    What in the world were they thinking? I never thought they would use such a stupid name when their first child has a beautiful name like Charlotte. Charlotte and Rocky?? Really?? Who the heck gives a child a name like name Rocky? Paging Dr. Rocky Prinze? Yeah, I don’t think so!

    @Sarah: What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
    By any other name would smell as sweet.

  • Emma

    Sorry but its just ugly.

  • ….

    Oh come on, they’re young and have been together for a really long time. Especially in today’s world, and not to mention Hollywood, that’s very rare.

    Why not comment on their long-lasting, real love instead of complaining about what they choose to name their child.

  • WTF

    Rocky??? are you kidding me ¬¬

    Charlotte Grace is a beautiful name, but Rocky…..WTF!!!

  • kjbk

    I think its cool! :)

  • amanda

    I hope they call him james….is he gonna have a friend in school named Bulwinkle?

  • James

    I bet people will just call him RJ.

  • laura

    Who cares about their love, we’re not love-judges.. This post is about the name, so we talk about the name.
    They must have been drunk when they chose it, it’s unbelievably dumb, I would never have expected it from her….

  • Liz

    Its because Freddie works in boxing events now I believe. It’s his passion. But I think they will call him RJ.

  • Beta

    i actually like the name,its something different

  • kelly

    Don’t even look like his father.

  • Lauren

    For all the name’s haters, but Freddie and Sarah doesn’t want their opinion on the name. :) I love the name and Rocky means strong, stony. I think they chose it because their son will be a champion! I’m glad they chose it and so happy for them. Leave them the hell alone, Jez. they wanted a name that is rarely exist here, so yeah you should understand them and I respect their opinion. xxxxxxxxxxx

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    I guess they’re big fans of boxing films. Or cartoon squirrels.

  • alexy

    that’s terrible

  • joley

    it’s not as bad as some of these weird names celebs give their kids. my great grandfather’s name was rocco and most called him rocky.

  • salleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    It’s going to sound really stupid when he becomes a man. I don’t
    understand why these celebrities saddle their kids with such ridiculous
    names…Apple, Coco, etc. Poor kids have to live with these names for
    the rest of their lives.

  • Jamie

    Who cares? It’s not YOUR kid, you can name your child whatever you want. But, this is what they chose for theirs. Who are YOU to judge?

  • Janet

    We used to have a cat named Rocky, back in the day. Seems more appropriate for a pet than a person but all those celebs are nutcases so whatever……

  • C

    I love it! I thought so fun, different and cool! rock is strong and a fighter \ o / he has wonderful parents

  • Amber

    It’s no one’s business what Sarah and Freddie name their son. It’s THEIR child not OURS. Who are we to judge? Are you responsible for the child? Are you taking care of the child? WHO CARES what other people think about his name? The child is HEALTHY and that is all that matters. Who are WE to judge?

  • fitz

    I know they have every right to name their kid whatever they want…but, I can also have an opinion about that name and I’ve gotta say that it’s one of the dumbest names I’ve heard in a while. When Charlotte was born, I was like, ‘Great, they’re naming her something normal’. Whatever possessed them to name their boy Rocky – well, that’s just sad (and a little funny , not in a good way).

  • KTP

    All the Rocky’s I knew that was a nick name Robert was their real name. Robert would of been nice but each to their own. I wish them the best! :-)

  • minx28

    WTF ??? What kind of CRACK has she been smoking ?? Always thought she was sooo NORMAL !!!

  • lynn

    Rocky what a horrible name, I like James. Really disapointed in Sarah and Fredding after giving their daughter a beautiful name I really thought they would do the same for their son,

  • lynn

    Amber,,take a chill pill and calm down, the article offers people to give their opinion which they have, every one wishes them well and are fans or they would not be on this website.. Just chill girl..

  • melissa

  • melissa

    i think thats nice i hard some crazy one so at least is not to bad
    exp. compa is one of them

  • Stephanie

    @Sarah: Personally, I really dislike the name.It sounds like a name that you give a dog, not a baby boy.Also, it reminds me way too much of the “Rocky” movies.I guess everyone has different tastes.

  • Ben Malquist

    Freddie’s dad isn’t Sr. He’s someone Kathy picked up at a club while Freddie was out partying. They don’t get along now and the whole family is very dysfunctional. Sarah is the glue that keeps Freddie happy. She and the kids are all he’s got.
