The Bull Moose Part 2

And the finale discussion thread! (For now... Teddy Roosevelt is worthy of many more episodes at some point, as is his daughter who we are equally enamored with. :-))

Can`t find the first episode about Roosevelt so responding here. The way Roosevelt explained his name is correct.  It is a Dutch word which is pronounced that way. currently we would write it as being the word. Rozenveld, meaning field of roses. So properly if you go back in his families history they will have worked in a field of roses or lived near/in one. That is the most common way the surnames in the Netherlands were constructed. Related to your job or place you lived when the surnames became mandatory.
