Etymology of the
Meaning of the baby name ROSELI.
Another form of Rosel
(q.v.). Yonge thinks it originated
as a term of
endearment. It may be a diminutive form of Rose
(q.v.), "little rose," or from the French nickname rousel,
meaning "little red one." See Russell.
(History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
... The bowl she gave to Leneli,
and little Roseli, crowing with delight, seized the spoon and
stuck it first into an eye, and then into her tiny pink button of a
nose, in a frantic effort to find her mouth. It was astonishing to
Baby Roseli how that rosebud mouth of hers managed to hide
itself, even though she was careful to keep it wide open while she
searched for it. (The Swiss Twins, Perkins, 1922)
