Noble surnames, such as Rosales, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Rosales, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Rosales family originally lived in a place where wild roses grew. The surname is derived from the Latin word rosa, which means rose. The family name Rosales is also derived from the given name Rose.
