I like how it's a little edgy, but I can't imagine it on a real person.

I seem to remember a children's cartoon called "Roscoe's Modern Life," but what made me think of the name was the title character's son in the short story "the Curious Case of Benjamin Button." Roscoe eventually ends up taking care of his father when he becomes a child.

No MoonAgeDayDreamer. You're thinking of Rocko's Modern Life. It was an excellent show.

Marvel comic book character Captain America is named Roscoe Simons. I adore this name and the nickname Ross. To me, it's a super hero or pulp fiction cowboy name!

The name Roscoe is used twice throughout the film 'Django Unchained'. It is both the name of Dicky Speck's horse, and the name of Calvin Candie's slave bartender.

This is a great name. It's a classic - and to me classic names have more substance. It sounds very masculine. I can see it on a child and grown man - and can see it in any profession from an athlete, to a politician to a tradesman. I don't see the argument as it acting as a 'pet only' name since names like Max and Felix are super popular now and, frankly, my dog's name is Jack. Roscoe sounds strong, familiar, classic and cool.
