I like the sound of it, and Camrose Snow does sound very pretty

I would be hesitant to pick a place name off a map just based on how it sounds without any connection to the place or any idea of if the place is nice...I grew up in NJ and I can't believe people name their kids Camden!
Camrose sounds pretty, but I like Allison & it's origins and nicknames ect...also I like Camilla Rose nn Camrose (or Cameron Rose if that's more your style?)

I live near Camrose actually, I can't picture it on a child and think it's kind of sily because it's so local to me but I bet people in London, Ireland and other place names think the same. It could be a pretty name if it wasn't so placey to me. Also, I wouldn't suggest just picking a name off a map, every city has a reputation that you may or may not want to associate your child with unknowingly.In Love, Engaged, and Fantasizing about Future Babies!!

I like it, I think it's pretty but I'm not sure about how usable it is. It has regular name elements, Camille and Rose, so that is something good it has going for it. As for place names, a lot of the names used to name places have roots in names originally meant for and still used for people. I Remember hearing that Camden, for example was a Scottish boys first name before becoming a last name/place name. There are a ton of places called Camden all over the world, I'm sure there is more than one Camrose in the world too. My point is that you never know what association anyone will attach to any name, place name or not. If you like a name and could see it working within your child's peer group than go for it. Is Camrose really any more unusual to the average person than say Eulalia, Oceane, or Marigold, which are names that are commonly pushed within baby naming communities (at least they are unusual in my area)?
