More than you wanted to know -

Cockburn (Co-barn - use a Scottish accent to say it) is a Scottish surname that originated in the Borders region of the Scottish Lowlands. In the United States most branches of the same family have adopted the simplified spelling 'Coburn'; other branches have altered the name slightly to 'Cogburn'. The French branch of the family uses the spelling 'de Cockborne', with the middle 'ck" being pronounced.

Derived from the Old English word 'cocc' meaning 'moor-cock', 'wild bird' or 'hill', with 'burn' derived from the old word 'burna' meaning 'brook' or 'stream'.

Nice to hear this explanation! Sounds a bit like the differences between Loughead and Lockheed.
Or Worcestershire sauce; over here on the continent, we always try to pronounce it as wor-cester-shire-sauce - try it


On a side note: Fokker isn't pronounced as Faw-ker (as in oat meal) but rather as Fucker with a short 'O', as in October.
