    I think Bubba is such an awesome bulldog name. That is one of my nicknames for Samson.

    I have two bulldogs. Vegas is 2 and 1/2 and we got his name from my brother-in-law. I wanted something big and bad like "Capone" my husband wanted "Maximus". We couldn't agree, so it was suggested to us "Vegas". So, we had the bulldog's name, now we just needed the bulldog. Vegas came from a kennel by the name "Addicted 2 bulldogs". So, when we adopted Vegas, his legal name became "Addicted 2 Vegas".
    Orion is our little girl. She is everything that Vegas isn't. She is mouthy. She is daring. She is fearless. She doesn't give up. She's a fighter. We had the name picked out first, then the puppies were born. One girl and one boy. The boy was our pick, but he passed away after 36 hours. He was given the name "Tripoli" and buried with full military honors. When asked if we would take the girl, we agreed and stuck with the name Orion. Orion is one of the largest, most conspicuous and most recognizable constellations in the night sky. Big and bold.........and out there. That's our Orion.

    I wanted a bulldog for the past 10 years, and I always said if I ever get a bulldog, I want a male and his name is going to be Bulldozer, Dozer for short. When I finally decided it was time to get a bulldog, and we went to the breeders house on The Friday before Mothers Day to look at Dozer, they had two pups left a male and a female. We spent about an hour playing on the kitchen floor with the pups, and I fell in love with Dozer, I decided I wanted him, but my husband kept gravitating to his sister, and saying look how cute she is, look she's all white, she's so sweet. I told him I came for a male and I wanted a male and that I had wanted a male named Dozer for forever. We paid for him, and we were to come back on Sunday to pick him up, when we came back, the breeder brought up both dogs, and started to pack them up, I said I wanted the male, and he looked at me and said I thought you wanted both?? I was confused lol. Apparently my husband had phoned the breeder and asked if the female was still available, and said he wanted both. I thought he was crazy, 2 bulldog puppies? He said we cant t leave her here alone, and she is super cute, and so we brought both home. We didn't have a girl name, and my son was trying to pick names with themes, so everyone started giving suggestions, like Elvis and Priscilla, Rocky and Adrienne, Jagger and Bianca, my son liked Rocky and Roxy, but I stood my ground on Bulldozer, and we almost named her Roxie, but then I started thinking of names I liked, I had Ladybug, Chloe, Charlotte ( but that is my nieces name, so I didn't think my brother would appreciate that lol), Zoey, then I started thinking of "B" names, and Blossom came up, and everyone liked it, it was cute like her, it was different, and it suited her, so we started calling her Awesome Blossom. My husband asks me all the time now, if I would have chosen Blossom instead, if I knew her now. I tell him, I had my heart set on a male, so probably wouldn't have considered her at that time, but now that I know them both, I wouldn't be able to choose, because they are both so sweet, gentle, and they have such different personalities, I love them both, and they are both the greatest dogs ever, such cuddle muffins.

    Usko's father's name is Toivo (hope), his mothers name is Lempi (love) so Usko could only be Usko(faith). His official name is Bridgeways Star Of Hope, that too after his dad, for looking the most like him from the puppys.

    My boyfriend's mechanical got his bully 2 weeks before us & when David went to visit Tito in the video he sent me he kept saying how Tubby he was and it just kinda of stuck for us hence Tubby.... His official name though is Duke Tubbington III. I thought he said have a regal name because of his British roots

    When I was young I had best friend named Madison Pickle, she was from Leeds England. Her family always had bulldogs and I loved going over to play with them. The family had to return to England when we were in the sixth grade, and I always had fond memories of the Madison and her family.

    I decided that I would have a EB named "Pickle" someday. I knew I wanted a female pup and I had the name picked out for years - Madison "Pickle".

    I had a huge struggle over what to name my bully girl. I knew she was white, and I just happened to be reading a book that had a white bully named Matilda right before getting her... and that Matilda was just so adorable, my Matilda is named after her
