Bulldogs were bred to fight bulls. That's right, real live bulls. Their intimidating appearance and reluctance to ever, ever compromise suits this original mission.
Many bulldog owners want their bully's name to reinforce the tough guy and tough gal image.
For Male Bulldogs
Butch - a name held by male English Bulldogs since many generations past. The name for any bulldog in any cartoon since the days of Bugs Bunny.
Rambo - no explanation necessary.
Rocko - don't mess with Rocko! One of our users submitted another potential spelling as "Rocco". Both work.
Bluto - both Popeye and Animal House, you could use the full name Blutarsky.
Headbutt - only for the most extreme of owners.
Sarge - very masculine and fitting bulldog name someone sent in. Adding "Sargeant" to another name is always good for a bulldog name, like Sgt. Mac.
Deebo - great name sent in for those who love the movie "Friday". Another user sent in Mongo, the guy who punched out the horse in "Blazing Saddles".
Hugo - user submitted, with added comment "because he is the BOSS". We get it.
Big (Insert Name) - you can also take any of the plain folk bulldog names and add "Big". Big Gus, Big Al, Big Fred.
Spike - an obvious choice often sent in by users.
Bruno - another great bulldog name with good Mafia connections.
For Female Bulldogs
Ethel - a name to fit any female bulldog.
Rosie - Rosie O'Donnell kinda looks semi bulldogish, no? At least has many of the same personality traits...
Agnes - awesome name for a female bulldog.
Bertha - ah yes. Big Bertha.
Bernadette - Bernadette, the name for a girl that could kick a guy's butt.
Agatha - this name perfectly fits a female bulldog puppy.
