    Both Giovanni and Diva were already named when we got them. Diva fits her name very well! And Gio we just couldn't change, the previous family let their 5 year old son name him so we wanted to keep it. But I did give Gio his middle name! Giovanni "Bruce Wayne" .....ya, I love batman!!

    Well we were on a wait list for a year, we had asked for a male. We know the breeder so we were invited to see the pups at 3 days old! When I held my baby boy, the only male and the runt, he looked just like a sweet little piglet. I always loved " Charlotte's Web" as a girl, and that was it: Wilbur ( and their mom is actually named Charlotte!). A few weeks later we went to visit him again, and we learned that one of the females was not spoken for. We held her and played with her, and that was it. Since I picked Wilbur's name, my guitar- playing Clapton fan BF picked hers.... Layla

    We got Dexter at 8 wks he was already named by the breeder. We could change it if we wanted to. My son decided the name fit him well, so he remained Dexter (registered name Just Dexter). I also liked it because it had a "x" in it. My lab mix is Bronx after the character in Gargoyles and prior to that I had a JRT named Jaxxon. Love those "x's"...lol

    Gunny was named because my better half was a Marine. There wasn't really ever a choice. . I picked his middle name of Beaufort, because he just reminded me (especially on his white side of his face) of one of those heavy southern gentleman with big jowls sitting on their front porch with a white linen suit. The breeder had named all three males in the litter Deniro, Brando and Pacino. Gunny was originally Brando. His full AKC name is Gunny Beaufort the Cajun King.

    Herschel had the name when I adopted him. I was lucky enough to meet the people that were surrendering him and yes, he was named for Herschel Walker the football player since he was one of the most famous (Heisman Trophy winner) from University of Georgia (Mascot is UGA the Bulldog). Funniest part was that he was born in Alabama and the people were huge Alabama fans. I have not given him a middle name, but my mother (Herschel's gramma) is after me to give him one!

    I used to watch the stockchange before going to work each morning and I told my hubby about 3 years before I got a bully that if I am ever so lucky as to get one I was going to call it Ftse as in FTSE100 on the British stock exchange so here we now have Ftse.

    Funny but true.... I named Tonka Truck bc I have 3 girl skin kids. I spoke for a girl pup but was not first to put deposit down. Well the momma dog only had 2 pups one girl one boy so the girl was taken. I couldn't resist his photos and settled for the boy. I went absolutely crazy buying boy toys ( having 3 girl skin kids I never got to buy boy toys before). I had to have him ever boy toy imaginable even a Tonka Truck.

    From the moment I knew I wanted an EB I knew he would have to have an English name. My favorite English name is “Ian” but I already call my car that name so I needed another. I ran down a list and finally decided on “Nigel” but he would need a middle and last name too. He’s awesome remember? I chose “Sinclair” because I thought it had a nice British ring to it. Then in 2005 a show premiered called “Prison Break” and the star was Wentworth Miller. I loved him and the show and decided to name my bully after him. I held onto that name for 5 years. I can’t help but smile at the fact that I had my bully’s name way before I had my bully! People always get surprised when I tell them his full name but I don’t mind because I know what it means to me and it fits him perfectly.

    Our female is named Karly Isabella Sinclair - she belongs to my son and he named her after a fave singer of his named Karly. I added the Isabella and Sinclair so her initials could be KIS because she has a heart on her neck area. She's my kissypoo!


    Cheerio mates!
