    Since 1996 I've personally rescued (in order)
    Hoss, OscarMayer, Lacey, Smedley, Dozer, Josie, Myra, Cocoa, and Zoey. They all came into rescue with those names and I elected not to change any of them.

    I did, however, name Lala because she came into rescue shortly after the passing of Lola and both were white with similar markings.

    I also named a rescue and re-home; a stray that I named ChooChoo. Named that because of the train wreck that she was when she came in.

    We had thought about changing Mabel's name when we adopted her from the rescue (it wouldn't matter. She doesn't come to anything!) but someone told me that her name means Mothers Aways Bring Enough Love. That was all it took for us, since she had been bred so many times.

    Harley's original name was Molly but she never did answer to it. One day I called her Harley on accident (after watching the Suicide Squad movie trailer) and she came running! She also grabbed my hubby's underwear off the bathroom floor every morning before he could get them to the laundry basket and she would streak across the house and hide behind the couch with them.

    The name "Molly Harley Quinn Mayhem" just stuck after that. She goes by Harley for short.

    Bear's full name is Ted E. Bear but "Bear" for short. The name just stuck out of a long list of names we had come up with, and our son plays soccer for the US Coast Guard Academy - the Bears. Plus, he looked like a little bear to us...he sure is growing like one! He's four months old now and just love the little puddle duck...

    This is a great Poll / Thread. Y'all have some great names for your EB's and the stories behind them are very creative to heartwarming. I had wanted an EB for a long time but the circumstances / timing was just not right until recently, so when the time finally came I had several names floating around in my head, but I had to find a pup first. When I did, he was a "Dozer" - which was one of my favorites but he still had to fit the name. He certainly did to me the second I saw him. I thought it was pretty original but I've seen or heard of a few others (I know I saw Vikinggirl had one called that upon joining this site).

    I liked the name Dozer for a male EB because:

    #1 - It fits their thick, strong frame, sounds masculine and the ones I had been around used their head to head-butt me to get my attention and move whatever was in their way.

    #2 - The other definition of Dozer has to do with different forms of sleeping, which we all know EB's are masters of!

    She came pre-named. She's a rescue. I attempted to re-name her Layla ( after Clapton song ) never worked. She's Porkchop Layla used it as a middle name.

    He has a beautiful brindle pattern, that reminded me of a Tiger, so his name is Tyger, comes by Ty

    Jax's registered name is Jackson Juju Bean and he is named after Jax from Sons of Anarchy (minus the Juju Bean).

    (King) Louie comes from The Jungle Book. Once he gets neutered he will get registered with the AKC and his "formal" name will be It's Good to be King which is a Tom Petty song.

    Sherman came with his name...it fit, so it stayed. We got him at 2 years old in rescue.

    Custer was a rescue originally called "Fat Man" which I personally found repugnant. We named him Custer as our first date was at Custer State Park...and with Sherman, we had two generals

    Next came Stonewall, another rescue. We went with the general theme

    Maisie came named Margot at 5 years of age. We use "lets go" for anytime we need them to heel off leash. She was getting so confused with 'lets go' and Margot, so we changed her name to Maisie which actually suits her better.

    In a couple months our new puppy will come. His name will be Mosby, to continue our Civil War General name theme

    I had wanted a English Bulldog for 10 years, at the time we had a Jack Russell named Oreo, she passed away from cancer at the age of 14, and after she passed, I said no more dogs. A year later I was missing a dog and started looking for a Bulldog, I knew I wanted a boy, and I said to my hubby if I ever get to have a Bulldog, I'm going to call him Bulldozer
    (Dozer for short). When we went to see the puppies, they had two left, we spent about a half an hour playing with the two pups. They were both so cute, but I wanted my Bulldozer, but Hubby and our Grandson fell in love with his sister. It was Mothers Day Weekend, and I asked the man if I could pay for Dozer, and come back on the Sunday and pick him up after I bought all the supplies I would need. When we returned to pick him up, the man brought both puppies upstairs, two buckets of food, and two contracts. I was confused, and said, I wanted the male, and he said to me you wanted both of them right? I said No, but Hubby quickly said Yes. He had called back after we got home and told the man we wanted both puppies, he said he couldn't leave her behind, and she was so cute. I was shocked, but happy. It was the best Mothers Day present ever. I thought of naming her Tonka, since we had a Bulldozer, but the guys thought it was a boy name, so I suggested Tanka, but they didn't like it. We thought of different theme or couple names like
    Elvis and Priscilla, Rocky and Adrienne, Rocky and Roxie, Jagger and Bianca, or Mick and Bianca. I still liked the name Bulldozer, and a friend of mine had a Bully named Daisy, so I started thinking of Flower names, I had Petunia, Buttercup,
    Daphne, and Violet, but then I thought of Blossom, and we all liked it. It started with a B like Bulldozer, It reminded me of the Skunk Blossom from Bambi, and it suited her. My son calls her Apple Blossom, but she's our Blossom. I think it's a cute name.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
