    Rosie?

    My husband and I are considering naming our first daughter Rosie Eleanore. Rosie is a name we both like, and Eleanore is the name of his grandmother. What do you think? I'd love to get outside opinions!

    I'd name her Rose Eleanore and call her Rosie. Rosie's lovely, but far too cutsey on anyone over 12 (or over 6, in my book). But Rose is absolutely gorgeous and totally underused as a first name and would really stand out in any classroom today, I think.

    My vote goes towards Rose Eleanore, nn Rosie!

    agreed, Rose Eleanor would be beautiful! Rosie is too insubstantial as a formal name.

    I think Rose Eleanore, with the nickname Rosie, is absolutely stunning

    Rose is my favorite name, so I think it's a great choice. :-) As others have said, however, Rosie in and of itself is too nicknamey for a first name, and Rosie won't age well. By naming her Rose Eleanor, she'll have the best of both worlds--Rosie and Rose.

    Oh, yay, this is a beautiful name!! I agree though that Rose or Rosa, nn Rosie would be perfect.
