So I have 6 days to go before my son is born and we still can't decide on a name.
We both like


I would just like other peoples opinions as we both like both names, middle name will be Christopher

Our DS who is 4 is called Jackson

Thanks 😊

Much prefer Rocco. Cooper makes me think of Whooping Cough. I suppose it matches Jackson though (both surnames).

I don’t think I’d want to be called Coop.

Rocco is a lovely name.

I'm sorry OP but Rocco is a dog's name where I live! There's one at doggy day care and a couple from the park/dog walking areas. And they're all quite 'butch' types of dogs, like Staffies (adorable!) or mastiff crosses.

What if your DS grows into a sensitive type, who likes art and poetry, or becomes an accountant - would Rocco suit him?! I agree that Cooper and Jackson sound like they kind of go together as they're surnames used as first names, as per the US.

Cooper. Congratulations OP, all the best with your baby boys birth!

I love the name Cooper. It's a common surname in Scotland!

Rocco is much nicer, Cooper is a bit downmarket.

I slightly prefer Rocco, Rocco Christopher is a great combo

I met a little Cooper recently. Is it getting more popular?

ozzyfroggy Thu 25-Nov-21 19:36:40

Cooper! I have a soft spot for Spencer though...

Nellesbelles Thu 25-Nov-21 19:49:04

I like both but I'm not sure Cooper Christopher goes

Round here if you shouted Cooper in the park you'd get half a dozen dogs running up to you.

I like cooper and Jackson

MrsFin Fri 26-Nov-21 09:00:06

Cooper is a similar name to Jackson, but I prefer Rocco

Buddhabowl Fri 26-Nov-21 11:08:08

I like Rocco. Rocky is a cute NN too

Rocco Christopher flows better than Cooper Christopher
