    I definitely think it's a cross-cultural name. Sure, it's used in Spanish-speaking cultures, but also Italy and other European countries. Plus it peaked in popularity in the U.S. in the 1880s, so I think of it as a vintage name. For the record, I LOVE Rosa but can't convince my husband to use it for our little girl.

    I live in a heavily Hispanic area, so I hear it often, but I do think it can be used cross culturally. I think it's a great choice.

    I hear it a lot, on Hispanic women and white women. I definitely think it is prettier and more exotic than just Rose. Have you considered Rosario?

    Personally, I don't think you have to be Hispanic to be Rosa. That may be a common association for some people, but I think it's even prettier than Rose. I know it's way too much like Mona Lisa, but Rosa Lisa sounds gorgeous to me.

    I have known Rosas that were very white. I have Rosa on my list and my daughter will either have red or light brown hair and very fair skin so I don't think it is that Hispanic. If you are unsure what about Rosalie NN Rosa?
