Cute name - gets butchered by broad accents though - Roh-Zee becomes Rao-zee in Australia or some US accents which can be grating

My niece Rosalyn's nickname is Rosie. Very sweet name, full of character!

I get a very different feel from sweet little Rosie when compared to other Rose names. There's something fresh-faced and bright-eyed about Rosie that makes me smile when I say it. Lovely as a nickname, maybe a little juvenile as a full first name.

Probably the only nickname name that I would use as a full. It's too cute! :) and much softer/more usable than Poppy.
