Last name origins & meanings:
- Catalan and Southern French (Rodés): habitational
name from any of several places named Rodés, mainly those in El
Pallars and El Conflent districts, in northern Catalonia. This has the
same origin as Occitan Rodés (Rodez in French), in Avairon
department (southern France), which is first recorded in the 6th
century in the Latin form Rutensis, apparently from the name of
the Gaulish tribal name Ruteni.

plural of roda ‘wheel’.
