So everyone has been posting their teacher's childrens' names, so I though I would share one.

My creative writing teacher has a little boy named Rocco. I think this is how you spell it (prn. ROCK-oh) My teacher is very Italian, and this seems like a very Italian name to me.

I'm not a huge fan of the name---to me, it sounds sort of like a nickname (like Rocky) but it does seem to fit my teacher's son, based on the stories he's told us about his crazy little boy :P

So what do you think of it?

Not a fan of it, sounds very celeb trendy.

It sounds like a bad nickname. I don't like it.

I disagree with this name sounding too celeb trendy. To me, Rocco sounds like a dog's name. Actually, I've heard the name on a couple of dogs before.

Sorry, Lilah. The reason that 'celeb trendy' came into mind was because of Rocco -Madonna's kid.

But I do agree that it sounds like a dog name.

I don't like it, and I agree with Zayda though. It does sound celeb trendy. But, I can see it on a dog, more than I can on a person. :unsure: It's too much of a nn. for a person.. IMO.

I don't like it. It seems too celebrity, and too nickname-ish.

    AND, I of course love thinking of baby names even though that is a VERY far in the future thing for me because I'm still young!

I'm really not a fan, but it's probably because my uncle Derrick's rottweiler is named Rocco, and so hearing it on a child wouldn't eem right to me.
