Origin:German
Meaning:Red-haired
Ro is a German gender-neutral name whose endearing simplicity hides within it a rich complexity. Related to the Ancient mythical figure Rowena—pagan daughter of the legendary Saxon leader Hengist—Ro boasts a wealth of meanings that only adds to its appeal. With no roots in Old English sources, Rowena's etymology is mysterious, though her reputation as an unrivaled beauty has sparked a wealth of possibilities. Some suggest Rowena comes from a curious blending of the Old Germanic element hrod, "bright-fame," and the Olde English wynn, "joy" or "pleasure," perhaps in honor of her famous good looks. The name may also stem from the Welsh Celtic Rhonwen, which means "fair-haired." In any case, Ro stands out for its pared-back style, giving way for baby to forge a lasting impression of their own making.
