What do you think of the name Rose?

I know it is typically used as a middle name, but I think that it’s beautiful as a first name too. Not too popular, and seems very classic to me.
I love my little sister’s name ([name]Louise[/name] [name]Gabrielle[/name] [name]Rose[/name]), and thought [name]Rose[/name] as a first name would be the perfect way to honour her. I’m not pregnant, just very keen on names!

My thoughts about middle names:
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Aurelia[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Olivia[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Juliana[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Valentina[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Isabella[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] Am”lie
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]

With a 3 syllable last name.

I absolutely love [name]Rose[/name] as a first name! So sweet and classy and yet somewhat distinctive as a first name.

I have [name]Rose[/name] [name]Aurelia[/name] at the top of my own list, so that definitely gets my vote :wink:

I love [name]Rose[/name]. My daughter’s mn is [name]Rose[/name], and my great grandmother’s name was [name]Rose[/name]. The only concern I have ever had was that I like names to have more than one syllable. I have had many names that I liked which I wouldn’t even consider b/c of it only having one syllable. So, personally, I would have a different variation of [name]Rose[/name] - [name]Rosa[/name], [name]Rosabelle[/name], [name]Rosemary[/name], etc. We are actually choosing a variation of [name]Rose[/name] for our daughter’s name - we’ve narrowed it down to [name]Rosaelia[/name] and [name]Rozlin[/name].

These are my two favorite out of your list.

[name]Rose[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] Am”lie

I love [name]Rose[/name] as a first name and only for a first name, it makes me feel all warm inside

feeling quite embarrassed now, I just thought that it sounded so familiar!

but wow thank you, I love it too :slight_smile:

I like the name [name]Rose[/name] and I do like floral names, however, I just don’t think that [name]Rose[/name] works as a first name very well. If you’re going with the floral names, may I suggest a few?


I think [name]Rose[/name] would only really work with another short last name and no middle name. It’s such a simple and sweet name that anything too long would muddle it.
