As a Brazilian, this is just one more title of Mary.

Zelliew Says:


For most Catholics I think ROSARY would spring to mind

otheralix Says:


This name doesn't bring rosary to mind at all. Just like all the other Rose names don't. I just figured it was a variation to one of them.

Alsace Says:


I certainly don't see this name as "sacrilegious". It does scream "Catholic" though. Perhaps John Paul or Bernadette aren't obvious enough for some people.

Guest Says:


Has a nice ring to it. I like Rosary by itself but sometimes people say that's sacrilegious. I think naming a kid Christian is sacrilegious tho so to each their own.
