Alabama Gypsy Rose
I read that some star named their baby Alabama Gypsy Rose a few years ago. I LOVE the name, but my guy, mom and everybody else hates it. I really like "Gypsy Rose" but again, everybody hates it!!! It's not ugly. I really think it's different and cute. Alabama Gypsy Rose or just Gypsy Rose. Thoughts?? :roll: :sad:

#1 Too many word names for one little child. 3 word names are OTT because it sounds like the parent is talking about the name of a plant or describing a type of flower. Think along the lines of Georgia Peach.
Place name +(derogatory) term for the Romani people + Flower = sentence.
#2 People consider the word gypsy to be a derogatory term used to describe the Romani people. It is a controversial choice.
I understand the appeal due to the frilliness of the name, but for these reasons I can't get on board with this name.
