Ross

Ross comes from a Scottish and English surname via a place name meaning “promontory, headland” from Scottish Gaelic ros which ultimately comes from a PIE root word. Although traditionally a male name, I can see Ross as being used as a unisex name, perhaps because of its similarity to Roz.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
