Definitions and meaning of rose
From Middle Englishrose, roose, from Old Englishrōse, from Latinrosa, of uncertain origin but possibly via Oscan from Ancient Greekῥόδον(rhódon, “rose”) (Aeolic ϝρόδον(wródon)), from Old Persian*wṛda-(“flower”) (compare Avestan𐬬𐬀𐬭𐬆𐬜𐬀 (varᵊδa-), Sogdianward, Parthianwâr, late Middle Persian [Term?] (gwl/gul/), Persianگل (gul, “rose, flower”), and Middle Iranian borrowings including Old Armenianվարդ(vard, “rose”), Aramaicוַרְדָּא (wardā) / ܘܪܕܐ (wardā), Arabicوَرْدَة (warda), Hebrewוֶרֶד (wéreḏ)), from Proto-Indo-European*wr̥dʰos(“sweetbriar”) (compare Old Englishword(“thornbush”), Latinrubus(“bramble”), Albanianhurdhe(“ivy”)). Possibly ultimately a derivation from a verb for "to grow" only attested in Indo-Iranian (*Hwardh-, compare Sanskrit vardh-, with relatives in Avestan).
