Want something a bit unusual but no unheard off. Only seen this one a few days ago and love it but even though i can't find any negatives I'm sure you lot can ;)

So here it is........................

Romy

How about Romanie? I wanted that name for my DD but DH said no :-(

I know a delightful little 6 year old Romy

I like it a lot

I went to school with a Roamy. Pronounced same.
Lovely name.

Oh, a google of Romy Schneider suggests it's a derivative of Rosemary

Even better

I have a Romy she is actually a Romilly but we have always called her Romy. We pronounce it Rom-ee. I love Romy Schneider have you seen the Sisi movies. I know another one and have been told there are another couple about locally.

I know 2 with the name pronounced as Row-me, but they both spell it Roumi - one is adult, the other 10, & know of another DD - pretty name though, but I prefer the spelling they use, less likely to get mispronounced as Rommie -

I also know a Rohey, pronounced Raw hie - which I also think is pretty & even less common, so I prefer it

It would make a nice nn for Rosaline/Rosalind?

Tbh I think people would always think it was short for something, if used on its own. Lovely for a little girl but she might want something a bit more substantial for when she picks up her Nobel prize, iyswim.

the female singer of The XX is called Romy
