Gender: M Meaning of Rocky: "rest" Origin of Rocky: Diminutive of Rocco, Italian Rocky's Popularity in 2015: #927

How many decades will it take for Rocky to triumph over its association with Sylvester Stallone's battered but not beaten boxer? The moment may have come, now that Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have named their son Rocky. It helps, too, that Madonna's son Rocco helped make the name child-appropriate again. Rocky has been back in the US Top 1000 since 2013.
