So despite the awkward (comedy) surname that brought so many of you to tears of laughter, we think we've got our boys name down to 2 options. So, what do you think?

Marcus Aldcock


Joseph Aldcock

Potential issues with either and/or dare I ask for more suggestions???!!

Also, any ideas for middle names welcome.

Thank you!

I think Joseph Aldcock sounds lovely.

I prefer Marcus to Joseph, because I'd rather my son be called Mark than Joe.

The two nicknames are very likely, so which nickname do you prefer?

Marcus for me. Really not a fan of Joseph. Think its because I hate it when people pronounce it Jo-Ziff instead of Jo-Seff.

I like both names, but I choose Joseph.

You have a hard sounding surname, Joseph softens that.

To many hard c's in the Marcus aldcock.

I really wouldn't go for Marcus. Only because M Aldcock could be turned into mould-cock. Mouldy cock etc etc

And I love Joe. Fab name

I'm assuming your surname is pronounced oldcock though

The surname i

Id go for Joseph, because, depending on the way Marcus is pronounced you've got both arse and cock in your name, kind of. Sorry!

I might be biased but I knew a Marcus and we did call him Mark-arse.

The Al should be pronounced the same as in certain other surnames such as Aldridge or Allsop or as in Alton.
People often get it wrong though!

On my previous thread someone said M Aldcock could be mauled cock?? And now mould cock... Hmm.. Maybe Marcus isn't so good after all!!

Joseph sounds better with surname .... Nice smile

Our DS1 is Joseph. We live in Scotland and it is not that common here. I absolutely adore it. He gets called his full name and Joe which I also love. Go for it!

They are both lovely but I prefer Marcus.

BlueStarsAtNight Fri 07-Feb-14 11:39:37

I prefer Joseph.

Unfortunately I also thought of Mauled cock and mould cock!

Joseph gets my vote too x

Joseph is lovely, really lovely - I may be biased as it's the name of our DS.
