English Bulldog Names

Your getting your English Bulldog Puppy soon and need to find the coolest name for him/her so we wrote the perfect list to help you get this exciting, but daunting task in the bag! So what’s in a name anyway? Everything of course! I think it’s true, the names we choose for our pets say a whole lot about our character.

Some of us consistently choose names that will exhibit our longing to be seen amongst friends and family as wealthy, smart or popular. I guess I’d have to admit that’s where me and my family fit in, but with a smidge of creativity and a touch of American Pride. We have fun naming our English Bulldogs such names as, Liberty Bell(Libby), Independence(Indy), California(Cally) and Lilly Billy Silly Dilly. Ok, I don’t know what happened to our patriotic theme when we named Lily, but you get the point, right lol?

Funny Bulldog Names

Then there are those of us that really make life fun and interesting sometimes with a non-stop satirical attitude like my Brother, Steven Weese, who thinks it would be funny to name his dog after himself, except with a ridiculous spelling. PH-teven is what he’d call his Bulldog if he had one, supposedly because of the Bulldog’s lisp causing lower jaw bone.

Reader Asks: How Can I Get My Bulldog to Know His Name?

Did you hear about the guy who named his Bulldog, Diogi? That’s (D-O-G), get it? Or maybe you’d get a kick out of naming your English Bulldog, 5 Miles, so you can tell everyone you walk your Bulldog 5 Miles every day-my personal favorite.

Tough Bulldog Names

Bulldogs, although extremely gentle and passive with children and other animals, do indeed possess a very bold look. This tough guy image is probably due in part to their enormous head, massive physique and menacing over-bite. Don’t let this smoosh faced rebel fool you! Unless you’ve found yourself in the way of his barreling 50lb frame and a squirrel, the only thing he’s likely to break is your heart.

Despite the so ugly, they’re cute status, it can be a lot of fun dubbing these warmhearted meat heads with a name that screams, Tough as Nails! Everyone loves a bit of irony!

    I vote for Porkchop or T-Bone, or maybe I’m just hungry.  How about Roadblock? 

    I’m thinking of Melrose because he is an English Lord in the Richard Jury series by Martha Grimes.  I’ve never known a dog by this name, he’s an aristocrat, he’s British, a bit lazy, a character, has expensive tastes, and it doesn’t sound like any other word I will frequently use in conversation.

    Our boy who just turned 1 today is named Captain Angus Hook, we generally just call him Angus. It was a compromise between myself and my 5 year old daughter who wanted to name him Captain Hook. I had my heart set on Angus, so Captain Angus Hook it is. My childhood bulldog was named T-Bone. I flew from Houston to Ohio to get this guy, and my childhood bulldog was from Ohio as well, I grew up in Akron and Findlay. I swear the best bulldogs come from Ohio, ya’ll are just breeding them so well!!! Keep up the great work Dan!!!

  • Charlie Zopfi

    We just got our second bulldog on September 29, 2014, after losing our 7 year old suddenly due to the vet prescribing the wrong medication.  This is our first bulldog puppy since our first was a year old when we adopted him.  We named our new boy “Bentley”.  It just came to us and really seemed to fit him, not to mention the Bentley is a very expensive and prestigious English car.  LOL.  Whatever you name your Bulldog pup you will have years of great fun and love!

  • Mary

    I always thought if I could get a Bull dog, I would name him Otis because I think they have a face similar to “Otis the drunk” on the old Andy Griffith show!
