    Name Meaning

    English, Scottish, French, Walloon, Danish, and German: from the name of the flower, Middle English, Old French, Middle High German rose (from Latin rosa), in various applications. In part, it is a topographic name for someone who lived at a place where wild roses grew, or a topographic or habitational name referring to a house bearing the sign of the rose. It is also found, especially in Europe, as a nickname for a man with a ‘rosy’ complexion (compare 4 below). In North America, the English form of the surname has absorbed cognates and similar-sounding names from other languages, e.g. Hungarian Rózsa (see Rozsa ), Slovak Róža and Czech Roza . Compare 6 below and French Larose 2.
