From the historical and enchanting region of France emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Rosseaux family. Originally, the French people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in France is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The name Rosseaux is a nickname type of surname for a person with red hair or a ruddy complexion. Tracing the origin of the name further, we found the name Rosseaux was originally derived from the Old French word "rous," meaning "red."
