I love Rosemary. Hands down my absolute favourite 'Rose' name. I love that it is a herb (one of my favourites), and the name 'rosemary' derives from the Latin for 'dew' (ros) and "sea" (marinus), or 'dew of the sea'- in Greek myth it was draped around Aphrodite when she was born out of the sea foam, so that it a pretty nice tidbit. That association was continued into the middle ages, when at weddings, the bride would wear a rosemary headpiece and the groom a sprig of rosemary, symbolic of love. It is also a symbol of remembrance, à la Hamlet.
I also like Rosalba, Rosalie, Rosalind, Rosamund, Rosaline and Rosetta from your list.
Other ones I like:
Primrose, Rosette, Rosabel, Rosabet, Bellerose.Mary Valentine, Tabitha Prairie, Aphra Bram, Vesper Opal, Frances Dove, Shalom Galilee, Easter Paloma, Joan Pepper, Yuki Camellia, Susanna Mercy, Dossie Gardenia.
Morris Noble, Abraham Lou, Enzo Raphael, Obadiah Dove, Dossie Beacon, Zebedee Shalom, Roland Basil, Francis Gardener.
