As I am also a Ross, I have always been told my mother, who named me, that Ross means horse. Not just an average horse but a work horse that is worth its keep.

I have been told it was also an ancient Scottish word for Russia. This could be linked to other popular meanings for the name such as 'headland' or 'northern peninsula'.

I have always liked the name Ross for a boy. Very strong handsome sounding name and one he can grow up with.

I love the name Ross. It's one syllable, strong, masculine, rare (compared to other male names today) and in the English language it looks good on paper.
-- Anonymous User  2/24/2015
I am named Ross, and I love my name. I also love all of the nicknames I get. It's funny because I've been called the same nicknames forever, yet when I meet someone new, they always think they are the first person to have ever called me that. Some examples are "Ross the Boss", "Rossy", "Rossypoo"... and I'd have to agree that "Ross the Boss" is the most accurate and correct way of describing myself. ;)
