Rocky Origin and Meaning

The name Rocky is both a boy's name and a girl's name of Italian origin meaning "rock or rest".
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.
