Same Name, Two Different Reasons

I met a girl last night whose boyfriend just got a new puppy named: KUMA! I couldn’t believe it. We were all talking about dogs and she mentioned that her boyfriend just got a new American Bulldog puppy named Kuma. I did a double-take and asked her to repeat that and I told her that our dogs had the same name. How he named his dog: they went on the Internet to try and find names that would aptly fit a dog of that size and stature (stocky, strong, up to 125 pounds) and liked Kuma as a name. How we named our dog: Bob and I used to play Tekken when we were dating and there was this character on the video game that was a big bear named Kuma. We always thought that would be a good name for a dog and said that when we got our first dog, we would name him/her that. It was later on that we found out that Kuma=bear. Their method, boring. Our method, dorky. Either way, it was exciting to find someone else whose dog had the same name.
