"Rode" (Old English rod) means "(wood)land cleared for farming". There are several competing explanations of the meaning of "Odd": "Old"; "Odd" (Middle English odde) in the sense of "the third of three", i.e. to contrast this Rode with North Rode and Rode Heath; "Hood's" (Middle English hod), from the name of a 13th-century tenant of the manor; "Odda's", from an Old English forename.
