. He says we need to get a white boy and name him Gravy! As for my other 3 dogs, Polly came with her name - adopted at age 1. Hubs named Neo our boy pitty after the Matrix and I named our other mix Tucker just randomly. I liked the name. My cat is Milo after Milo and Otis : )

    Our first bulldog came with the name Daisy. We then decided to stay with a floral theme.

    So- Daisy, Flora, Marigold and Bluebelle. I really like classic style names. My daughters are Isabel and Olive. I love picking names for pets and humans lol.
    Current Bulldogs: Bluebelle (5.19.16)
    Past bulldogs always in my heart: Marigold, Daisy & little Flora

    Aw these are all great reasons!!

    We named Walter after our fav tv show Breaking Bad �� heheee

    Initially we wanted a British Bulldog named Walter and a Frenchie named Jesse but I think we'll not be able to resist the temptation of a second Bullie, they're just too cute ❤️

    Luckily we first met Walter when he was only 4 weeks old so the breeder was happy for us to choose his name and she continued to call him Walter until we picked him up ��

    Love it! My inlaws dogs are named Hamilton and Cena after Josh Hamilton and John Cena. I raised those pups as they were abandoned by a river at a week old.

    When we went to pick Ruthie up her name was Opal at the rescue. Even though she is a precious gem, she didn't fit that name, so we named her Ruthie after Brian's mom since we aren't having kids and thought it would be a nice tribute. His mom loves that we named Ruthie after her. she lives up to the sweetness of her name.

    Brutus...hahaha, Brutus came to us with the name Buddy and it did not fit him one bit. The first thing i said when he came barreling into our house when his foster mom dropped him off was "He's such a Brutus", we waited a bit to change his name and we actually had people, who didn't know us meet him when we took him out and say..."man he looks like a brutus" or "he's such a brut". So hence, we changed it from Buddy to Brutus. Brutus was meant to be his name and i'm happy after he's been to 4 different homes before ending up with us that he has a name he can live up to.

    My husband picked both names. We get the best compliments about Hank's name. People always ask what his name is and when we tell them they love it and say he looks like a Hank.

    Frank was originally going to be Gladstone, from the English bulldog in the newer Sherlock Holmes movie. Then we had him for a while and his personality become apparent to us that he was not a dignified Gladstone but more of a Frank the Tank from the movie Old School.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!
