If you are thinking of bringing home a French Bulldog we recommend that you look into adopting one, rather than buying a puppy. If you go for a puppy, then find a breeder that uses parents with longer than average muzzles, to reduce the chances of breathing and overheating issues that are so common with these friendly, cuddly pups.
What Should I Name My French Bulldog?
A dog’s name isn’t just their identity, it’s normally a command too. Most people want their dog to know it’s name, and by that they mean they want them to come when it’s said. That means picking a puppy name is a bit more complicated than any other type of pet.
Here are some simple rules that will help you to select a name that will be easy for your dog to learn.
- Use one or two syllables only
- Make sure it’s not similar to another family member
- Don’t use a word that sounds like another command like ‘sit’ or ‘heel’
- Use a word with hard consonants
- Go for a name with long vowel sounds

Naming Your French Bulldog
French Bulldogs have wonderful personalities, but sadly can suffer from a lot of nasty health conditions. We therefore highly recommend that if you want a French Bulldog, you adopt one from a shelter or rescue center. You’ll be more likely to know how badly they are impacted by breathing issues, and you won’t be helping to prop up an industry based around breeding sadly unwell puppies.
