Roseberry Topping

The Matterhorn of Cleveland. It is commonly thought that the name, Roseberry Topping derives from the Old Norse god, ‘Óthinn’ or ‘Odin’, and berg meaning a hill but Walter White wrote, in his 1858 book, A Month in Yorkshire, that the name comes from ‘ross’, a heath or moor, and ‘burg’ a fortress. Does anyone really know? He also says that the Topping element comes from ‘Toppen’ the Danish word for apex.
