Origin of conk3
Examples from the Web for conky
There are some men whose patronymics are swallowed up in their nicknames, and my friend "Conky" is one of these.
Conky sighed, but added more hopefully, "Anyhow, I'm sure Marjorie will rise to the occasion."
Marjorie is certainly less overwhelming in her hospitality, and Conky less prodigal of song.
I don't mind being called 'Conky,' as you know, but it was rather trying to hear him say, 'I hope his nose has stopped growing.'
Word Origin for conk
as in conk out, 1918, coined by World War I airmen, perhaps in imitation of the sound of a stalling motor, reinforced by conk (v.) "hit on the head," originally "punch in the nose" (1821), from conk (n.), slang for "nose" (1812), perhaps from fancied resemblance to a conch (pronounced "conk") shell.
