Reply to: Re: Feminine variants of Rocco by Rene
Thank you for sharing that. Given that the write-up for Rocco on this site calls it the "Italian form of a Germanic name," I was curious about how much further the "Germanic name" origin could be followed. Rochus didn't yield any additional information so I'm very happy that you could help fill in that informational gap for me. :-)

I see from your signature's link, www.aboutnames.ch, that Rocco is" from the Old High German name 'Roho' which was a short form of names like 'Rochbert' that are all but forgotten today." Do you know anything about Rochbert? That's a completely new name to me.

Bacon is as close as food gets to a narcotic, and, like marijuana, it's the sort of thing you really won't appreciate until you order special versions through the mail.
