From вода́ (vodá) +‎ -о- (-o-) +‎ -росл (-rosl) +‎ (), based on a difficult-to-explain combining form of расти́ (rastí, to grow) (compare feminine singular past росла́ (roslá)). A parallel construction occurs in ле́торосль (létoroslʹ, sprout), also found as ле́торость (létorostʹ), with cognates Old Church Slavonic лѣторасль (lětoraslĭ), Czech letorost, Polish latorośl.
