Rosamund Clifford, the royal mistress, did not fit the "pure rose" definition, so by tinkering with the Latin, an alternative was found: Rosa mundi, the rose of the world - worldly, and also promiscuous: belonging to the whole world (of men).

Any modern Rosamund could equally well translate it differently again: the rose - the best and most beautiful thing - of the whole world (of precious objects).
