Rodney is in origin a toponym, Rodney Stoke, derived from an Anglo-Saxon name meaning "Hroda's island" (Hroda being a short form of an Anglo-Saxon name beginning with the element hrod- "fame").[citation needed] It became a surname in the 18th century, and a title of the Peerage of Great Britain in 1782, as Baron Rodney. Secondarily, it came to be used as a given name, originally in honour of George Brydges Rodney, 1st Baron Rodney.
