Those seeking a gender-neutral name with fascinating origins will adore Rosslyn. This beautiful respelling combines the Latin name Rose and the Scottish name Ross with an adorable sprinkle of German Roselyn. Together, they carry the meanings "rose," "cape," "the waterfall over the edge," and "gentle horse." For hundreds of years, Rosslyn and its other forms have gone in and out of fashion. While Rosalind became a classic thanks to Shakespeare's As You Like It, Ross will forever be our loyal neighbor in the TV show Friends.
