Rosner History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The surname Rosner is an occupational surname; more specifically it is a metonymic surname. A metonymic name is a name derived from the principle object associated with a particular occupation. In this case, the name is derived from the Old German word hros, which means horse.
Early Origins of the Rosner family
The surname Rosner was first found in Silesia, where the name became noted for its many branches within the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied and enrolled by the princes of the region. In their later history the branches became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family. Chronicles first mention Henrich Rosener of Aussig in 1330 and Pawel Rosener of Liegnitz in 1399. After the 14th century the single "s" was often replaced with a double "s," thus we have A. Rossner of Borna in Saxony in 1498.

The Rosner Motto +
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Honori et virtuti
Motto Translation: With honour and virtue.
