The name is of German origin, and it means PinkyLips in loose translation. It became popular thanks to 2 German musical compositions, one which is now pretty much obscure is an instrumental piece by Franz Schubert, called by some the father of classical music. But I suspect parents might be more interested in the other Rosamunde, which is a truly delightful love song, lyrics were written by Klaus Wunderlich, it's a tune known in U.S. as Beer Barrel Polka by Bohemian composer Jaromír Vejvoda who sold all copyright to America. Was no.1 hit in 1939. The original in Czech shows circumspection, as perhaps that of a smaller nation, the lyrics are sad, and hopeless, while the Americans made it into a real riot, having good time, joyful, and exuberant. That leaves the rest of us, the romantic types, to enjoy the German Rosamunde, and also serve as an idea for future parents. This version enjoys enormous popularity up to this day as evidenced by the clicks on youtube. I couldn't find any English translation, the one made by a computer is a disaster, so I translated it myself, here are the lyrics then, line by line, you'll be the judge:

Rosamunde

I've been for ages now
With Rosamunde in love,
I know it in my mind
This she must find out
When I see her lips
With their happy laugh
All I would like to do
Is what I can do to kiss her.

But today for sure, I'm going to approach her,
So much reason I have for that,
I'm just going to come right up to her
And tell her how much I love her.

If she then says no, I don’t care,
I'm not going to wait for another time,
I’ll just take her in my arms
And tell her as nicely as I can:

Rosamunde, give me your heart and say yes,
Rosamunde don’t ask your mom first,
Rosamunde believe me, I'm true to you,
As of now Rosamunde
my heart is still free for you.

She still lets me wait,
Laughs only from a distance
I’d really like to know
If others also do that.
Like a hidden flower
Yet still so close
When I again see her
I tend to wait some more.

But today for sure, I'm going to approach her,
So much reason I have for that,
I'm just going to come right up to her
And tell her how much I love her.
If she then says no, I don’t care,
I'm not going to wait for another time,
I’ll just take her in my arms
And tell her as nicely as I can:

Rosamunde, give me your heart and say yes,
Rosamunde don’t ask your mom first,
Rosamunde believe me, I'm true to you,
As of now Rosamunde
my heart is still free for you.
