Rochelle is a word that is considered as a feminine one and it is used only by the French people or the people who can trace their origin in France. The meaning that you can figure out from the word is 'little rock'.

The word is also considered as a variant of Rocco that can trace its origin in the Italian language. The meaning that the word conveys is that of 'rest' and is derived from a Germanic element 'hork'. This name is also very famous one and one of the most famous bearers of the name was the fourteenth century saint who had the credit to nurse the victims of plague. But while doing so he himself caught the disease and considered as the patron saint of sick.
