Hi. I am doing a little research on this for a project.

By "jock" I mean "athlete":

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jock_(stereotype)

Especially those musclebound types you see in high school or went to high school with, who are stuck on themselves and are into sports.

A bully is a person who habitually seeks to harm or intimidate those whom they perceive as vulnerable.

Jocks are often stereotyped as bullies but not all jocks are bullies. Anyone can be a bully.

I am trying to find definitive sources for both common and/or stereotypical names for jocks and bullies. I am aware of the fact there's a recently formed companion dog breed called the "American Bully":

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Bully

When I was searching for names for bullies I was finding sites that list names for the dog breed.

Please help- thank you.

Like I said, anyone can be a bully. One does not have to be a jock to be a bully.

When I think of a bully I think of a thug - someone who just picks on people who are different.

School bullies often fit under this image.

A stereotypical beach bully is the big hulking guy who comes along and kicks sand in a little guy's face.

@JGoldman10,
Jock is a slang term for a Scotsman.

@izzythepush,
I am aware of that, and it's capitalized when referring to a Scotsman. There's a handful of other meanings for "jock":

I am using it here in American English to mean "athlete".

@izzythepush,
I have to remember there are a number of non-Americans who use this site. Jespah told me a non-American founded this site.

I should qualify the term "American" when I want Americans to respond to certain threads.

I apologize if my use of the terms "foreigner" or "foreigners" offended you.

Why do some Europeans use the terms "furreigner" or "furreigners" when referring to Americans?

@Linkat,
"Brock" sounds like a bully's or a jock's name. So does "Spike" for some reason.

Biff Tannen was the name of the bully in the first two Back To The Future movies.

Brock Samson is the name of the bodyguard in The Venture Bros.

When a man wears a thong it is called a jock strap. It was first marketed by the Jockey Company about 1920 and has been a badge of office among high school athletes ever since. It is so common that all athletes are called jock strappers, or just jocks. The genuine Jockey article is made with a rubberized fabric that might chafe your leg. If that happens put corn starch on it.

As an old cross country runner I approve of this method.
