Roseland Name Meaning
English: Reaney identifies this as a habitational name from Roselands Farm in Ulcombe, Kent. However, he gives only one (late) citation, and the surname, if it exists at all in the United Kingdom, is now very rare. Americanized form of Norwegian Røys(e)land, a habitational name from about 30 farmsteads, many in Agder, named from Old Norse reysi ‘heap of stones’ + land ‘land’, ‘farmstead’.
