Thoughts on MN Rosemarine?
What do y'all think of "Rosemarine" as a middle name?
My husband and I came up with it in a roundabout way... I really want to honor my grandmother whose name was Lina (which I think is beautiful), but for a number of reasons I can't use that name. One of my fondest memories of/with her is getting sent out into the garden to pick herbs for whatever delicious meal she was cooking. Because of her Swiss-Italian heritage/accent, she always pronounced "Rosemary" as "Rosemarine". To this day, whenever think of the word rosemary, in my head I call it rosemarine. I think it would be a unique, special way to honor her memory, but I'm worried that it sounds like a made-up name and is just too different. Thoughts?Expecting Baby #1 in June 2015!

While I tend to not care for non-traditional takes on names, I really like the sentiment behind Rosemarine. Since it's in the middle spot, I think it works just fine. It'll make a great story to tell your daughter when she's older.-Athena

I love the meaningful reason for you wanting to use Rosemarine. I think the message behind the name makes it very lovely and special. I think it would be sweet to use this as a middle name to honor your grandmother.
