Female, Nature, Proto-Indo-European, Virtues/Attributes


Arrosa is a Basque female name, the Basque form of Rose, the name of a flower which derives from Latin rosa meaning “rose” via Greek rhodon (rose) which may ultimately be derived from Persian *wrda- (rose), though it may also derive from Proto-Indo-European *wṛdho- meaning “sweetbriar”. Arrosa also means “pink” in Basque.

Rose was also originally the Norman form of Germanic names beginning with hrod meaning “fame”, originally spelled Rohese or Roese. Rose is also a short form of names like Rosamund, Rosaline or Rosalind, in which case the first part of the name comes from Germanic hros meaning “horse”.

Arrosa is also a French word, the third-person singular form of arroser meaning “to water, to sprinkle”.

Origin: Old Persian, Proto-Indo-European
