Rossi is an Italian surname, said to be the most common surname in Italy. Due to Italian emigration, it is also very common in other countries, including the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. Rossi is the plural of "Rosso" (meaning red in Italian). It is also a Finnish surname, not connected with the Italian one.

The name Rossi has been used frequently by various historical sources as The Rossi or Varangian Rossi in reference to an originally Scandinavian tribe that purportedly gave rise to the people known as the Rus' (people).
