    I'm not really a fan. Benjamin Brock is borderline for me (a bit too much like Benjamin Button), but Ben Brock is not so nice, imho...

    Makes me think of Benjamin Bratt (so gorgeous!) so I like it and I generally love alliteration. With a 1 syllable surname there isn't much you can do since many nicknames are 1 syllable also. Ben Brock sounds fine to me but who knows, he may prefer being called Benny, Benji, or just Benjiman

    My thoughts on alliteration are that so long as the starting vowels/sounds aren't the same (so for you, a 'bro'/'brah' sound) then it works. (second 'rule' for me is to avoid alliteration if the last name is a word/occupation name).
    I think Benjamin is great with it, and agree that I'd like Bennett too.

    I'm not a fan of alliteration but the full name Benjamin is ok with Br.ock. However, the nn Ben is too abrupt with your surname. It's the same situation for Daniel - the fuller name works much better with your ln than the nickname.
    All the best,
    Mischa.
