Rossi Family HistoryThis famous surname is Roman (latin) origins. It derives from the word 'rous' meaning red, and describes somebody with red hair or a red complexion. As Italian people are dark haired and dark skinned, this suggests that not only was the name a nickname, it was probably ethnic as well. The Anglo-Saxons for instance, were a Germanic race of red hair, and it maybe that numbers of them found their way into Italy in the 6th century, possibly as members of the invading Gallic armies who conquered the Roman Empire in the years after 410 a.d.
