    Dempsey's dad is named Sir Holyfield, we were thinking of names and wanted to keep the boxing names and of course wanted to have an irish name so he was named Dempsey for Jack Dempsey the (irish) boxer.

In fact, we had a patient come in to fill an antibiotic for her child. The prescription read Orion. I said..."Oh, I love that name. How old is she?" The lady looked at me with knife eyes..."you mean HE?" I apologized and pulled a picture from my work station. I said "I forget that Orion is typically a male's name, here is a photo of my Orion". The lady looked at her photo and smiled. She said "I've never even thought of it as a girls name". Mallo would be a cute all white bulldog name. Short for Marshmallow of course.
    Now I finally understand where you get PITA from!!!!

    My wife and I initially looked at the names of Greek Gods like Apollo, Zeus, and Ares, but we wanted something a little more grounded. We tried to avoid human names, but eventually we rellented and we toyed with Sammy and Bruce. However as I looked more and more at the photos from the breeder he seemed to me to look like a Winston. So my wife and I toyed with it and we really liked and so did all of our family members. Later on when someone was petting Winston at the park they asked if it was because of Winston Churchill, that never even ocurred to me, but I said, "yeah sure!"

    Butler got his name because the night that he was found wandering the streets, the butler bulldogs were playing duke in a basketball championship game. the rescuer who picked him up rescued another boy that night as well, and named him duke.
    I get asked if i named him butler because he has a white glove, i think that is a cute idea too!

In short, top gear = bf's fave show, stig = 'The Stig" = all white = just like my Stiggy!
    @savemejeebus Ah ha!!!!! Everytime I looked at that name I always wondered if he was named after Top Gear!! Now I have the answer!

    @kazzy220 - lol. Yay, another top gear fan =). It's funny everybully's name suits him/her. I can't ever see Stig not being Stiggy, or even your Daddy not being Daddy. Great dedication by the way.

    This is an old thread but I love it! Thinking maybe some of us newer peeps would like to tell the story behind their bully names! I'll start! well..we let our granddaughter Ayden..age 7...make a list of potential names. Then we voted on it! Democracy in action! She had 200 names.. and some were...well let's just say very creative! Dave and I narrowed the never ending list down to 5 names and Jake won! Naw....WE won..cuz we have Jake!

    sarah's nickname cow started as a joke from the movie sweet home alabama. Sarah has this thing where she will sit down and then fling herself onto her back. no laying down and rolling over for her. It is so funny to see her sitting next to me on the couch and then before i know it she has flung herself onto her back. I had just saw that movie sweet home alabama and it reminded me so much of the part where she had cow tipped when she was younger. I made up this joke about sarah and cow tipping and showed it to my bf when he got home. it was so funny and we laughed our heads off that somehow the name cow just stuck after that. so now she is sarah or cow or cow cow. funny the places our pets names can come from.
