    Name Meaning

    English and Irish: of Norman origin, from a diminutive of Old French roche, rocque ‘rock’, a topographic name denoting someone who lived by or near a small rock or a habitational name from a place called with this word, such as La Roquette in Eure. In Ireland Rockett was apparently substituted for Rockell, which carries the same original sense ‘little rock’ (see Rochelle ).

    English: perhaps a nickname from Middle English rocket ‘overgarment, coat’, used for someone who made or sold such vestments.
