Rochelle is a French and Old German name that originates from the French town of La Rochelle. La Rochelle lies on the Bay of Biscay on the French Atlantic coast. It was found in the 10th Century and it became an important harbor in the 12th Century. La Rochelle was France's largest harbor until the 15th Century. The French/Old German origin gives the meaning "little rock."

Rochelle is also a female variant of the Italian name Rocco. Rocco comes from the Christian Saint Rocco/Roch who lived in Italy during the 13th and 14th Century. He is the patron saint of the sick. Rocco stems from the German word hrok. This Italian/German origin gives the meaning "rest."
