Perhaps ask her to consider what she will tell him if he comes home from school crying because he was teased. I do not necessarily think one should avoid a name just because the child could be teased (Example, we named our son Peter which could lead to immature teasing). But unless the parents have a strong conviction for choosing that name, it might cause the family more stress than they realize. We chose our name because we love the Biblical connection, and we think it is a strong, handsome name. If our son ever gets teased, we will tell him about Peter the apostle and how he was the rock on which Jesus built His Church. If your sister does not have a very strong reason for wanting to use the name Brock, she might want to reconsider. If she has no other children, it might be hard for her at this point to imagine how much her heart will break if he is teased. Best wishes!
