My middle name is Ross and I am female.
There are four generations of women in my family that have Ross as their middle name and we are very proud of it! And we are of Irish/Scottish decent as well as German.

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.

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. ;)

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.
