Name Meaning

English: from Middle English rishe, rush(e), rosh(e) ‘rush’ (Old English risc), either a topographic name for someone who lived in a rushy place, or a nickname probably denoting someone who wove mats, baskets, and other articles out of rushes.

English: nickname from Middle English rush ‘beehive’ (probably referring to skeps woven from rushes), perhaps denoting a bee-keeper.

Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Ruis ‘descendant of Ros’, a personal name perhaps derived from ros ‘wood’. In Connacht it has also been used as a translation of Ó Luachra due to confusion with the Irish word luachair ‘rushes’ (see Loughrey ).
