Rosalie - too twilight?

I love [name]Rosalie[/name]! It’s so girly, and has the cute nn [name]Rosie[/name]. But is it too twilight? Any middle names for [name]Rosalie[/name]? I quite like [name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Olivia[/name], but is that too long? And could [name]Lia[/name] also be a nickname, or would it be too much of a stretch?
Also would [name]Rosalie[/name] and [name]Vivienne[/name] make good names for sisters? Are there any nicknames for [name]Vivienne[/name] besides [name]Viv[/name]? And any middle names that you can think of?
Sorry for the 21 questions!
Thanks! :slight_smile:

[name]Rosalie[/name] is definitely very Twilight right now, but it’s still really pretty! If that’s your favorite, go with it. Maybe to get to [name]Rosie[/name] you could try [name]Rosalina[/name] (a personal favorite, though rather trendy), [name]Rosamund[/name], or even just [name]Rose[/name]. There are many international variations as well- [name]Arrosa[/name] (Basque) [name]Ruzena[/name], [name]Ruzenka[/name] (Czech) [name]Rosine[/name], [name]Rosette[/name], [name]Roselle[/name] (French) [name]Ro[/name]”s”n, [name]Ro[/name]”s (Irish Gaelic) [name]Rosetta[/name], [name]Rosana[/name], [name]Rosina[/name], [name]Rosa[/name], [name]Roseta[/name] (Italian) [name]Rozycka[/name], [name]Rozalia[/name], [name]Rasine[/name] (Polish) [name]Ruzha[/name], [name]Ruza[/name] (Russian) [name]Rosita[/name] (Spanish) [name]Roza[/name] (Yiddish).

I also love [name]Vivienne[/name]! There’s [name]Vivi[/name], [name]Viv[/name], or [name]Vinny[/name] (cute!), or [name]Ann[/name]/e, if you wanted something different.

[name]Hope[/name] I helped! :slight_smile:

I don’t think it’s too Twilight. Twilight will fade after the last movie comes out, anyway. [name]Rosalie[/name] is lovely! [name]Rosie[/name] is an adorable nickname, and [name]Lia[/name] would definitely work. And there’s always [name]Rosa[/name], which is my name. [name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] is pretty!

[name]Rosalie[/name] and [name]Vivienne[/name] are gorgeous together! Nicknames for [name]Vivienne[/name] could be [name]Vivi[/name], V, Vien, [name]Enna[/name], [name]Via[/name], or [name]Viva[/name].

Well, my newborn son is [name]Edward[/name] and I’m not overly worried about it. Frankly I think Twilight will be gone in a couple of years and none of the names in it are ones that I think will exclusively conjure Twilight for years to come. Mainly they’re all classic, Victorian/vintage names that were being revitalized anyway.

I wish Twilight didn’t exist because it makes normal people feel like they can’t use the fantastic names within the series. I would have used [name]Alice[/name], [name]Rosalie[/name], [name]Jasper[/name] and [name]Emmett[/name] for my children. All of them are beauties.

I don’t think [name]Rosalie[/name] is too Twilight. I think it’s a really sweet name and fits in with the not-so-classy names like [name]Kayleigh[/name] and [name]Khloey[/name] but without sounding like a child or stripper. I also really love [name]Rosaline[/name] and [name]Rosalina[/name]. [name]Rosie[/name] and [name]Rosalie[/name] could be nicknames for both.

[name]Rosalie[/name] and [name]Olivia[/name] are both pretty vowel and L heavy, plus soft sounding, so together, they sort of sound like a song. Too cutesy to really flow well, you know?

[name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Clara[/name]
[name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Natalia[/name]
[name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Brook[/name]

[name]Rosalie[/name] and [name]Vivienne[/name] would make a beautiful pair. So classy and elegant. [name]Viv[/name] and [name]Vivi[/name] are probably going to be the most commonly used nickname for a vivienne but you could try: [name]Enna[/name], [name]Vienna[/name], [name]Via[/name], Ienne ([name]Ian[/name]?), or [name]Eve[/name] (stretch?).

Sorry if I repeated anyone. I started this hours and hours ago but got sidetracked!

Something to remember is that by the time any kids born now are aware of anything pop culture, the whole twilight thing will be long gone. think about other cheesy pop culture phenomenons-- like ‘Charmed’ for instance. there were characters on that show named [name]Rose[/name], [name]Phoebe[/name] (right?), etc… I don’t associate those names with the now defunct TV show. I think the names on these shows often just reflect an aesthetic that people already are starting to pay attention to rather than the other way around.

No, [name]Rosalie[/name] is not too Twilight! It is such a gorgeous name! It’s one of my personal favorites. I love everything about it. And really, [name]Rosalie[/name] is an interesting character in the books and she’s supposed to be the most beautiful woman you can imagine. I don’t know if you’ve read the books, but she is one of my favorite characters (not in the movie though). If Twilight proves to be a cult favorite and not just a flash in the pan, I think she would enjoy sharing a name with one oof the characters.

It’s fantastic with [name]Vivienne[/name]! [name]Rosie[/name] and [name]Vivi[/name], [name]Rose[/name] and [name]Viv[/name]. I actually can’t think of a more perfect pairing! Oh, and I think [name]Lia[/name] would work, but I prefer [name]Rose[/name], and it keeps more with the spirit of the name [name]Rosalie[/name], in my opinion. And I think [name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] is beautiful, not too long at all!

" there were characters on that show named [name]Rose[/name], [name]Phoebe[/name] (right?)"

Nerd Allert: The actress was [name]Rose[/name] McGowan, she played [name]Paige[/name]. All the girls had P names. [name]Prudence[/name] “[name]Pru[/name]”, [name]Piper[/name], [name]Phoebe[/name] and [name]Paige[/name].

ah… I had a feeling I was getting it wrong there. But yeah, the only name I would associate with that series alone is [name]Piper[/name]… because it’s sort of a trendy name to begin with. The others would still seem usable to me. Granted maybe Twilight is bigger than Charmed ever was, but as far as associations I do think if a name is fairly classic it has enough other associations to ground it.

Nope! I’m only 13, and not too into twilight, but believe me, no one goes around saying “[name]Rosalie[/name] is my fave character!” Now if you wanted to name your child [name]Edward[/name], [name]Jacob[/name] (not [name]Jake[/name], surprisingly), or [name]Isabella[/name]/[name]Bella[/name], yeah, I’d be worried. But since [name]Rosalie[/name] isn’t mentioned too much in the series, and as fast as twi-obsessors will settle down after Breaking [name]Dawn[/name]'s buzz is over, I say go for it! No one in their generation will think twice anyway, right? Right.

I just don’t really think [name]Isabella[/name] or [name]Jacob[/name] or [name]Edward[/name] are really problems. The first two were the number one names (or at least number two) in the country before Twilight hit. They were definitely in the water supply of their own accord. [name]Edward[/name]'s a classic and has just been around forever – it only moved up a couple notches in popularity post-Twilight. When I tell people my baby’s name they don’t say, ‘oh, like in Twilight’. Usually they say, ‘oh, he looks like an [name]Edward[/name]’ or ‘[name]Gee[/name], my dad’s name!’ or ‘[name]Do[/name] you call him [name]Teddy[/name] or [name]Eddie[/name]’–it’s a name that still pretty much stands on its own. But of course, I’m sure it would be different if I were surrounded by Twilight fans, or worked at a high school or something. Bottom like is I think it’s a flash in the pan as far as associations are concerned. Some people will make the connection, for maybe the next 3 years. Then after that it’s just a name that’s always been around anyway.
