Brock comes from an English surname with several possible meanings:

  • the first is that it comes from Old English broc (badger) which comes from Proto-Celtic *brokkos (badger), likely originating as a nickname for someone who either resembled a badger or had a personality similar to it;
  • it may also be derived from Old French broque or brocke meaning “young stag”, likely given to a young man full of vigor and life;
  • it could also have arisen as a topographical name for someone who lived near a brook via Old English brōc (brook, stream).

Origin: Proto-Celtic, Proto-Indo-European
