Primrose Meaning and Origin

The name Primrose is a girl’s name meaning “first rose” and is of English origin. Primrose is an flower name from the late 19th-century from Latin prima rosa. The name is more popular now thanks to Primrose Everdeen from The Hunger Games, but the pretty moniker has a fascinating history. It was first used in Scotland as a surname and spread through England in the 1900s. Historically, the name Primrose was often given to girls born in the spring, as this was the season when primroses would bloom. The primrose flower comes in lots of colors, including red, yellow, blue, blue-purple, white, and cream. The plant has been used for centuries to remedy rheumatic pain and as a salve to heal wounds. Famous people with the name Primrose include Primrose Arnander, a British author and journalist, and Primrose Lockett, a British actress.
