“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Shakespeare
In mythology the rose is associated with Aphrodite the Greek goddess of love who was often depicted adorned with roses around her head, feet and or neck.
In Ancient Rome, a wild rose would be placed on the door of a room where secret or confidential matters were being discussed. The phrase sub rosa, or “under the rose”, means to keep a secret and is derived from this ancient Roman practice.
