rufino

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > italic > latin
ORIGIN:
latin 
NAME ROOT:
RūFUS
MEANING:
This name derives from the Latin cognomen “rūfus”, literally meaning "red, somber, red-haired". 1) Rufina and Secunda († 257) were Roman virgin-martyrs and Christian saints. Their feast day is celebrated on July 10. 2) San Rufillo Forlimpopoli, or Ruffillo (IV century - V century), was the first bishop of Forlimpopoli and is revered as a saint by the Catholic Church. 3) William II, the third son of William I of England, was King of England from 1087 until 1100, with powers over Normandy, and influence in Scotland. He was less successful in extending control into Wales. William is commonly known as William Rufus, perhaps because of his red-faced appearance. The feast day is traditionally celebrated on July 18 and July 29.
