I have 3 kids Annie, Bo & Rocco. I named my baby Rocco -simply because I couldn't find ANY boy names I liked! It was weird at first -such a big name for a little babe. It was funny to tell people because they either loved it or were really bad at faking they liked it. It took a whole 2 months for me to even get used to it...but now I LOVE it! & he has just become our Rocco! (Super cute when kids say it!)
