One girl joined two (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

rosemary

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'joined two' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I cannot see how they can define each other.

'one girl' is the wordplay.
'one' becomes 'rose' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'girl' becomes 'Mary' (girl's name).
'rose'+'mary'='ROSEMARY'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for rosemary that I've seen before include "Herb - girl's name(s)" , "Fragrant evergreen shrub used in cooking" , "Name of girl or herb" , "such seasons" , "Evergreen flowering shrub - girl's name" .)
