Rosario Family History
Rosario Name Meaning
Spanish and Portuguese: short form of a surname such as Spanish Del Rosario or from a short form of the Marian name María del Rosario given in particular to a girl who was born on the festival of Our Lady of the Rosary celebrated on the first Sunday in October. The word rosario ‘rosary’ derives from Late Latin rosarium ‘rose garden’ and was transferred to a set of devotions dedicated to the Virgin Mary as the result of the medieval symbolism which constantly compared her to a rose. Compare Rozario . Italian: from the male personal name Rosario of the same origin as 1 (above) or a habitational name from a minor place so named.
