The American Bully dog breed is the result of a cross between the American Pit Bull Terrier and the American Stafford Terrier. The American Bully is a medium-sized dog, with a powerful head and very strong muscles. Their shocking and even threatening appearance, however, does not match their sweet and loving personality.

This AnimalWised article aims to present you with a list of names for American Bully dogs. We want to help give you some American Bully names to choose from. Don't forget to share with us the one you've chosen and add suggestions for other users in the comments section!

Tips to find the perfect name for your Bully dog

If you want to adopt an American Bully dog, you'll surely spend some time searching for their perfect name. Before moving on to the lists, though, here at AnimalWised we have some tips for finding a name for your dog:

  • Choose a name that's between 1 and 3 syllables long.
  • A name that's too short or too long can be confusing and very difficult to learn. Make it easier for your new pet!
  • Avoid using common words or sounds, since your dog might think you're calling them when you're just having a daily conversation.
  • Avoid very popular names so that they don't get confused when going for a walk at the park.
  • Be original and creative, but also respectful.
  • Choose a name that's easy to pronounce and understand.
  • Like all Pit Bulls, American Bullies look quite scary. If you're often surrounded by children or walk your dog in very crowded places, try not to choose a name that sounds like you've trained your pet to be aggressive. A “Tommy” will make more friends than a “Terminator”.

Of course, this choice is up to you and your family. Why not hold a vote to settle on a name? If you want yet more inspiration, take a look at our list of names for Pit Bull dogs.
