Etymology 1

From Middle English rose, roose, from Old English rōse, from Latin rosa, of uncertain origin but possibly via Oscan from Ancient Greek ῥόδον (rhódon, rose) (Aeolic ϝρόδον (wródon)), from Old Persian *wṛda- (flower) (compare Avestan 𐬬𐬀𐬭𐬆𐬜𐬀(varᵊδa-), Sogdian ward, Parthian wâr, late Middle Persian [Term?] (gwl /gul/), Persian گل(gul, rose, flower), and Middle Iranian borrowings including Old Armenian վարդ (vard, rose), Aramaic וַרְדָּא(wardā) / ܘܪܕܐ(wardā), Arabic وَرْدَة(warda), Hebrew וֶרֶד(wéreḏ)), from Proto-Indo-European *wr̥dʰos (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).
