The name Rocky is a boy's name of Italian origin meaning "rest". Rocky is ranked #955 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like American Names for Boys and discussed in our forums with posts like "A brother or sister for little Jack or Olivia".
From the experts:
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.
