Why not both?
Our top two girl names are Rose and Mary. We just cannot decide between the two. DH said, "why not both?" So, now, our top girl name is Rosemary. However, I am at a loss for a middle name. Since both Rose and Mary are family names, I decided that the middle name doesn't have to be (which is good, because we're getting down to names like Beulah and Belva). Some of you already know my penchant for double-barrelled names, like our Grace Patricia "Gracie Pat". Even though Rosemary itself is a double name, I still would like other options when using the middle (like Rosemary Louise nn Rosa Lou or something). What would you pair with Rosemary?Mother to Grace Patricia "Gracie Pat" (Sep. 2008), Eloise Martha "Elsie Mae" (Feb. 2013) & angel baby Jesse

I love Rosemary. Here are a few ideas:
Rosemary Iris - I think Mary Iris would be really cute! The only drawback is that Rosemary and Iris are both botanical.
Rosemary Jean - Could be Rosa Jean, maybe? I think that's nice.
Rosemary Joanna / Rosemary Josephine - Rosa Jo, Rosie Jo, Mary Jo? Any of those are nice.
Rosemary Vivian - This could be Rosa Viv or Rosie Viv, which I think is super cool!
