Rosy-cheeked and cheery, Rosie (also spelled Rosy) has been standing on her own for many decades, back to the days of songs like Sweet Rosie O'Grady. She's one of the perky nickname names that are filling the popularity lists of other English-speaking countries: she's Number 47 in England and Wales and 57 in Scotland. In the US, she's freshly back on the Top 1000 after a 30 year hiatus -- after rising 235 spots and becoming one of the fastest-rising names of the year.
A hobbit character in Lord of the Rings, Rosie's current representatives include Rosie (born Roseanne) O'Donnell, Rosie Perez (born Rosa) and British-born pregnancy guru Rosie Pope.
