Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
Gives me the impression of a self-absorbed high school jock, kind of like Chad. Also reminds me of Brock Turner.
Other than that, I just don't like the sound of it.

Out of all the names, this? It’s unique but personally not attractive.

Very unattractive name.

Sorry Brocks, but it's an astonishingly ugly name.

Brock, for me, is a great name. It fits someone who is strong and courageous. I recommend naming your child this if you plan on raising them to be a badass.

Why in the namesakes tab do they not have Brock from Pokemon.

It sounds like a belch to me.

My brother's name is Brock, it is also my dad's middle name as well, although he goes by Brock instead of using his first name the majority of the time. I think it's different because it isn't all that common. My family must love uncommon names since my name is Storm and my daughter's is Alura.

I really don't care for the name. Can't stand it!

I've never met a single Brock who was a jock in my life, hell I've never actually met another Brock other than myself in my life. And speaking of the jock thing I am the most introverted, quiet, and lazy Brock you will ever meet. Though you probably won't.

A famous fictional bearer of this (horrible) name was Brock Reynolds in the American soap "The Young and the Restless" - he was played by Canadian actor Beau Kazer.

As an English verb, "Brock" means "taunt."

Brock Rumlow, antagonist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe 'Captain America' films.

I love this name! It's such a strong name!

Not just the broccoli association or even the character from Pokemon, Brock sounds like a sound a bird would make. Like some tropical bird; parot, McCaw, tucan etc

Like many others I think of Brock off Pokémon and the wrestler Brock Lesnar...

This really suits Brock from the Pokemon Anime because he is a ROCK type gym leader and it sounds like Rock...

I respect this name as a perfectly fine surname. I think its meaning of 'badger' is rather endearing and in that sense makes it go along with all the other animal names (names meaning things like bear, wolf, lion, lamb, etc).

However, I personally hate this as a first name because of how it sounds and looks. The sound is just too short, clipped, and harsh for me. I like strong masculine names, but this is just too 'sharp'-sounding, and it makes it awkward somehow. It is not what I would call a "strong masculine name". The fact that it rhymes with, and is unfortunately now often identified with, stereotypical 'jocks' only makes me like it even less (this is partly because it only came into use as a first name in the past couple decades). It also has the feeling and association of being an "American" and trendy name. Meaning no offense to those with this name or who like it, of course, but I think this name is better left as a surname and not used a first name.

I'm genuinely confused as to why people like this name. Maybe this is a secret to the older generations, but to teenagers this name is a stereotypical name for a super-popular dumb-as-nails jock. Just like Chad and anything else the popular guys in movies are always named.

I find this a very good, strong name for a boy, not too common, not too harsh. Of course, a lot of people seem to be negatively associating this name with the Pokemon character, but I used to watch Pokemon when I was a little girl, and I seriously don't think that's a bad thing.

My eldest son's name is Brock, and I think it is an amazing name. I've had so many people tell me that it makes them think of someone who is strong, smart, handsome and kind. My sister calls him the strong B-Rock, because he 'takes care' of his little cousins (she has only girls), I think it's great.

This is the surname of legendary Australian motor racing driver Peter Brock (1945-2006), also known as "The King of the Mountain".

I suspect that Australian boys with this name are named in honour of Peter Brock, and not after badgers.

A name that anyone would be proud to bear here, and I doubt it would result in much serious teasing.
keepitreal  1/26/2011
I like the name Brock. It's different than what is popular today but it's not weird. But it's still an okay name.
― Anonymous User  12/27/2009
I never liked this name, especially after it became associated with the Pokémon character. It makes me think of how Brock fell in love with pretty much every girl he encountered.
bananarama  10/26/2009
Brock is a character in Pokemon. He is the Pewter City Gym Leader in the Gameboy games and a traveling partner to Ash Ketchum in the Anime TV show. He is a very wise character who wants to be a Pokemon breeder!

Brock Peters, African-American actor and singer (born George Fisher).
Kosta  5/5/2009
I really dislike the sound of it but I'm a big UFC fan and Brock Lesnar has changed my impression somewhat. I think it's a very strong and masculine name but the sound is unfortunately still rather unattractive.

This name makes me think of Pokemon.

There is this kid I know his name is Brock. When a friend of mine said his name I thought she said "rock". Brock is a dumb name, and I'm sorry, but, I suggest that you don't name your child this name.
RadishQueen  6/25/2008
My boyfriend of 8 years is Brock and I love it, he also loves it, we had friends who wanted to name their child Brock, and my boyfriend if he has his way would like to name our child Brock Jr. I think it is a good strong name.
lee-anne  5/13/2008
The modern Irish word for badger is broc. I'm pretty sure.
Katheros  4/27/2008
No offense, but this name sounds like the name of a very dumb, muscular, über-masculine guy.
slight night shiver  4/20/2008
I don't really care one way or the other about the name Brock, but in my math class, we have a kid named Brock. Everyone calls him "Brock-the-Rock" and I think it is kinda cool but funny. Sometimes people call him "Block" too which is kinda annoying. One thing I definitely don't like about the name Brock is that it sounds too much like "Block" which reminds me of legos. Yea hope that helped somebody decide whether or not to name their kid Brock!

It's the sound a chicken makes "Brock, Brock, Brock" lol.

This name has a very unpleasant sound to it. Like you're choking. On a piece of broccoli, perhaps.
Starla Roxanne  9/17/2006
The broccoli comment is SO original! That may have been the most CLEVER little comment I've ever seen! Give yourself a pat on the back! I think it's a damn fine name. Obviously.
Brock24  1/9/2007
I think Brock is a pretty nice name, although I can see WHY people might think of broccoli when they hear it. The way she said it was pretty stupid, though, if you ask me.

This name makes me think of the Pokemon character.

A famous bearer is Brock Lesnar, a former NCAA wrestling champion and former three-time WWE champion.
Weirdo87  4/4/2006
I was told that the meaning is "to badger" not just the aminal. Used in a sentence "thow shall brocc me for thine answer?" or "The baby is broccing to get out."
