Romero is not derived from Rome. It is the Spanish word for the herb Rosemary = Lat. Rosmarinus officinalis see: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosmarinus_officinalis. There has been a famous musician, Mateo Romero, who was born in Liege, Belgium as Mathieu Rosmarin (ca. 1575 – 1647) who was taken to Spain at the age of 8 see (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mateo_Romero_(composer)).
According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosemary and Latin dictonaries the name Rosmarin derives from the Latin words "ros" ("dew" or "tear") and marin ("sea")
