Elegant & Fashionable Male French Bulldog Names

Since it started in 19th century France, the French Bulldog has always been a fashionable pet.

The breed descends from the English Bulldog. In 1835, the sport of bull-baiting was outlawed (thank heavens!), so the Bulldog went from being a sporting breed to a companion breed. To reduce their size, some dogs were crossed with terriers and others with pugs.

At the same time, the Industrial Revolution displaced many people, including the lace workers from Nottingham, who emigrated to France – and brought their pet Miniature Bulldogs with them.

Before you knew it, English breeders began sending over Bulldogs they considered too small or had faults such as ears that stood up, and the French couldn’t get enough of these adorable pups. Everyone from society ladies to creative types like artists, writers, and fashion designers wanted one of these stylish, in-vogue animals.

This is still the trend today, with actors, models, and icons regularly posing with their French Bulldogs.

To celebrate their enduring status, here are fashionable and elegant male names worthy of the great French Bulldog:

How Do You Pick The Right Name?

With so many options, how do you know which name is right for your French Bulldog?

After years of helping people pick the right pet name, here are some tips we’ve picked up:

  1. Make sure it rolls off the tongue. Some names are fantastic on paper but tough to pronounce in everyday life.
  2. Say it out loud. Can you imagine loudly calling for your puppy with this name? If the answer is no, skip it.
  3. Does it fit your dog? You might have the perfect name picked out, but it doesn’t fit your dog’s personality or appearance; that’s a miss. Make sure it’s the right name for your dog.
  4. Trust your gut. When you find the right name, you’ll know it!

    i think corndog would be a good name if you would like to add it onto your list :)

  2. blue

    just an idea to anyone reading these comments i don’t recommend naming your dog after food, you totally can i’m just saying i personally don’t recommend it. it’s strange to name it like french fries and then say “Come here french fries” obviously totally up to you but personally not the best decision for a name. :))
