    Wilson was the name our breeder gave him. After trying about 100 other names Wilson just stuck so we kept it at that - he just seemed like a Wilson to us. His registered name is Sir Wilson NOA Abbiati. NOA stands for the first initials of our other boys, Nitro, Orion & Ace. Nitro and Orion have sense passed on to Rainbow Bridge.

    I love this thread!
    During the 2 day drive from Vermont to Kentucky to pick up our bully we brainstormed and finally chose the name Dottie. We probably spent a whole day then coming up with other potential nicknames stemming from Dottie. We arrived in Kentucky and immediately found out that our bully's mom was named... Dottie. It just didn't seem right to name them the same thing so we figured the next best old-fashioned female name had to be Mildred. Most people call her Millie but I actually call her Mildew because I'm convinced her face almost always looks like she smells something bad .

    I decided to go with Hulk, because 1) one of my childhood heroes and greatest wrestler of all time is Hulk Hogan and 2) I thought it was a very fitting name for a Bulldog.

    We rescued/ but not a normal rescue from a shelter, saying this we paid as much for Rollie as we would have a puppy, he was 2. But worth every penny! His real name is Rolex, who names a dog after a watch.. We soon found out that he was very expensive ( many vet trips/surgeries) and the name kinda fit him. hmm me and my husband couldn't call him that for long.. We changed it. Winston was an adult too, so we kept his name.

    Maggie: She was the first bully we adopted. She did not come with a name so we named her Margaret but Maggie for short. The name came about because she licks her mouth nonstop and reminded us of the character Margaret McPhoyl from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia who also licks her mouth non stop.

    McKenna aka Winnie: We just adopted a new bully into our family (as of last week). She is currently named McKenna but it is not a name I personally like so we are renaming her Winnie as in my husband's childhood crush Winnie Cooper.

    1) ALDO well, my girls' names are Alana and Alexia, both start with AL so I wanted a name that was cute AND also started with AL like the girls.. I thought they would go GREAT together..
    2) KATARA well, I then decided I wanted a little friend for Aldo, and I thought about another AL name, but it was just too much, and TOO MUCH of a good thing is NOT GOOD.. it would have been tacky at this point.. So, we chose Katara after a very cool character in the cartoon and movie the LAST AIRBENDER.. she is a smart and poised young lady that is also very strong and talented... just like my little dog
