Unusual boys name to go with surname ROCK

We currently like Cruz Romeo (pronounced the Italian way, with the accent on the last syllable instead of the first as you would pronounce it in English).

Our other son is called Jonas Andreas Roman and we call him Andreas.

Any other ideas or thoughts?

How about the Catalan: Roc ?
It has a certain snappiness to it: Roc Rock.


On a serious note...
Gianluigi (my favourite Italian name!)

I have to say, your surname, er, rocks!

Stickov (sorry couldn't resist!)

I know nothing about Dutch pronunciation though, is there a huge difference?

Maryz Sat 15-Jun-13 22:44:27

But that applies to pretty much any name confused

I bet your Andreas is Andy to half his friends when he is a teenager.

As your husband is Scottish ~ Edinburgh

It might be a bit much for some, but Rocco Rock would - um - rock!

Ivo Rock (Celtic/Slavic)
Ezra Rock (Hebrew)
Taliesin Rock (Welsh)
Luca Rock (Italian)
Struan Rock (Scottish)
Dax Rock (French)
Jago Rock (Cornish)

There's a bit of everything for you. smile

Rats! Somebody beat me to Blackpool!


There are some great (sensible) names on here though.

lrock Sat 15-Jun-13 23:05:42

Yes, son of though

Maryz Sat 15-Jun-13 23:08:58

In fact, if your sons' friends are anything like mine, by the time they are teenagers they will both be called Rocco or Rocky, so it probably doesn't matter how shortenable their names are grin.

How about:

Setanta Rock (Irish)

Love Christian Rock!

Also on an Irish theme:

Senan Rock

I think that's very cool.

Bed Rock?grin

Johnny Rock is the coolest name ever.

amazingmumof6 Sun 16-Jun-13 11:18:38

London bus

Ice Rock is way cooler! grin

soontobeslendergirl Sun 16-Jun-13 11:31:22

Mattea Lucas
Freddie Romeo

MoelFammau Sun 16-Jun-13 11:38:52

Matteo is my favourite Italian name.

I second Ezra and offer Ruan. Ruan Rock has a nice ring in my humble opinion.

LondonBus Sun 16-Jun-13 12:38:31

Ruan Rock sounds like a stone circle.

RhondaJean Sun 16-Jun-13 12:44:15

Has anyone suggested The yet?

< helpful>

I like Jacob rock?

Anjou Sun 16-Jun-13 12:52:05

Ruan is a nice name but with the surname Rock reminds me of the expression 'gone to rack & ruin'. Sorry. :/

fussychica Sun 16-Jun-13 16:07:25

Ayres grin although it's actually rather nice

sorry more seriously
Gunnar - sorry that's not helpful either (gonna rock)

amazingmumof6 Sun 16-Jun-13 16:33:02


grin @ THE ROCK!

(I almost said it, but was too chicken, I though Pom Bear was bad enough...blush I also really want to say Precious, but I wait till there's a thread with the surname Stone or Metalwink )
