Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Confirmation of Mother's Maiden Name

Hi, I want to confirm what I think is a maiden name of a mother on a Birth Registry. The child is Helen Lochead, father John, mother Marion. I think Marion's maiden name looks like Cook? I have attached an extract from the document.

Family History Beginners Board / The word/name Baiddey

I have a 2nd Great Grandmother that I have found in the 1851 Scottish Census listed as Mary Baiddey Taylor. Does Baiddey mean 'baby' as she was only 5 months old at the time. I cannot find her birth record from searching on the Scotlands People website. Although her surname is Taylor on the census I know that her mother's husband William Taylor died in February 1849 so he cannot be the father. Any other clues for searching her birth record would be appreciated.

Was it common for people to have two surnames in Scotland, e.g. Mary Taylor Smith and if so are there any rules, i.e. mother and father not married so both surnames of parents used or were there other reasons?
