(French, English) Dweller near a rock; one who came from Roche (rock), in Cornwall. The French surname Roch is of patronymic origin, as it belongs to that group of names based on the first name of a father. In this case, the name is based on the personal name Roch, thus the surname indicates that early bearers of this family name were “sons of Roch.” The name Roch was popularised by the saint who bore this name; Saint Roch was a fourteenth century Frenchman, born in Montpellier, who nursed the plague-stricken in Italy. Because of his association with that country, the name is also very common there, in the form Rocco. It was not until the early Middle Ages that surnames were first used to distinguish between numbers of people bearing the same personal name.
