Drain cock, drain valve, petcock.
Unless you're my uncle who called up my dad one time and said, "Joe, I'm lost as to which way to turn the peacock".
My dad almost fell over and said, "I'll be right over". Needless to say my uncle is more at home with a radial arm saw than a rachet. LOL.
I remember once my dad said, "C'mon we're going to your uncle's, let's have some fun". We drove there and my uncle is filthy and he's pissed. Can't get the oil filter off his ' 79 LTD Wagon (at that time). My dad went under there with the wrench and you heard, Squeak, squeak, and then, bing (the filter hitting the pan). My dad came out and said, "all done".
My uncle who was befuddled said, "I was just with that thing for 3 hours, how the f&*(&*(&*ck did you get it off in 10 seconds?"
My dad said, "Guy (my uncle's name), you were turning the filter the wrong way...." LOL.
