So far we have:

Rosie
Alice
Bronwen

Opinions? First or second names smile

Nothing beginning with J or H due to sibling or last name

Rosie Alice is lovely. not bronwen, sorry

but I would name her Rosemary or Rosamund on her birth certificate.

think ahead, when she's top corporate lawyer or brain surgeon she might not want to be called Rosie!wink

I really like Alice..nice for a child or an adult.

SilverBirdie Sun 16-Jun-13 08:44:16

I adore Alice and think it's more grown up than Rosie though I do like that too. How about Rosalie?
Alice Rosalie together is nice smile

Bronwen is lovely,I know a very sweet 6yr old one smile

I like Bronwen Roselie

Absolutely love both Rosie and Alice (don't think Rosie needs longer name on bc). Not sure about Bronwyn, sounds harsh to me next to those gorgeous girly names. If it has special meaning to you maybe use as a middle name.

I like Alice.
I prefer Rose with the nickname Rosie.

Bronwen is quite nice, but I prefer it spelt Bronwyn.

They are all gorgeous.

I think Bronwyn will stand out most (in a good way) once she starts school, Rosie and Alice are more girlie and there are lots of little girls with girly names around.... Bronwyn had good girlie nickname potential (Bea, Bonnie, Winnie) so the best of both worlds!

Alice

Alice

fussychica Sun 16-Jun-13 15:59:25

Alice (would have been my DS's name if he had been a DD) we were going with Alice May but Alice Rose is lovely too.

Littlecherublegs Sun 16-Jun-13 16:47:57

I like Bronwen.

Think Alice and Rosie are a little 'wet' somehow (sorry).

Dont mind Rosa though... or Anna...

AmIGoingMad Sun 16-Jun-13 16:52:39

I like both Alice and Rose but I'm not as keen on Bronwyn.

AmIGoingMad Sun 16-Jun-13 16:53:24

Sorry Rosie not Rose( although Rose us very nice too)!

AllegraLilac Sun 16-Jun-13 18:39:23

Apparently it is spelled Bronwyn when used for a girl?

I only like the Bronwen spelling, and have gone off the name since being corrected by Mumsnet.

AllegraLilac Sun 16-Jun-13 18:40:25

I should say 'corrected' by Mumsnet, in the most Mumsnetty sense.

There are plenty of women who spell it Bronwen.

betsybo Sun 16-Jun-13 18:46:14

I love Alice Rosalie. Very pretty.

Bronwen is nice but not as keen.

pegster Sun 16-Jun-13 19:16:01

Definitely Bronwen - lovely name & this is the correct welsh spelling (Wyn in male)

TangfasticMrFoxalastic Sun 16-Jun-13 21:46:15

There's a Welsh part of the family, definitely Bronwen for a girl, as 'wyn' is masculine. Makes me wonder if she'd have trouble with people spelling it as we're in England

Good point about Rosie, would probably go for Rose but nn Rosie.

Was reminded today about Violet...

I'm sure our boy wasn't that difficult to name. Thanks for the opinions smile

siluria Mon 17-Jun-13 08:43:40

We're about to have an Alice and can't decide on middle name, though variations of Rose are on our list smile

So I vote Alice Rosalie - very pretty x

I like both Alice and Rose very much. Bronwen sounds clumpy to me.

Rose v much underused as a first name. Lovely.
