Xanthe is a winner and goes well with the surname.  MN fits but a non-default MN that flows as well would be good.

I'm warming to Xanthe as a name - it's not my favourite but I'm starting to appreciate it.

I'm kinda over Rose as a MN and I think that the name Xanthe demands something a little more striking.

It's NMS but I can see why others love it and I think it all goes well together.

Xanthe is not a name I would have ever considered however when I saw your post I couldn't not post because it looks beautiful written down. Especially with the mn combo.

Hmm, maybe one to add to the list wink.gif

Beautiful choice!

The only reason *I* wouldn't use it is I know a Xanthe Rose who I dislike.  But it is a beautiful name without that personal link.

This caught my eye.  My niece's name is Xanthe Rose.   original.gif

She gets called Rosie by her family as a nickname.

It's a lovely name.

I want to have a third child that is a girl so I can call her Xanthe. Can't say I'm a huge fan of Rose but it does sound ok together.

Agree with both.

Xanthe as a first name is totally inspired. It's such a gorgeous, elegant & underused name.

Rose is lovely but way overdone as a middle name -- probably because it, like Grace, "goes with everything."

I would be inclined to search for something a little more distinctive in the middle spot. Do you have any family members you'd like to honor?

On another site I sometimes visit (UK based), Xanthe Christabel was getting a lot of love.  original.gif

There are so many middle names that would pair up well with Xanthe yet aren't super popular. If I weren't so tired, I'd share a bunch of them (hopefully, other EBers will help out)

Best of luck with your decision.

I know I'm the odd one out but it really does nothing for me at all. Perhaps something other than Rose might lift it up for me a bit.  blush.gif
