Name Meaning

This has the same origin as Occitan Rodés (Rodez in French), in Avairon department (southern France), which is first recorded in the 6th century in the Latin form Rutensis, apparently from the name of the Gaulish tribal name Ruteni.2 Catalan: variant of Roda , from Catalan rodes, the plural of roda ‘wheel’.3 English: variant of Rhodes .
