Rhodes (surname)

Rhodes (surname)

Rhodes is a surname, with other spellings Rhoades, Rhoads, Roads and Roades. It is also linked to the variant spelling Rohde, and the origins are thought to come from a town or village in Germany, near the city of Lübeck. This was not an unusual social situation — surnames were adopted as a popular concept. When surnames were first becoming popular in a community many chose the same name — and of course, the majority were illiterate, hence the variations. This surname may refer to:
