User comments for Eglantine (Meaning / History Only)

This is French for "wild rose."

The name Eglantine derives from Latin *aculeatus* "thorny" via Old French *aiglant*.

Also, the Eglantine Rose had two symbolic meanings in the Victorian language of flowers: "a wound to heal" and/or "simplicity".
