Könchog = most precious thing
Drakpa = noise, rumor, talk,most distinguished person
Tingdzin = contemplation, profound meditation.

This is according to the Tibetan-English Dictionary by Jaschke

Yes, I was wondering how it would be said colloquially.

It is not usually translated the way you are looking for - like into a full idea... it's just the words in order.
according to the above it might be something like

Most precious distinguished contemplation

dharma names are not usually translated into phrases (ie with "of" "the" etc and with one word becoming an attribute of the next and so on), IME. So it would be, with this translation, Jewel Famous Profound Contemplation.
