Rosʹalinde (3 syl.)

.

The anagram of “Rose Danil” or “Rose Daniel,” with whom Spenser was in love, but the young lady married John Florio, lexicographer. In the Shepherdsʹ Calendar Rose is called “Rosalinde,” and Spenser calls himself “Colin Clout.” Shakespeare introduces John Florio in Love’s Labour’s Lost, under the imperfect anagram Holofernes (ʹHnes Floreo).
