Rhode (or Rhodos) was a nymph, the daughter of Poseidon and Amphitrite (or Aphrodite), who is said to have given her name to the island of Rhodes. Her name may be linked, prettily enough, with rhodea, 'rosy', and rhodon, 'rose' has also been suggested as the origin of the name of the island. In fact both its name, and hers, are probably pre-Greek or even pre-Indo-European.
