Maybe it's the intimidating presence and no nonsense stare. Maybe it's because bulldogs are jowly and usually overweight, just like the cast of the Sopranos. Whatever the reason, stereotypically Mafia sounding names make great names for bulldog puppies.
For Male Bulldogs
Bruno - awesome tough guy name for a bulldog. User submitted.
Carlo - after Carlo Gambino.
Frankie - love this name for a bulldog, also has that "average guy" sound.
Guido - no offense!
Giuseppe - can be "Gus" for short.
Sausage and Peppers - this name for a pair of bulldogs is also on the bulldog food names page, but it has good Italian connotations.
