Nice name

"Get another of Paul de Kock's. Nice name he has": Molly's mind is no less filled with organs than her husband's is. Her remark in Calypso would be less funny had Joyce simply made the name up, but in fact Monsieur de Kock was a popular writer of mid-19th century Paris. In addition to the lewd double entendre, "Paul de" sounds like Molly's affectionate nickname for her husband: Poldy. So this is a "nice name" in several senses.
