Roosevelt was my Pop-Pop's middle name, first name Theodore. I always thought his parents were just a big fan of the president, but it's cool to learn that this was actually a trending name for many African-American families of my Pop's generation. Definitely adding this to my list for a mn.

The conundrum is if NN "Roose" could be pronounced as "Rosy," and not like "Moose" with an R.

I think this could be a cool girls name, too.
