Rocco has roots in German and Italian. It is derived from the word “hrok,” which can be translated to "rest." The name was borne by a fourteenth century saint, who is now considered the patron saint of the sick. In recent years, the name has become more popular in the United States, which is likely due to Madonna choosing the name for her son.
