There appear to be three main theories how the name originated. The first refers to the fact that Clyde’s support and possibly players were drawn from the Bridgeton area. Renowned for their pugnacious character the support were ‘wee bullies’ and hence the Bully Wee. The second theory takes a European dimension. Apparently some Frenchmen were at Barrowfield around 1900. Upon a disputed goal they cried: “But il’y, oui?” This translates as: “Their goal, yes”, but sounds very like “Bully Wee”. The third theory is that “Bully” was a Victorian synonym for first-rate/good/worthy. As Clyde were a small club it seems obvious that “Bully Wee Clyde” must have rolled off the tongue.
