This name derives from the Ancient Germanic name “Roslindis” composed of two elements: 1) "(h)ros" (horse) plus "linþia" (weak, soft, tender, mild), but interpreted as "docile horse, trained horse, meek horse”. 2) "*hrōþiz" (praise, fame, glory, renown, honour) plus "linþia" (weak, soft, tender, mild). During the middle Ages it was associated with and influenced by a name with separate origins in the Latin / Spanish “rosa linda”, “Linda” meaning (Beautiful) and “Rosa” meaning (rose). From this root the name can only mean “Beautiful Rose”.
