Rocco

Origin: Germanic

Meaning: an Italian masculine name derived from Germanic element hrok meaning "rest" though I've also seen it as possibly meaning "rook" or "crow" from Germanic hruoh or possibly related to hraben meaning "raven"; it could also mean "to roar, shout".

It could also be a variant spelling of Rocca meaning "fortress, stronghold".
