Origin of rose

  • French (vin) rosé pink (wine) from Old French from rose rose rose1

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • Middle English from Old English from Latin rosa

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Old English rōse, from Latin rosa, from Oscan, from Ancient Greek ῥόδον (rhódon) (Aeolic ϝρόδον (wródon)), from Old Persian *wá¹›da- (“flower") (compare Avestan 𐬬𐬀𐬭𐬆𐬜𐬀 (varǝδa-), Sogdian ward, Parthian wâr, late Middle Persian gwl (gul), Persian Ú¯Ù„ (gul), and Middle Iranian borrowings including Old Armenian Õ¾Õ¡Ö€Õ¤ (vard), Aramaic וַרְדָּא (wardā) / ܘܪܕܐ (wardā), Arabic وَرْدَة (warda(t)), Hebrew וֶרֶד (wéreḏ)), from Proto-Indo-European *wrÌ¥dÊ°os (“sweetbriar") (compare Old English word (“thornbush"), Latin rubus (“bramble"), Albanian hurdhe (“ivy")). Possibly ultimately a derivation from a verb for "to grow" only attested in Indo-Iranian (*Hwardh-, compare Sanskrit vardh-, with relatives in Avestan).

    From Wiktionary
