The ancient and distinguished surname Rhose is derived from the Middle High German word "rose," meaning "a rose." The name may have been first borne by someone who lived near a rose garden, or by someone who lived in a house bearing the sign of the rose. Alternatively, the name may be of nickname origin, referring to someone with a "rosy" complexion. The surname is common in many European countries, including England, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, as well as Germany, and can be found under a large number of spelling variations.

Rhose Early Origins



The surname Rhose was first found in Silesia, where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation. The origins of the name make it likely that several branches of the family emerged independently during the Middle Ages; there are records dating from the 13th documenting the presence of the name Rhose in Schleswig-Holstein, Pomerania, Alsace, Swabia, and Bohemia, as well as Silesia.
