    Could Prose work as a name?

    Do you think that Prose could work as a girl's name? Or would it just too often be misheard as Rose?
    I think it's so elegant and pretty, but would love some opinions. Is it just. too. weird?

    If Poet goes, so does Prose! She probably would have to correct people her whole life, though.

    "Hi, I'm Prose"
    "Oh, Rose?"
    "No, with a P"

    Could be worth it though for a beautiful and unique name. Maybe you'd consider Primrose? Kind of the same P+Rose sound, but less likely to be misunderstood.

    Might also make a better middle name. That way you can avoid a lot of the correcting during first-name introductions.

    Although I do love Poet, I can't see Prose working in the first name spot. At least not yet. I do think that it would often get misheard for Rose and I like dctorjones' suggestion of Primrose.

    Prose sounds nice in context and looks nice on paper, but if I heard someone say "Hi, my name is Prose" I would probably assume they had a brother named "Cons". It has so much potential to be misheard. Nice in theory, though.
