I don't have have a German baby name book, but the part of name that for me that signals what name may mean is the rosine -Rose, Rosina, Rosalie & the closest to my Ger/Eng dictionary to Euph is Europe, so wonder is European Rose ;  )    Hopefully someone else may have a better knowledge on this first name,

To SGGEE list members,

I'm interested in the given name Euphrosine.  I was told many years ago that it is the German equivalent of Frances, but my research does not show any reference to Frances at all.  It might have been a "called name" used by this family instead.  Has anyone else run into Frances as an equivalent for Euphrosine?  In this case, even your silence will be helpful.  Thanks.
