From the experts:
Rooney is one of many bouncy Irish surnames that could make an agreeable first, once tied to Mickey Rooney (who was actually born Joseph Yule) in his young and spunky Andy Hardy period.
Young "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" actress Rooney Mara (born Patricia Rooney) gives it class and glamour--as well as bringing it into the unisex category. Roone is a cool short form.
