How To Name Your Bull Terrier

Settling on a name is one of the toughest parts of bringing a new dog home, but rest assured, the perfect name is out there and there are certain things you can consider that will make the decision easier.

A great place to start is to consider how your dog looks. Bull Terriers, for example, are of a stocky, muscular build with an egg-shaped head and triangle-shaped eyes, which gives them a somewhat rugged appearance. For this reason, you might consider something “tough” sounding or something edgy.

You’ll also want to get to know your Bull Terrier’s personality and any quirks they have. Bull Terriers are typically sweet, family-oriented dogs in spite of their rough-and-tough appearance, so it could be fun to go for something that contrasts with the way they look, like “Teddy”, for example. Bull Terriers are also dogs that love to have fun, so you might consider something that makes you giggle every time you have to say it.

Another great idea is to get inspiration from your Bull Terrier’s English origins. These dogs were once very popular with English gentlemen, so something quintessentially British and/or posh sounding could be perfect for them.
