Meaning:rose; tender; horse
A rose by any other name not only smells as sweet, but sounds as pretty. Rosalyn, a girl’s name of Spanish origins—and an elaboration of the name Rose—proves just that. Appropriately enough, Rosalyn means “rose,” after the beautiful and sweet-swelling flower. This is a particularly lovely name for baby, as roses are often associated with romantic love and are given to beloveds on special holidays. Rosalyn can also be a variant of Rosaline, meaning “tender” or “horse,” and has the adorable nicknames Ros or Roz.
