    Default "Why did you name him that?"

    Along with the how much did you pay for Nigel question - I also get asked 'why did you name him that'? So I thought it would be fun to share our stories of how we came to name our bullies the way we did.

    Nigel Wentworth Sinclair: He was always going to be named Nigel Sinclair just because it had a British feel to it...but when I watched 'Prison Break' I fell in love with the actor Wentworth Miller and decided to add that as his middle name. So that's how he became my Nigel Wentworth Sinclair

    Gregory is named after his grandfather. At first it was sir gregory and intended as a joke, but then it stuck. Sometimes it gets confussing because my dad also takes his two dogs to the same vet.

    Nitschke was named after 'Ray Nitschke' of the 1960's Green bay Packers. Banks is named after 'Ernie Banks' of the Chicago Cubs

    Gracie came to rule here as a retired 'working girl'. Her name was Gracie.... booooooooring!!!. As her temperament evolved it was evident she was no ordinary Gracie and since she obviously ruled her kingdom her name also evolved into: Her Royal Highness Princess Gracie.............. or: HRH for short!!!

    I love to hear these stories . Mine are soooo obvious lol. Gator is Gator because my husband went to UF and is a huge Gator fan. My little daughter actually said we should call him that. I call him Gator Ray, hence my screen name. Then when we got Gyps, the only way I could talk him into getting her was to give him naming rights and it is just the name he picked. boring! lol But I call her Gypsy Rose

    Well Buddy's AKC name is "Texas' Star One of a Kind" aka Buddy Boy. I keep calling him "my little buddy" so Buddy Boy just stuck. He was Lucy's only pup, so that's how he got the "one of a kind" and he lives up to it too, because he is a one of a kind great boy. The girls, we just kept their AKC names that the breeder we bought them from had named them. Lucy is "Phenix's Lucy Lu", BeBe is "Little Ponds Bella BeBe" which when we registered her we had to change to "Phenix's Bella BeBe, and Sexy Girl is "Phenix's She's so Sexy".

    well my story is not as exciting. we had picked sarah up from his friend and she was in horrible shape. he drove and i rode with her on my lap as she weighed 27 pounds then. we were mulling over names as her name was angel but she didnt even know it. he said name her hope as she has hope now. i said yea thats pretty good. as i mulled over that name and i sat with her on my lap we bonded somewhat. she looked at me and i knew her name was sarah. didnt come from any family nothing just out of the air from her to me. her middle name is hope so he had a hand in her name to. and sarah hope was born on that car ride.

    Mystory isn't too interesting either. Shoot, we had our bullies names picked out way before we had kids. Winston was Sir Winston Alexander.
    Matilda looked just like her momma so we called her Mommas Madame Matilda.


    Who wouldn't love that face???
