Hi, dh is very keen on Brock (with traditional middle name). Has anyone called their ds Brock and are you still in love with the name? I do like it and imaging a lovely, gentle, fun little boy but worry if it's a little too unusual?
Thanks grin

I don't think of a human child. I just think badger.

It's a badgers name

Badger. You'd have to be a twat to saddle a human with that.

Brock Lesnar, professional wrestler!

Brock's middle name is Edward, that's traditional.

Badgers...

I'd tend to think badger too but it's not the worst name I've heard on these boards.

I would caution you a bit regarding imagining a personality to go with the name, your baby will be his own person.

Badger

Seriously Toast? Shoot that is the name combo lol! I don't watch wrestling so wasn't copying! Hmm, may have to chat to DH if we have a boy grin!

Brock = Badger sad

Vengeful villain Tommy Brock the badger from Peter Rabbit which is all over Cbeebies!

Kafeeundkuchen Sun 17-Apr-16 13:30:49

Thanks herewegoagain that's true.
Luckily I actually love Badgers, our largest (surviving) carnivore etc...
Name choosing is such a minefield lol! grin luckily I have a while to go so can keep chiming our minds of we need to....

I liked this name but could imagine the Brock-the-cock name calling at secondary, so we didn't use it.

It does mean badger, but so what?

Badger or surname.

Pokemon grin

I grew up with a Brock. He was the coolest guy, so by default I associate that name with cool guys.

Kafeeundkuchen Sun 17-Apr-16 13:37:25

Yes hadn't thought of that Indand. Yeah I'm with you on the Badger so what bit. It's interesting to hear views though.

caker Sun 17-Apr-16 13:47:55

I like Brock, also how about Breck or Brecken?

RavioliOnToast Sun 17-Apr-16 13:48:52

I just remember the guy from Pokemon.

BertrandRussell Sun 17-Apr-16 13:52:39

Why would you use the name of a pretty savage carnivore for a lovely gentle fun little boy? And bear in mind that he will be a little boy for a fleeting moment of his life......

OublietteBravo Sun 17-Apr-16 13:55:19

I met one on holiday last year - he was DS's age (so 10).

I instantly associated Brock with badger, but DH didn't and neither did the DC.

honeysucklejasmine Sun 17-Apr-16 13:57:53

I would say Pokemon too. Or assume you're American.

UntilTheCowsComeHome Sun 17-Apr-16 13:57:55

I immediately think of Brock Lesnar. I even say it in the same voice as Paul Hayman.

Nice name though.
