Origins Available: English, German


The surname Rode is of several possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from "Rodd," the name of a village in Herefordshire; in this case, the original bearer of the name would have been someone who hailed from this region. Alternatively, the name may be derived from the Old English "roda," meaning "clearing in a forest"; in this instance, it is likely that the progenitor of the name lived in such an area. Finally, the name may be derived from the Anglo-Saxon personal name "Rod," which is itself derived from the German "Hrod," meaning "fame."

Rode Early Origins



The surname Rode was first found in Herefordshire, where the family held a family seat from early times. The name first appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.
