Meaning of the baby name ROSA.

  

ROSA (Роса).  Slavic name, derived from the vocabulary word rosa, meaning "dew." (Journal of the Gypsy Lore Society, v.2, 1891).  Usage: Bulgaria, Croatia, Russia, Serbia, the Romani, Ukraine.

ROSA.  Medieval Latin name meaning "rose."  Usage:  America, England, France, Italy, Portugal and Spain. 

... St. Dominic arranged a series of devotions, consisting of the meditations, while rehearsing the recurring aves and paters marked by the larger and smaller nuts, or berries, on a string.  These, which we call beads from beden (to pray), formed the rosarium, or rose garden, meaning originally the delights of devotion.   This rosarium has a day to itself in the Roman calendar, and possibly may have named the Transatlantic saint, Rosa di Lima, the whole of which appellation is borne by Peruvian señoras, and practically called Rosita.
     Rosa is found in all kinds of ornamental forms in different countries, and the contractions, or diminutives, of one become the names of another. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
