Honour Name for Rose

Does anyone have any ideas how to honour a [name_f]Rose[/name_f] in a boys name? I have no problem finding honour names for a girl seeing as the two people I’d love to honour most are female, but I’d like to find some way to honour them thru boys names if/when I do have a boy.
I have considered using [name_f]Rose[/name_f] as a middle name with a more obvious masculine first name, but I know that will never get past my SO!

So how to honour [name_f]Rose[/name_f]?

What about [name_u]Rosario[/name_u]?


Maybe just use the [name_f]Ro[/name_f]- beginning? [name_u]Rowan[/name_u], [name_m]Robert[/name_m], [name_u]Roscoe[/name_u], [name_u]Rory[/name_u].

Maybe just the first and last letters (r & e). [name_u]Reese[/name_u]?

[name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] might work to honor a [name_f]Rose[/name_f].

[name_u]Love[/name_u] the suggestions of [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] and [name_u]Roscoe[/name_u].

What about [name_m]Ross[/name_m]? Or [name_m]Rhodes[/name_m] — the name could be a descendent of rhódon, a Greek word for rose. (Or so says Google.)

Lots of great suggestions so far, I would add [name_u]Penrose[/name_u] and [name_f]Rosen[/name_f]. Girls have all these smoosh names with [name_f]Rose[/name_f] beginning and a common feminine ending, so why not add a masculine ending? [name_m]Den[/name_m], don, son, ton, ten, ben, er…

I’ve thought about this too! It’s a tradition in my family for the first girl to have [name_f]Rose[/name_f] in her name. If I don’t end up having a girl, I’ll like to at least pass [name_f]Rose[/name_f] on to my son. I have thought about using it as a second middle name. Other ideas are [name_m]Rosevelt[/name_m], Rosewood, [name_m]Rosendo[/name_m], [name_m]Roswell[/name_m], Rosalio, Rosedale, Rosefield, [name_f]Rosen[/name_f]

[name_m]Ross[/name_m]! It’s a good, solid name.

I immediately thought of [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m]. [name_m]Eros[/name_m], Melrose, [name_m]Rosevelt[/name_m], Roser, Saphiros, Spyros? I actually really like the idea of [name_f]Rose[/name_f] in the middle for a boy, it’s a nature name [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] or [name_u]Oberon[/name_u] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] sound great to me. Maybe with the spelling Roese? I know [name_m]Roosevelt[/name_m]/[name_m]Rosevelt[/name_m] may be too presidential (if you’re in the US), but it does mean rose field.

[name_u]Royce[/name_u] is a masculine variant of [name_f]Rose[/name_f].

I think [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] or [name_m]Rhodes[/name_m] could definitely work.

I am thrilled with all the responses and suggestions! Thank you berries! I can’t respond to each one individually, but I do appreciate everyone’s input.
I really like the suggestion of [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m], I don’t think it had ever occured to me before that it included the word rose! [name_u]Rosario[/name_u] and Rosalio are very lovely, I love the idea of those and the sound, although I’m not sure if I’d use them irl.
[name_u]Penrose[/name_u] is also a great suggestion! I’ve loved this name for a long time, but for some reason I just hadn’t thought about it recently in relation to [name_f]Rose[/name_f].
I also am really liking the compound [name_f]Rose[/name_f]- names, Rosewood, Rosedale, Rosefield. They feel so earthy and natural.
[name_f]Rosen[/name_f] is very handsomely simple too.
Thanks again for the many lovely ideas!

Ross. [name_f]Roos[/name_f] (technically a girl’s but seems really masculine to me). [name_u]Royce[/name_u]. AMbrose.

There is a male character whose last name is Rosewood which he goes by in his everyday life. It would make a great unisex middle name imo.

[name_u]Rosario[/name_u]- I was literally talking about this name on here a few days back, so cool for a boy.

I like the suggestion if [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] [name_u]Penrose[/name_u] and [name_u]Roscoe[/name_u]


Another fan of [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] here. ([name_f]My[/name_f] boy name is [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] and my girl name is [name_f]Rose[/name_f]).
