Does the Cockerel have a name?

Does the Cockerel of of our Clan badge have a name or a history?  Having a 4 
(nearly 5) year old daughter has just reminded us of the Cockerel 
"Chanticleer" or "Chanticler" of the Canterbury Tales by Chaucer.  For a full 
version of the story see http://www.hobrad.com/ctsampl2.htm .  The origin of 
the the name is Norman French.  Could the "Cleer" or "Cler" be a reference to 
St Clair?  Does anyone have anything on this?

Yours aye
