[Middle English, from Old English, from Latin rosa.]
Word History: It is etymologically correct to drink a julep while watching the Run for the Roses. The English word rose comes from Latin and Old French. Latin rosa may be an Etruscan form of Greek Rhodia, "Rhodian, originating from Rhodes." The Attic Greek word for rose is rhodon, and in Sappho's Aeolic dialect of Greek it is wrodon. In Avestan, the language of the Persian prophet Zoroaster, "rose" is varəda and in Armenian vard, words both related to the Aeolic form. The Modern Persian word for "rose" is gul (which, believe it or not, is descended from a form quite similar to varəda through a series of regular sound changes); and gul-āb is "rose-water." Gulāb is also a drink made of water and honey or syrup. The name of this Persian treat was borrowed into Arabic as julāb and then, through Spanish and French, became julep in English, the ambrosia for sipping on Derby Day.
