Roode History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The surname Roode 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."
