100+ Unique Bulldog Names (Plus,Tips for Naming Your Bulldog)

unique bulldog names

With thousands of names to choose from, finding the perfect monicker for your bulldog can sometimes feel overwhelming. Luckily, naming a bulldog isn’t like naming a child.There’s no need to worry about social acceptance (the other dogs won’t tease your bulldog on the playground if he has a weird name), and this can free you to be more creative and make a unique or even wacky name choice. So long as you’re comfortable with the name and your bulldog responds well to it, then you’re set.

But for those who’d like to go the extra mile and find a truly unique name that no other bulldog baby at the dog park will have, here is a list of 120 cool and unusual bulldog names as well as tips on how to pick the perfect name for your pet.

How to Pick a Name for Your Bulldog

  • Pick a name your bulldog will easily recognize

Dogs respond best to names that are one-to-two syllables, so select a name that’s short. Even if you choose a longer name to start, you’ll likely end up shortening it over time—Yelling “Come here, Snuggles von LovesALot” across a dog park can get old, fast.

Also, dogs respond to names with common, familiar sounds. Names with “ch,” “sh,” “k” or names that end with a long “e” sound or short “a” sound—like “Shelly” or “Kika,” for instance, will likely get your dog’s attention quicker than “Zufu” or “Xander.”

  • Choose a name you’re comfortable shouting in a dog park

This perhaps goes without saying, but yelling a name like “Darth Vadar!” in a crowded dog park might earn you some odd looks from your fellow pet owners. Consider your own comfort level with zany names and choose carefully.

  • Avoid names that sound like commands

Avoid naming your bulldog anything that rhymes with or sounds similar to a common command, such as “No,” “Sit,” “Stay,” “Down,” or “Come.” That may seem like obvious advice, but it’s worth thinking twice about, as dogs aren’t always able to differentiate between similar sounds. Names like “Joe” or “Mo” can sound too much like “no,” for example, and might confuse your bulldog.

  • Consider your bulldog’s heritage

Oftentimes it’s fun to name a bulldog a traditional English or French name. For an “English Bulldog,” you can call him Henry, Arthur, Harry Potter or Merlin, for example. For a French bulldog, names like “Delphine” or “Louis” might be a fitting choice.

  • Wait a few days before choosing a name

If you’ve just brought your new bulldog home, you may want to wait a couple of days before selecting a name. This will give you a chance to get to know your pup and become familiar with his personality, which you can use for inspiration in the naming process.

  • Consider your pup’s personality and appearance
