EN - Già in un documento del 1331 è presente il toponimo Podium. Rusco potrebbe essere riferito al canale così chiamato per la pianta che cresceva sulle sue sponde, il ruscus aculeatus, cioè il pungitopo. Potrebbe derivare anche dalla combinazione tra “poggio” (podium, rialzo o dosso) e la voce lombarda ruspi (ruvido), in relazione alla conformazione del luogo.
