: IF anyone could help me could you tellme what the meaning or origin of the surname Ross is. Thank you
There are a couple of possibilites. One origin of Ross is Scottish. It was a place name that descibed someone whose home was located on a promontory or peninsula. Alternately, "Rosen" type names of German Jews, such as "Rosenberg", were sometimes shortened in America to "Ross".
Hope this helps!
