Meaning:Badger; Brook
The British name Brock, meaning “badger,” was usually used as a last name in medieval England. This name derives from a nickname that was given to people who supposedly looked badger-like, for example, with a stripe of white hair. However, this name can be remembered for more than its looks! The fierce and cunning honey badger holds the Guinness Book of Records title of “World's Most Fearless Creature.” With their resourceful skills and thick skin, honey badgers aren't afraid to take on anything that comes their way. But even with just a regular badger as inspiration, your little Brock will shock others with their determination and unwavering mindset. Brock may also be a variation of the English and Germanic Brook, referring to the peaceful body of water.
