    I think it's a lot of name, plus it's unusual, so it's a one-two punch for a person to deal with. But, it has a lovely sound and a familiar nickname, and I can see why you like it. I knew a Cassie in...

    You're less emotionally prepared now you mean? I just want to say it's okay to change your mind about kids, and it's hard to say if it's the right choice for anyone except yourself. I wasn't ready...

    She wasn't asking for opinions on the name itself, lol.

    I don't think Rory and Rose are too similar. It is a lot of Rs, but they don't rhyme or sound cutesy. The only "full" name I can think to...

    I agree with the complicated and smoosh comments. If the family significance outweighs that criticism, then there you have it. It's not ugly though, even though I voted no.
