Bloody brilliant both of them.

SouthMum Wed 10-Jun-09 11:21:55

Sorry no, unless they are potential names for a dog.....

Pinkjenny Wed 10-Jun-09 11:22:06

Er, no. Unless she actually lives in Southfork with Miss Ellie.

is this for a dog?

Middle names Strap or Gonads?

Jock = West Highland Terrier
Buster = boxer/bulldog

PuppyMonkey Wed 10-Jun-09 11:22:38

Oh, is this a wind up?

<<disappointed now>>

Use both. Jock Buster. He'll have a reputation for having huge genitalia.

goomum Wed 10-Jun-09 13:18:47

No, she is completely serious. Jock as alternative to overused Jack. Buster after Buster Martin the supposedly oldest man to run the London marathon.

My husbands cock is called Jock grin

Whether this thread is serious or not, I love both of the names and they were both on my Names List. DH hated them.

SouthMum Wed 10-Jun-09 13:23:37

You must tell her NO NO NO!!! The poor little mite will hate her for it and she will get bored of having to wash the eggs and flour from his hair and the gob off his back... and also having to buy new glasses when his are inevitably trodden on.

I don't understand the craze for shite names at the moment, its as if the parents deliberately want their kids to get bullied and IMO should be considered some form of abuse.

SouthMum Wed 10-Jun-09 13:26:32

LOL MaryPoppins.

Mine is called HAHAHAHAHA

(my DP's cock not my cock!!)

I can understand Buster being thought of as a canine name as it was originally a nickname (and only popularised by Buster Keaton).

I prefer Jock myself as it is a genuine Scottish variation on the name John or Jack. It is a shame it has been hijacked by jockstrap connotations!

Are there many Jocks in Scotland these days?
Isn't it a slightly derogative term for a Scotsman or an American footie player?

Still think it is quite a cool name though, although we did meet a Gorilla in Bristol Zoo called Jock recently!?!

PuppyMonkey Wed 10-Jun-09 15:53:56

I would like a ds called Jock so I could refer to him as Wee Jock. grin

lotspot Wed 10-Jun-09 20:24:53

I assumed Jock was a typo and you actually meant to ask about the name Jack - i guessing quite a few other people would during his life!!

Jock is american slang
Buster is a dog

Jock Strap?

Buster Blood Vessel?

lowrib Thu 11-Jun-09 01:54:47

If you're serious, go for it. I know a little Buster, it really suits him, he's a lovely kid. Strange names sound - well - strange at fist, but people get used to them, and children grow into them if it's a good name.

So, back to your original question, Buster definitely. Not Jock, that's not a great name at all IMO.

No way. Even pregnancy hormones does not excuse this. Hasn't she heard of Viz? Sorry but no.

cookie100 Thu 11-Jun-09 21:13:42

Surely this is a joke?

wigglybeezer Fri 12-Jun-09 20:39:01

I actually had a dog called Jock.

MaggieBee Fri 12-Jun-09 20:47:09

I think Jock's a great name. Isuggested it and I was laughed into the middle of next week.

I really like both of them blush
