    I love hearing everyone's stories...I just love how much everyone adores their bullies. Thank you so much for taking a moment to reply to my thread...

    BTW my female was named Karly Isabella Sinclair - Karly after my son's favorite Japanese singer Sinclair to match Nigel's last name and Isabella so that her initials would be K.I.S. and go with her heart on her pattern.

    All your stories are great. We kept Ruckus's name when we adopted him. I felt so bad that his family was giving him up, and other than a crate that was too small, a travel water bowl, and very few puppy teethers I felt his name was the only thing that was really his. We didn't want him to have to adjust to a new name on top of a whole new family.

    Coming about Tubs' name was difficult. Even though he is "technically" my daughter's dog I had to like the name too. I kept throwing names out there and my daughter didn't like any of them. On the way up to the breeders when he was 2 weeks old we came up with Shortstack. I loved that name and that is what we told the breeder his name was going to be. After a little while my daughter was having second thoughts. We looked online for bully names and she put a couple of name together that she found and we got Tubs' full name of: TWO TON TUBS!

    Angus was named after the "Great" Angus Young, my most favorite of guitar players from my most favorite of bands. There is also another meaning behind his name. Yes two!!! Our second bulldog's name was Porter, after Porter from the movie Payback, so Angus is just another special type of meat heh. Our next bully will more than likely be named Prime. From the meat and yes, Transformers, although Prime is not my favorite, Soundwave is, it just jumps out at me! Great stories gang, keep em comin!!!
    I don't own a bulldog, my bulldog owns me...

    Awww, I love all the stories! They are cute, funny, heartwarming, and all bullie! As for ours, Frank wasn't originally a Frank. We had seen the newer Sherlock Holmes movie and his bulldog's name in the movie was Gladstone. So we had our heart set on Gladstone. When we picked up our new little guy and took him home, the first thing we agreed was that he did NOT look like a "Gladstone". Instead of looking dignified, he looked more like he would be the type to get into trouble, such as going streaking (if he wore clothes, that is!) So we named him "Frank the Tank" from Will Farrell's character in "Old School".

    Brewer mainly got his name because we are huge Milwaukee Brewers fans. But the second main reason is because there are no kids in this entire family. My sister in law has a dog named Packer (obviously for the Packers football team. we are all in Wi). The boyfriends parents always call the dogs her Grandpuppies, so we thought it would be fun to have the Brewers and the Packers.

    As we brought home our first English Bulldog we decided that she had to be named after one of the female members of the British Royal Family. So we went through all the Queens and Princesses until we came to the Queen's sister ... Princess Margaret. Hence the name Maggie! Maggie's second name is Meatball because her father's middle name on the papers was Meatball. So Maggie Meatball was born!!

    Daddy was just a name we really loved for a boy bulldog so we had already set our heart on that. His middle name is Blue, and that's because we got the phone call from the Rescue organisation confirming that we was ours on the way to Cleveland. We were going to the theatre to see the "Blue Man Group" ... and so he became Daddy Blue. Although now he gets called Daddy Dumb-Dumb more than anything else, because if you look into one of his ears you can see all the way through to the other side!!

    It's a small world story: Bo's great great grandfather was "Champion Little Ponds Chief" and he was Mable's great grandfather also. That guy got around, eh? LOL
    What's even more amazing is the Bo came from rescue and he's "related" to my (RIP) Mabeline "Mable" Fabulash - named for her auntie who is a drag queen.

    Beefeaters Buxom Beatrice - My daughter Rhiannon liked the Beatrix Potter stories when she was small so he picked out "Bea" - I filled in the rest with her kennel and her stature. Buxom doesn't even begin to describe my little wine barrel doggie.

    Bo had a couple of names before I got him - neither of which "fit" in my opinion. Lord Harringtons Bodacious Beauregaard - Harrington is the breeder, "Lord" is because he's MY master basically hahahaha no, really it just sounded English so I went with it - and he is Bodacious - that's for sure.

    Jack had a bunch of names before we settled on Jack-Jack. He originally was going to be "Jimmy" because its a name my husband loved after watching a Seinfeld episode (it still cracks him up). And since we had to really work our charm to convince my husband to get a bulldog, we thought he should have naming rights. Then we started coming up with names of important Naval officers in history. And then we were going to name him Louis after my aunt Lois who says bulldogs are ugly (she says it to be funny and really does like Jack). And then he was going to be named Gibby after a characted in iCarly. And then my daughter decided that we should name him Capt. Jack Sparrow. So she thinks he is named after Johnny Depp's character, my youngest daughter thinks he is baby Jack-Jack from The Incredibles and my husband says that Jack is Jack McCoy from Law & Order and I say its just easier for Jack to understand when I call him Jack A$$ because he ate my shoes again.

    @Vicaroo1000 That's too funny, what a small world. My Lucy Lu's Grandfather was "Champion Little Ponds Chief" and my Buddy Boy's Great Grandfather is "Champion Little Ponds Chief". Lucy also has "Beefeaters" in her down line 3 generations down, just can't remember the name, I don't have her pedigree here at work. My Sexy girl's Sire is "Little Ponds Deal Me In" and her Dame is "Phenix' Sex By Fedex". It's funny how when you look at the different pedigrees you find how some of our bullies are related in some way.

    [QUOTE=Lucy-licious!;123902]Well Lucy was originally a Lambchop, but the day we went to see her the Breeder asked me what she should call her, to get her used to her name a little until we picked her up 2 weeks later.
    Connor (my son) told them Lambchop and very suddenly I said no she's a Lucy and Lucy Lambchop she has been since.
    Lately though, she mostly gets called babycakes by my hubby and I
