Etymology

The surname Ross has several possible derivations. The first is as a habitational name taken from Rots, a town in Normandy, France, which was likely named based on the Germanic element rod, meaning "clearing." The second is as a habitational name based on places called Ross or Roose, from the Welsh rhós, "upland" or "moors." The third is from the Germanic personal name Rozzo, a pet form of names beginning with the element hrod, "renown." The fourth is as an occupational name for a person who bred or cared for horses, from Middle High German ros, "horse."[1]

Behind the scenes

  • In J. K. Rowling's novels The Cuckoo's Calling and The Silkworm, Charlotte Campbell, the former fiancee of series protagonist Cormoran Strike, later becomes romantically involved and eventually engaged to Jago Ross, the heir to a noble Scottish family.
