Meaning & Origins

Latinized form of a Saxon name of uncertain form and derivation. It is perhaps from Germanic hrōd ‘fame’ + wynn ‘joy’. It first occurs in the Latin chronicles of Geoffrey of Monmouth (12th century) as the name of a daughter of the Saxon invader Hengist, and was taken up by Sir Walter Scott as the name of a Saxon woman, Lady Rowena of Hargottstanstede, who marries the eponymous hero of his novel Ivanhoe (1819).
1,792nd in the U.S.
English (of Norman origin): habitational name from any of various places in northern France called Rivières, from the plural form of Old French rivière ‘river’ (originally meaning ‘riverbank’, from Latin riparia). The absence of English forms without the final -s makes it unlikely that it is ever from the borrowed Middle English vocabulary word river, but the French and other Romance cognates do normally have this sense.
887th in the U.S.
