Gender: F Meaning of Rhoda: "rose" Origin of Rhoda: Greek

To those who remember, Rhoda is still stuck with the brassy Bronx 1970s sitcom Rhoda Morgenstern. But Rhoda has a much longer history--it is a name that can be found in the New Testament as a servant girl in the house of Mary, mother of John. Later, Rhoda appeared in the novel Vanity Fair and the Shaw play Man and Superman.

Rhoda started out on the popularity list at Number 161, but never reached that height again.
