Rocco is an Italian male name which comes from an Ancient Germanic element of uncertain meaning though I’ve seen several possible meanings for it: Proto-Germanic *hrōkaz (rook, crow), hrok (rest), rohon (to roar, shout). It’s also possible that Rocco is a variant form of Rocca, a locational name for someone who came from a place called Rocca, meaning “fortress, stronghold; rock”. Rocco is also a surname.
