    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.

    As a teen i always wanted a big fat cat name Carl.
    We got Winslow and going over names, i thought of that. Tubby bulldog > Cat > Carl > Carl Winslow > Winslow

    The best game of Word Association i have ever played! We knew right away, that was it!

    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!
