Thoughts on Rosa?

It’s something more than [name_f]Rose[/name_f], but has that simplicity that I love. Used to be extremely common in my grandmother’s and great-grandmother’s time, but not many parents consider it these days. I think it goes well with siblings [name_m]Otto[/name_m], [name_u]Remy[/name_u], [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] and [name_f]Gloria[/name_f]. What do you guys think? It certainly fits in with my love for shorter, simpler names.

I love [name_f]Rosa[/name_f]! Short, feminine and powerful.

I like [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] a lot. I can imagine it suiting both a young girl and woman, and I find it very charming.

I’m a fan of [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] as well. It is simple but not in a boring way. It’s refreshing to see a [name_f]Rose[/name_f] name in the first spot rather than the middle! I think it goes lovely with the sibling names you mentioned.

I like [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] though I would never use it on it’s own due to it meaning “pink” where I live.
I think it has the same vintage charm as [name_m]Otto[/name_m] and [name_f]Gloria[/name_f] but I don’t love it with [name_u]Remy[/name_u] or [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] (though I like it with [name_u]Remi[/name_u] and [name_m]Louis[/name_m]).

[name_m]Otto[/name_m], [name_u]Remy[/name_u] (a boy), [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] and [name_f]Gloria[/name_f] were born quite a while ago. The kids’ names are a bit “mismatched”, because I made an effort to give each of them a name that reflects/reflected a country we were living at the time they were conceived and/or born. Our next baby will be born in Portugal, so I want a name for her that reflects or at least is well-used in this country.

I love [name_f]Rosa[/name_f], its on my own list as well, and I like it with your other children’s names. I think its very cool that you named each of them based on the country you were in at the time. I have to disagree with whoever posted about liking it with [name_m]Louis[/name_m] and [name_u]Remi[/name_u] but not [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] and [name_u]Remy[/name_u]. I see people on here doing that all the time, and its just very nitpicky to me. They sound the same regardless of the spelling, and being that they aren’t kre8iv spellings, I don’t see a problem. Plus I think [name_u]Remi[/name_u] makes [name_u]Remy[/name_u] seem less like a full name and more like a nickname.

[name_f]Rosa[/name_f] is a lovely name! It’s refreshing to see [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] or [name_f]Rose[/name_f] as a first name rather than a middle name or simply discarded because they sound too much like colors, grandma names or whatever. [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] is beautiful, timeless, simple and has a sort of strength that I don’t find in [name_f]Rose[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f]… From your other post, I’m all for [name_f]Diana[/name_f].

^ Compeltely agree. Was going to write almost the same thing.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] your children’s names! Not all sibsets have to have an obvious theme or style. Each child is unique anyway. [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] is so beautiful. I see it as a vintage underused beauty same as [name_f]Gloria[/name_f]. I think that [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] sounds great with the all of your kids names and reflects Portugal well.

[name_m]Just[/name_m] out of curiosity what country does each of your other children’s names reflect?

I wrote that. Since OP asked if we liked [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] with her sibset, I thought I might answer honestly.
To me [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] and [name_m]Louis[/name_m] give of very different vibes. The former feels more English while the latter is definitely more international/European. [name_u]Remy[/name_u] is a legitimate [name_m]French[/name_m] spelling but without the accent it looks way more English/American to me than [name_u]Remi[/name_u] does (plus I think that they might get different pronunciations from English people).
[name_f]Rosa[/name_f], like [name_m]Otto[/name_m] and [name_f]Gloria[/name_f] has a vintage and still a bit clunky vibe to it, or so I think, which is why I really like her with these two.

[name_f]Rosa[/name_f] seems a bit dated to me.

[name_m]Otto[/name_m] and [name_u]Remy[/name_u] for the [name_m]French[/name_m] and [name_m]German[/name_m] parts of Belgium, [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] for the US and [name_f]Gloria[/name_f] for Spain.

[name_u]Remy[/name_u]'s name is actually spelled with an accent and pronounced the [name_m]French[/name_m] way. [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] is also because I love [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] [name_u]Carroll[/name_u]'s “[name_f]Alice[/name_f] in Wonderland”, it was my favorite book growing up. [name_f]Gloria[/name_f] is pronounced the Spanish way as well. Thank you for sharing your opinion, I do appreciate it! We haven’t fully decided on [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] yet. We’ll see when she’s here.
