Thanks cor  it is an old name from the Gamecock tug company on the River Thames,in the days gone by when there was 5 or 6 towing companies   Gamecock tugs all had name ending in Cock, ie stormcock.ocean cock.crested cock, atlantic cock ,moorcock,watercock,they all seemed to be some kind of water fowl or bird.  Geo.

Thanks Model tugman.
Thanks for the explanation.
But what I meant, some words mean something else in another language.
For example, in dutch.
So I thought, what a strange name.
