Their family symbol is the rose.[2]


The name Rosales comes from a derivative of the Latin word "rosa" ("rose") and is the plural form of the Spanish word "rosal", both of which mean "rosebush".[3][4][5] Though Rosales is not exactly a composite word like other English Shadowhunter names, its translation (rosebush) is.[6]


  • According to Cassandra Clare, Spanish/Mexican families would have the pattern for the apellido materno (maternal surname) on the outside surface of their family rings, and the pattern for the apellido paterno (paternal surname) goes on the inside; as an example: Cristina's ring has roses upon the outside and a pattern of mountains on the inside.[5]
