Ringrose Name Meaning
English: of uncertain origin. It is first attested in Norwich in 1259 as Ringerose, and later forms show no significant variantion. Unless it had already been drastically altered by folk etymology at that early date, it is probably from Middle English ring ‘ring’ + rose ‘rose’, but if so the original meaning is far from clear.
