Name Meaning

English: nickname from Middle English russet ‘reddish brown’, (from Old French rosset, diminutive of rous ‘red’, from Latin russus ‘red’). This may have been a nickname denoting hair coloring or complexion, but in Middle English russet denoted in particular a kind of coarse woolen cloth of a reddish brown or subdued color, typically worn by country people and the poor.
