Meaning & Origins

Originally a transferred use of the surname, but in independent use as a given name since the 18th century, when it was bestowed in honour of Admiral Lord Rodney (1719–92), who defeated the French navy in 1759–60. The surname probably derives ultimately from a place name, but the location and etymology of this are uncertain. Stoke Rodney in Somerset is named for the family: the manor was held by Richard de Rodene in the early 14th century. Rodden in Somerset was Reddene in Domesday Book; this may be the source of the surname.
284th in the U.S.
German: from the personal name Wenzel, a pet form (with the German diminutive suffix -el) of the Middle High German personal name Wenze, a borrowing from Slavic representing a short form of the Old Czech personal name Vęceslav (see Vacek; the borrowing took place before Czech lost its nasal vowels).
