Rossi (surname)

Rossi is an Italian surname, said to be the most common surname in Italy. Due to Italian emigration, it is also very common in other countries such as the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and France. Rossi is the plural of Rosso (meaning red, in Italian), although it is argued the surname derives from another source.

It is also a Finnish surname, not connected with the Italian one.

The name Rossi has been used frequently by various historical sources as The Rossi or Varangian Rossi in reference to an originally Scandinavian tribe that purportedly gave rise to the people known as the Rus' (people).

    Nothing is so threatening to conventional values as a man who does not want to work or does not want to work at a challenging job, and most people are disturbed if a man in a well- paying job indicates ambivalence or dislike toward it.
    —Alice S. Rossi (b. 1922)
