Bross Family History

Meaning of surname: Bross

Bross (/brɑːs/) is a patronymic surname of German origin.[1][2] The Latin name Ambrosius (of which "Bross" is a reduced form) was popular in early Christian Germany primarily because of the fame of Saint Ambrose of Milan (Aurelius Ambrosius) whose name comes from the Greek Αμβροσιος (Ambrosios) which means “immortal” or “divine.”[3][4] The portion of the etymology of Aμβρόσιος from which Bross comes is βροτός (Brotos) which means "mortal."[5][6]
