My name is Rocco Benedetto R_____. I love my name and I am thankful for it and proud of it.

My husband's middle name is Rocco, named after a beloved uncle. Sicilian on his mother's side, but he loves Germanic culture which is interesting as that is the origin of the name. To me Rocco is a name that insinuates handsome, sensitive, honest, hard-working and loyal, NOT a Mafia criminal!

My name is Rocco and you can tell I’m Italian from my long last name that ends in ‘i‘. I think that it’s a cool unique name and I’m proud of it... kinda.

Sounds uber macho, like the name of a jock.

I was named after my grandfather Rocco (he was a gentle soul). Since I'm a girl my name Rocca. I am called Tina, which derives from calling a little one Rocchettina (pronounced: Rockettina)
I never liked my name but use it as a labeling name "LaRocca".

Given that there are like five people here that seem to hate the name, it sort of makes me want to use this name on a character for which it wouldn't stereotypically match.

You know, like a legit, sciency type. Maybe, a bit squirrely. Maybe a mama's boy.

My name is Rocco, lol. You hate the name at the start when you hear it often but when you have heard it a lot you start loving it. I don’t know why it’s like that, but I guess that’s not everyone.

To me the name Rocco makes me think of a criminal or makes me think of something that is associated with rocks.

My Grandmother's maiden name was Rocco. When I asked her if we were part Italian she informed me that we were of German descent.

Once you get past the Rocko's Modern Life association, this is a pretty handsome name. I picture a boy or young man of Italian descent, with dark hair and lightly tanned skin.

I feel bad saying this, but the name Rocco sounds really unintelligent.

I'm beginning to like this name. I think it's strong, but has a childlike innocence. Cute on a boy, handsome on a man. I also like the simplicity mixed with rarity.

Italian pronunciation:


Roll your "R." "O" is as usual, "Oh." Both "CC"s are hard-- and both must be distinctly pronounced. That task is most easily accomplished by placing extra emphasis on the letter before ("O") and slowly strolling through. Finish off with "Oh." [noted -ed]

I absolutely ADORE the name Rocco. Especially Rocco Antonio or Rocco Octavian. It reminds me of a sweet and intelligent boy.

Rocco is also used in South Africa, but at the moment it's not popular. Most Roccos are middle-aged at best.

Rocco DiSpirito is an American celebrity chef.

Somehow this name makes me think of a really muscular, tanned macho guy from Southern Europe or South America who is dumber than a box of rocks and is the lifeguard and lover of some rich middle-aged woman who finds him an idiot but loves his sex appeal. It's such a tacky name, and it sounds more like the name for either a criminal or a dumb but (in some women's opinion) sexy mach tool.

This is also the name of a Norwegian porn star.

I love the name. I'm not sure what I love about it. The sound. It sounds strong and manly. And the spelling with the two "c"s looks cute. And that is why I don't like the variant Rocko. It seems so "unnatural"? The "ck" doesn't fit here, I think.

Other possible variant: Rocko.

Rocco is a great, spirited name! Rocky would be a cute nickname for Rocco.

This is an ugly name.

I thought it would be associated with rocks.

My friend has a darling little brother named Rocco Rizzo. Rizzo is their mother's maiden name, and I think it has such an adorable ring.
