ROTH Family History

Recorded as Roth, Rothe, Rother, Rothert, Roiter, Roter, Rotheman, Rothman, Rothmann, Rottmann, Roitman, Reitman, and others, this is a surname of English, German or Jewish origins of which it has at least four. The first and most likely is from the pre 7th century word "rot" meaning red, and hence probably an ethnic name for an Anglo-Saxon, people who were often red haired. The second is topographical and like the surname Rhodes or Rodes, is a development of the early word "rod" meaning a wood, and hence a dweller at such a place. Thirdly it can be from the German word "hrod" meaning renown, and often used as a prefix of other names, whilst fourthly it can be Jewish...
