    Tyson was already Tyson when I got him. I didn't want to confuse him, and plus since he was a big boy, I figured it was pretty fitting. LOL

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    For some reason we had a W name thing going... Winston, then Wellie so we just continued the tradition. We are HUGE Disney fans, so Walter was named after Walt Disney. Willow was my hubby suggestion and we kinda like the way it fit w/Walter so WallynWillow it became.

    Joey is named after our Mom. I, of course, consulted my sisters when naming her. Joey was our Mom's nickname and my girl Joey is every bit as sweet as our Mom was (just a ton more stubborn).....so.....it fits

    Bob (Hubby) and I made a list of our favorites and picked from there, and when we picked Ellie up, it fit perfectly


    Thanks and much Love,

    Some of mine were named already, but out pups we used famous singers, and others I just watched their personality and then named them.

    Monty was called Meaty which we didn't think was dignified enough for him so we changed it to Monty. (Not that he answers to either one!) We thought it was close enough to his original name to not cause a problem plus it is more English.

    Kia came to me with that name, but my first bulldog was Dudley. I named him for the angel in the movie The Bishop's Wife. I love that movie - and was a huge Cary Grant fan - but primarily because in the movie, Dudley helped everyone get what they needed - that's what my boy did for me!

    Default Re: How or why did you choose your bulldog's name?

    Murray is named after my grandfather, it was his middle name. He loved dogs and passed away before I got Murray but I know they would have loved each other. My grandfather and I were very close and I took his passing very hard. One night after my grandfather passed away I had this dream that I was playing with an English bulldog puppy, I can't explain it but I woke up feeling like my grandfather had been telling me that it was the right time to get a dog. I had been looking for a bulldog for years but had a very difficult time finding a breeder. The next day my dad found a friend who knew of a breeder and a week later I had Murray

    My baby's name is Apollo. I looked up several Greek Gods names and my daughter, husband and I all liked this name. Although my daughter preferred Pluto. My brother's all wanted me to name him Gronk-after the Pat's player.
