A red rose (flower)

Etymology 1Edit

From Old English rōse, from Latin rosa, from Oscan, from Ancient Greek ῥόδον (rhódon) (Aeolic ϝρόδον (wródon)), from Old Persian *wṛda- (flower) (compare Avestan 𐬬𐬀𐬭𐬆𐬜𐬀 (varǝδa-), Sogdian ward, Parthian wâr, late Middle Persian gwl (gul), Persian گل (gul), and Middle Iranian borrowings including Old Armenian վարդ (vard), Aramaic וַרְדָּא (wardā) / ܘܪܕܐ (wardā), Arabic وَرْدَة (warda(t)), 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).
