nope that would confuse me
I was just thinking about this today for some reason...if you had it to do all over again would you give your bully a different name?
Both my current bullies came to me with the names they have now Bre and Tank. I didn't change them because they knew their names and I didn't want to confuse them. My sweet departed bully though...he had bounced through a few homes and was first known as "Cuddles" (for a male bulldog?! lol) then as DOG...yes dog...you read that right. Then when he came to me we landed on the name Jack and it stayed that way till he passed.
So...for those of you that didn't get to name your own bully or just had lots of names in mind...would you change it if you could do the naming all over again?

My bf and I started to think of names when we first saw Stig's picture. We talked about it for days and we couldn't agree on anything until one of us (can't exactly remember who) mentioned Stig, the main car driver from the show Top Gear who wears an all white racing suit. It was right then when we both had this "That's it!" look on our faces. I still think it suits Stiggy perfectly and would never change it.
Punkin, on the other hand, sounded so girly to us. My bf thought it would confuse him too much if we change it since he's already 4.5yo and answers to it. So to masculine it up, I added Brutus ... Punkin Brutus ... the manly counterpart of Punky Brewster. lol.

I had Nigel's name way before I had Nigel so no but I love the name 'Ian' so if I could have another male then he would be my Ian.
My car is Ian for now...and my iPhone is Iggy. Yea I name everything...lol I'm weird but it's the new cool ya know!
We had Nitschke and Banks selected WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY before we actually brought them into our lives -- so, no I would not. And, we have three or four names ready for the next one!!!

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
I had Ftse picked out years ago for when I got a Bully, his breeder had named him Arrow and when I paid my deposit she asked me what I was going to name him and she included it in his pedigree name - PHATAZBULLZ FTSEMYGOODLUCKBOY so Ftse was only 8 weeks old when he came home with us and he got used to his name pretty much straight away.
No, I like the names ours have, plus each of them have two or three names we call them anyways, and they respond to all of them.

I wouldn't change her name for all the money in China. She has too much ABBITUDE to call her anything else lol
For me, her name was Abby

Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.
HRH was Gracie Girl and because we weren't sure if she would be confused we kept Gracie. But she answers to "Where's my Princess?" as much as anything. So we probably could have changed her name completely if we would have wanted to.
I have named all of my dogs and wouldn't change them. Like @Davidh my boys respond to their nicknames also!
I would if the name was something jacked up...like Dog (who does that?! lol) We renamed our Boxer because his name was Rebel. His mom was Dixie and his dad was Willie. Not really my taste...
