Hmm! I hadn’t considered this as a way to get to Rose.

My mother was Rosaleen. I love this unique beautiful enchanting ultra feminine name. It is mentioned in the poem 'Dark Rosaleen' by Clarence Mangan, where the name is a pseudonym for Ireland itself. My brother is Declan, my daughter is Tara. I'm Monica. The odd one out, no Irish name. its such a lovely name, maybe its just as well its not overused like Aoife or Niamh. There won't be three of them in the classroom.

What about Rosaline?

Ty Says:


I find the sound of this name so elegant, and it gives a fresh and unique spin to Rose that the name can't achieve on its own (in my opinion). My only issue is that I dislike the spelling/look of the name on paper, but there's not too much that can be done about that I'm afraid.

Michaela Says:


This is surprisingly charming! I normally don't care for -leen endings, but here it just works. I think of a white cottage in the woods with pale pink dew-covered roses overflowing a white trellis and picket fence. Delicately crocheted doilies and veils. Little light pink satin slippers. Tea in a bone white teaset served with lemon merengue cookies. Rosaleen carries a lot of charming associations.
