Name Origin

Gross is a surname of German, Prussian, and Yiddish origin. The word means "big", "tall" or "great", and was likely adopted in Europe over the 15th to 19th centuries during the times of the House of Habsburg when monarchs of the royal families (Emperor or Empress) were called "the Great" (der Groß). Descendants of this House may have adopted the name Gross from their ancestors. In Germany, the name is usually spelled Groß, which is the correct spelling under German orthographic rules. German-speaking Christian hymns use references to Jesus as "Mein Herr ist Groß" (My Lord is Great) or "So Groß ist der Herr" (So Great is the Lord). In Switzerland, the name is spelled Gross. Some Germans and Austrians also use the spelling with "ss" instead of "ß".
