Sarah Michelle Gellar Names Son Rocky James

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have announced their son’s name.

Since welcoming their second child in September, the Buffy alum, 35, and the actor, 36, have remained mum on their baby’s birth date and his name. But now, the high-profile is ready to reveal the moniker they chose.

They have named their son Rocky James, SMG’s rep tells Us Weekly.

Wed for ten years, the pair are also parents to 3-year-old daughter Charlotte Grace.

Rocky is the name of two of the most famous boxers of all time — Marciano and the fictional Balboa. Additionally, it is a name of English origin, meaning “stony” or “craggy.” It is alo used as a nickname for the Italian “Rocco” (after the 14th-century saint).

James, meanwhile, is Freddie’s middle name.

Do you like the name Rocky James?

    I do not like the name. I LOVE the name Charlotte…but Rocky? Nope.

    • OMG Again

      I grew up across the street from a guy named Rocco (whose nickname was Rocky), so I think the name Rocky is great and brings back fond memories of my childhood.

  • Little Rocky – it’s fun. Rock James – sounds sexy. Rocky & Charlie Prinze – not a bad combination.

  • Lizzie

    This is almost word for word the article that US Weekly posted yesterday.

  • Sandra

    I love the name Charlotte for a little girl for sure! But Rocky, I don’t think so. But then again, what do they care if anyone likes the name anyways?

  • AvaElizabeth

    Rocky? really?
    I would call a dog Rocky.. but a kid? omg.

    Doesn’t fit Charlotte, too.

  • Serena

    I never would’ve guessed such a name with them.. I don’t hate it that much, but don’t love it either. I do like James, they should’ve picked that as his first name. But I like it better than Tenessee James.. On the other hand who are we haha it’s their baby 🙂
    Hope to see some pix soon, I love this fam!

  • Lizzie

    Rocky is not that bad.

  • Kasey1

    Eh..could be better, could be worse. I like James better, but then again, it’s not my baby. I only say James because (well first off I really do like it) it sounds classic, like Charlotte. Rocky doesn’t strike me as classic, nor trendy, really.But hey, if that’s what they like, then good for them! SN: They are an adorable family!

  • Yancy

    Perhaps they are breaking the chain of calling another male Freddie since the first two have really bad drug problems.

    It’s not that bad compared to Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Tennessee, Egypt, Bronx, Sparrow, Elula, Astala, Pilot, Maxwell, Maple, Apple, Poppy etc etc etc…..

    • May

      What’s wrong with Poppy? Scout and Tallulah are fairly common names. Elula has an actual history behind it, so it doesn’t fit your list. I really don’t like the name Rocky, but I’ve definitely heard worse.

        “Elula has an actual history behind it, so it doesn’t fit your list” – what does that even mean? They’re just listing names they don’t like.

        Elula is uglier than Poppy, Scout and Tallulah put together.

      It’s just as bad as all the other names you listed.

    the worst I’ve heard was peanut kai.

      Don’t forget about Miller Lyte.

      • Kasey1

        Don’t forget Audio Science, Pilot Inspektor, etc 😉

  • Annaleah

    I like it. Not too common like Charlotte, but still not weird either.

  • v-girl

    My dog is Rocky….sucks for a kid name.

  • Calla

    I’m kind of disappointed. Charlotte Grace is so classic and beautiful, I was hoping for something just a lovely for their baby boy. Rocky isn’t my style but I love James.

  • Denim

    Dont mind Rocky and hate James, way too boring and overused. At least its hidden in the middle.

  • Sarah Bercar

    I can’t believe it she name her son Rocky!!! Don’t like at all !

  • KiMMi

    Rocky sounds weird. I think it fits for pets not people! I expected something more traditional given the name of thei daughter. Likely “James” is from dad’s side. Just a few know that Freddie Prinze Junior is just an alias. His real name is Freddie James Prinze.

    • Annaleah

      Freddie Prinze Jr. is not an alias….it’s his name. His middle name is James, he doesn’t have to say his middle name every time he says his name….

    • Anonymous

      His real name is Freddie James Prinze, Jr. Most people don’t use their middle names.

    Nicknames used to be just that… But now people put them on the birth certificate instead of giving the poor kid a proper name they can go by if they ever want to.

  • coco

    Come on people, one Hollywood starlet can’t even drunk-name her baby and you all make a big deal out of it! Take it easy!

  • Yuk

    As a nickname it is OK but as a real first name that’s hideous!

  • Kiwi

    Sarah might be just “a starlet” but her kid’ll be called Rocky and will introduce himself as Rocky for the rest of his life!
    Freddie uses just Freddie Prinze jr for work but James is his real middle name!!

  • minx
