Of course, but it sounds silly to me  :)  Did you know that there's an extinct castle and settlement in South Slovakia (on the borders with Hungary) named Kokot http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kokot_(castle) ? But Turks destroyed it in the 16th century. Actually, it is present-day Štúrovo that the first record from 1075 involves Kakath name for the town. We know two things – the current horrible vulgarism as kokot is (sorry for using it, but I have to write it somehow) existed in the 11th century. And, it is a Slavic word which means a rooster, so it proves that the inhabitants of present-day Štúrovo were Slovaks back to the 11th century. Now Štúrovo has a large Magyar minority.

I lived most my life in the suburb called proudly Kokociniec (kokot's place), I hope this doesn't make me a kokot :D

Anyway here kokot is this:

To Slovaks those are pretty funny, however we use a similar word for a tap –kohútik (a little rooster).
