    Edith Rosalie - thoughts?

    So if we end up having a girl I have managed to bring my husband around to using Edith. (Hooray!) I had posted a thread earlier about middle names and there were some great suggestions but we seem to have ended up back at Rosalie.

    I know Edith is a bit old lady-ish still so does Rosalie lighten it up or make it seem even older? Opinions and other suggestions would be welcome.

    Thanks!

    I like it a lot. I think Rosalie lightens/brightens up Edith and makes her feel younger.

    I find both of these names very endearing and while Edith does have that old-lady association, I think it has tons of potential for revival -- enabling it to knock that association away a bit. And I agree with previous post about Rosalie. It's a winner all around.

    I love Edith and Rosalie too but I have mixed feelings about the "ee" sounds (Edith has it up front and Rosalie on the end). I think I can put aside that issue because Rosalie is so pretty. Edith is such a serious and stately name that I like to pair it with something a little more quirky.

    I love it, Rosalie freshens and lifts Edith and the flow is perfect.
