Knew a handsome Italian Roscoe and have always loved the name, he pre-dates the Dukes of Hazard which is the inevitable comparison it seems!

I really love the name, not sure of it's origins.

Also what about Blaize for a boy? Know it has 'old' origins I think? Am drawn but sounds a bit like a favourite pony I fear.

Prefer Roscoe to Blaize. Not sure why, but the latter feels a bit
contrived, as if you're trying too hard to come up with a cool name.

Roscoe Tanner was a rather dishy tennis player iirc.
I was never allowed to watch the Dukes so didn't know there
was a roscoe in it.

Blaize is a Mills and Boon hero.

In my head, Roscoe is always followed by "P. Coltrane" however, I am old grin, younger people might not have that association.

For me it's Emperor - god I'm ancient.

It's the name of my parents neighbours dog.

Rosco P Coltrane

for those of you who remember Dukes of Hazard...

Said that in my OP, when that memory fades it's a great name I think! I knew one who was like an Italian Johnny Dep when young.

whenever i was a child i wondered what if my name had changed into something more productive like roscoe...

fab song, not so fab name imho.

mwff Wed 30-Sep-09 12:04:40

really, fab song

Cortina Wed 30-Sep-09 12:17:30

Great song, now I like the name even more!

I love this! my dad's family are scottish and we have a Roscoe in the extended family. He's so cute. It so does suit a 3 year old boy grin

I think Jago or Hugo would be a good sibling name.

Blaize is nice for an American girl.

Roscoe is rather cool. Wouls you mind if people shortened it to Ross, though ?

Blaize reminds me of a hero(/heroine ?) in a Jackie Collins novel ....

Roscoe is lovely. I looked it up and it appears to be of Old Norse and Germanic origin.
Blaize I don't like. Sounds like a name for a dog or a horse.

How about Blaise with an S? Less equine.

Cortina Wed 30-Sep-09 15:23:17

I think Blaise (?) is actually a posh, old school, English name from memory but thinking more about it sounds quite the opposite possilby?

baconsandwich Wed 30-Sep-09 15:26:14

Love Roscoe. Went to school with a girl called Blaize so it has female connotations for me.

vanloadtovenice Wed 30-Sep-09 20:04:54

Blaise - the really nasty boy in Pretty in Pink!!! He was HORRID! That would put me off a bit, fabulous film though!

I know a Roscoe, think it's sweet - they don't shorten it, I guess it's a more unusual Milo/Hugo 'o' name.

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Wed 30-Sep-09 20:08:37

Blaise - Yuk, too american homecomingesque

Roscoe - I like it in it's long form but will it be shortened to Ros and do you like that?

TheBolter Wed 30-Sep-09 20:14:34

Blaize sounds like a horses name!

Rosco sounds like a big cash and carry shop - like Cost Co. Or even Tesco!
