Ways to Get to Rose
After really thinking about it, I am leaning heavily towards the name Rose as a first name. My husband says it is bit boring though. As a compromise, he would prefer a longer version of the name which can then be shorten to Rose as a nn. I have thought of Rosalie, Rosemary and Rosalind. I would love your opinions on these? Any others that I am missing?
I like Rosalie best, but Rosalind is also beautiful. Not too keen on Rosemary. I'm reminded of the seasoning.
Rozalia (prn: ro ZAHL ya)
Rosamund (prn either: ROSE-a-mund, ROZZ-a-mund, or ROZZ-mund)
I actually don't think Rose is boring at all. I have yet to meet one, in fact. It's short, but short isn't the same as dull.
Rosaline, Rose-Marie, Rosetta, Rosanna, Rosellen
Those are all i can think of. I love Rose-names!
I like Rosalie a lot! Rosemary still feels a little stuffy old lady to me, although I'm warming to it. I'd love to see it used on someone else's baby!
Other ways to get to Rose:
I like Rosalind! Rosalie is okay, but it sounds kind of trendy to me because of Twilight - I feel like it will sink in popularity really fast in a few years.
