My husband and I are considering naming our first daughter [name]Rosie[/name] [name]Eleanore[/name]. [name]Rosie[/name] is a name we both like, and [name]Eleanore[/name] is the name of his grandmother. What do you think? I’d love to get outside opinions!

I’d name her [name]Rose[/name] [name]Eleanore[/name] and call her [name]Rosie[/name]. [name]Rosie[/name]'s lovely, but far too cutsey on anyone over 12 (or over 6, in my book). But [name]Rose[/name] is absolutely gorgeous and totally underused as a first name and would really stand out in any classroom today, I think.

My vote goes towards [name]Rose[/name] [name]Eleanore[/name], nn [name]Rosie[/name]!

Oh yes, [name]Rose[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] with nn of [name]Rosie[/name] is beautiful! Go for it!

agreed, [name]Rose[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] would be beautiful! [name]Rosie[/name] is too insubstantial as a formal name.

Or [name]Rosa[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name]

I think [name]Rose[/name] [name]Eleanore[/name], with the nickname [name]Rosie[/name], is absolutely stunning

[name]Rose[/name] is my favorite name, so I think it’s a great choice. :slight_smile: As others have said, however, [name]Rosie[/name] in and of itself is too nicknamey for a first name, and [name]Rosie[/name] won’t age well. By naming her [name]Rose[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name], she’ll have the best of both worlds–[name]Rosie[/name] and [name]Rose[/name].

Oh, yay, this is a beautiful name!! I agree though that [name]Rose[/name] or [name]Rosa[/name], nn [name]Rosie[/name] would be perfect.
