This was my favorite boys name for a brief period when I was kid and didn't know any better. Now I think it's just kind of square and unimaginative, like a big...block...of something.

My brother's name is Brock. He was named after our father's childhood hero, the Australian racing legend Peter Brock, who passed away a number of years ago. My brother's IQ isn't low, in fact he is a very much an academic and an old soul. He's very energetic and has a spicy sense of humour. But he's also a gentleman, who'll help his grandmother down the stairs or carries her groceries, a true Southern gentleman. And not an airhead of any kind.

Ehh name for me- just one of those surname type popular names like Mason, Hudson, Kayden etc. that I don't have particular feelings about.

I second the image of big football player jock of previous poster. But my main image of Brock is the clucking people make when mocking someone for being a chicken- it sounds like "Brooooccckk, brocck, brroooock!" to me, not sure why I have this image in my head XD

Lauren Dale Says:


This is my absolute favorite boys name. It's so strong and unique! It reminds me of a caveman, and I mean that in the best way. So sad that everyone associates it with pokemon.

No offense to any Brocks out there, but all I can picture when I hear the name is a big football player jock with a buzz cut and a low IQ.

KatieElle Says:


Rocktard (as in the Shaytards) is named Brock and what an adorable Tasmanian Devil of a child he is! Otherwise, not a favourite of mine though.

NaomiNY Says:


I automatically think of Brock from "Pokemon".

AprilRobin Says:


I dated a Brock once everyone called him Brock the Block because he was a big guy and not that bright. He was a nice guy though if you got pass the part of him not being the brightest bulb on the tree.

SunKissedChild Says:


I really don't like this name. There was a kid in my class in primary school named Brock and everyone called him Block or Brick... Didn't help that he was extremely overweight and not especially bright.

SparkleNinja18 Says:


There's a really annoying kid who lives across the street from me with this name. Everyone would always make fun of him, calling him Brock-ali and Brock Obama/O'llama.

orphanedhanyou Says:


People are actually skipping Brock and using straight Badger as a name.... Can't get past he negative badger/pester, but I did nickname my niece Emily 'Badgermily' [ not due to being a pest ; P ]
