I am pregnant with number 3 and have been tossing Rosemary around since DD2's pregnancy. I love it, it is the top of my list and DH loves it too, but it is second on his list.
WDYT of Rosemary?
Our other girls are Madeleine Joan and Eleanor Josephine. Do you think it goes nicely with my daughters names?
They get Maddie and Ellie, so I thought Rosie went quite well for nicknames!
Middle name is looking like it could possibly be Patricia.

Sorry OP don't like Rosemary but love Rosie
If the baby is a girl when born and you plan on calling her Rosie all the time why not just make that her name?

She won't be just called Rosie, that will be her nickname. Plus, I like having a longer, more formal name for the girls to choose what they want to be called when they are older.
All of my girls get called by their formal names every day, as well as their nicknames and baby names that have sprouted up over time.
We loved Rose, as a full name, but our surname starts with S so it just runs into it and sounds horrible.

I really love it OP, it's really beautiful.
I'm curious as to what your DHs first pick is?

I love Rosemary and I think it goes beautifully with your other girls names.

I have always loved Rosemary and it is perfect with your other girls' names.
Don't let anyone talk you out of it.
Posted 28 January 2013 - 09:54 PM
I Think its a beautiful name, but its even more stunning with your other girls names
Posted 28 January 2013 - 09:55 PM
I prefer Rosamund or Rosalie but Rosemary is ok too. They all go well with your other daughter's names.

I'm not keen personally (I think of lamb roast), but I will definitely admit they all make a great sibset together.

I like Rosemary but I love Rosie. I have known a few adult Rosemary's and they have always been lovely people so good associations for me.

Sorry, you can't use that name. It's my DDs. I 'owe' the name
All in seriousness Rosemary goes well with Madeleine. I like it and would use it. Even if you call her Rosie 99% of the time. It's what I do.

Not a name I would use, but I actually think it goes perfectly with your other two daughters names!

I like it - very pretty name and it goes well with your existing daughters names.
Posted 28 January 2013 - 10:42 PM
I love it, I do slightly prefer Rosemarie though, but it's a winning name and goes lovely with your other daughters names.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 09:07 AM
I love it! It's one of my favourites. Love the nn Rosie too, and I agree it makes a perfect sibset.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 09:12 AM
Or you could go with Rosemarie or Rosemaree.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 09:12 AM
It's a great name and will suit at all ages. I know a really nice Rosemary and she has always just been called Rosemary, even as a child.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 01:14 PM
I don't mind it, but I prefer Rosalie. Love the NN Rosie
