    Default How did you decide on your Bullies name?

    I was just wondering how everyone decided on what to name your Bully.
    Did you base it on personality, looks or some other reason?

    My dogs names are
    Boz: King Bostrom the Hog - he is a rescue so we didn't have a choice but it fits him
    Ciara: Morgan's Ciara Rose - I just thought Ciara was a pretty name and it fit with our first Bullie Cheyanne (she passed away at 11 months)
    Ciara is the mom of Echo & Aries, we had a mythological theme when naming her litter. Their litter mates were Nyx, Isis and Tryton
    Echo: Morgan's Echoes in the Night
    Aries: Morgan's Something's in the Air

    Originally, before we even found a breeder, we were supposed to name our puppy Pickles (I don't know why, but it was my husband's dream to have a bulldog named Pickles). We had first pick of the litter, and I think he actually selected us, but he clearly wasn't a Pickles. We thought he either looked like a gangster or royalty. After going through a brunch names we somehow landed on Rook. My husband plays a lot of chess, and somehow Rook just seemed to suit him.

    We are saving the name Pickles and a couple of other names we came up with in the process for our future pups.

    Abby went through several name changes the first 2 days she was here.

    She came to us being called Lily. She didn't look like a Lily and she certainly didn't act like a delicate flower lol. My oldest son Jeremy used to have a bulldog and the thing that no one can seem to forget is the smell coming out of Moe all the time Jr decided we should name her something perfumish. At first we were going to call her Febreeze but my son Jimmy said he'd lock us both out of the house . Jr's favorite cologne is by Marc Ekko so Echo was her name for a couple of hours. Then it was CoCo but we decided that was too popular so we switched it to Chanel. She was Chanel for about a day when I started cleaning out my DVR of General Hospital episodes. It was during the time Michael was living with that stripper Abby and she was ALLLL he talked about (I almost quit watching the show over that). Every time the tv said Abby she looked up. We figured she liked the name so we gave it to her We changed it up a little and made it Lady Abigail because she was such a princess, but on a daily basis she is our Abby

    Elli got her name from the male name we were going to give to our bully.

    I always wanted an English bully and name him Wellington and a frenchie named Napoleon. Well our puppy choice was a girl and so when told the litter name they said Ellie but it turned out that was her sister. Her name was elva and that was not sticking. So we took Wellington, shaved a few letters off to get miss Elli.

    We tend to like human names for our pets. I wanted something that either sounded tough or nerdy hahaha. When we got our pup, the choices were Hugo, Stanley, or Howard. Although my 7 year old really wanted to name him Luke Skywalker or Iron Dog lol. My husband really wanted to name him Howard. Since he isn't really a dog person and he seemed so excited about it, I let him pick the name Howard. And it truly fits him - he is all Howard!!!

    Watson was the name he was called when I got him from the breeder. It was unique enough and I am a fan of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson so I kept the name

    Well I always wanted a girl and had two boys. I always said if I had a girl her name would be Tessa. Well I didn't have a skin girl but the next best thing to it was a female EB I named Tess!!! 😊

    Ditto!! We talked about other human names like Fred (my husband is still whining about that one, lol). Then I said Arnold and of course Schwarzenegger followed!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise
