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.

Thanks! original.gif

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 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.

Tastes good on lamb....

I prefer Rosalie.

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.

#14 Madnesscraves

Posted 28 January 2013 - 10:13 PM

Sorry, you can't use that name. It's my DDs. I 'owe' the name Tounge1.gif

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. original.gif

I love it, I do slightly prefer Rosemarie though, but it's a winning name and goes lovely with your other daughters names.

I love it!  It's one of my favourites.  Love the nn Rosie too, and I agree it makes a perfect sibset.

Rosemary is a classic.  I also like Rosina.

#21 9ferals

It's pretty.
Or you could go with Rosemarie or Rosemaree.

#22 Feral Grey Mare

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.

#23 tres-chic

Posted 29 January 2013 - 12:29 PM

I find it really dated.

Love Rose though.

#24 ~Peaches~

Posted 29 January 2013 - 01:14 PM

I don't mind it, but I prefer Rosalie. Love the NN Rosie wub.gif

#25 la di dah

Posted 29 January 2013 - 02:58 PM

I love it. I campaign for it periodically. I love the floral aspect and the "rememberance" meaning.

However I'd prefer Romy (which is fairly traditional as a NN for Rosemary) or even Rory (which isn't) to Rosie. I'm not fond of Rosie at all.

I'm extremely fond of Rosemary, Rose, Rosamund, and Rosalba. I actively dislike Rosalie and am middling cool on Rosalita and Rosabel.
