    We looked at Amber and decided her name needed to fit her looks at first and came up with Amber Dagney; Amber was because she is a fawn color and looks amber in the sunlight, her middle name Dagney is one of the characters in Ayn Rand's Book titled Atlas Shrugged. As for Ruby, we already had one named Amber and that is also a precious stone so we went with the precious stone theme and came up with Ruby and her middle name is Violet. It really should be Ruby the Roo because we call her Ruby-Roo most of the time.

    The day the rescue dropped Chumley off I had set in my mind I was going to name him Rex after Rex Ryan the coach of the NY Jets because Im a huge Jet fan he has a face like a bulldog. When the car door opened and I heard "Meet Chumley" I said that name has got to stay! (although I found out later there was a character from a show called Pawn Stars named Chumlee he was named after.)

    My hubby had wanted a bully for years, so when he finally got his baby he named her "Bella" italian for beautiful
    Of course when she had her pups she had 8 OF THEM… so we decided to give them all british names:

    BOYS : Winston, Sherlock, Cromy (for Cromwell), Bentley, and Wellie (for Beef Wellington!!!)
    GIRLS: Chelsea, Beatrice, and Winnie (for Winnie the Pooh)

    RIP Wellie, Bella, Winston & Roxie

    I spent the journey home from the breeders trying to come up with a great name for the adorable pooch in my arms. My friend and I kept looking at him and saying names but none of them seemed quite right.

    When we got home we popped him on the floor to sniff and explore and put the TV on at the same time. Immediately the 'eye of the tiger' song came on and my friend and I looked at each other and said 'Rocky' at the same time. It was perfect for him and we danced with him to the song!

    Officially he's Rocky D as my surname is Dickinson. We always used to call my late Nanny 'Mrs D' and 'Rocky D' just seemed to fit! Xx

    I knew it! Chumlee makes the show comical, and Chumley's pics are always hilarious, so its a perfect match. Although Chumley's super handsome, so not a perfect match that way. :wink:

    Stig's named after The Stig from the BBC car show called Top Gear. Stig's registered names is actually 'The Stig' ... the breeder chuckled at that one. It's my bf's fave show and we thought it suited him because he's all white in colour, just like the character.

    Punkin joined a couple of years ago, from a friend's friend, and seeing he was 4, we felt it would be best the his name should stay. We thought it was girly at first but as time flew by, we realized Punkin's feisty personality suits his name.
