Katherine Rose or Sophie Rose.

The hyphen cheapens both names IMO.

Good choices in names! Mines Katie and my younger Sis is Sophie smile I personally prefer Sophie out of the two names though! I think Sophia Rose sounds lovely together though

Why hyphenate if you're only planning to use the first part anyway? (Genuine question)

Catherine Rose, NN Katie is a pretty, classic name.

Sophie Rose or even nicer IMO Sophia Rose.

It's a family tradition to have -Rose stuck onto the end of things? That's a tradition I'd start to break. Obviously, if Rose is a family name. It makes a perfectly nice middle name. Or first name. But not an ultra naff cutesy hyphenation.

And Katie isn't a name, it's a nickname.

Katharine Rose
Catherine Rose
Katherine Rose
Sophie Rose
Sophia Rose

All lovely names.

I would choose whichever one suits her best. A Katie has a different look from a Sophie.

Katie. No -Rose.

If it had to be hyphened, Katie-Fay

Sophie is better but neither would be my choice. Definitely don't hyphen.

Kate is lovely

ems1910 Thu 25-Jul-13 18:51:47

Katie but I would give Katherine (or Catherine I prefer) as a given name or Kate.

Sophie is very lovely too.

Neither of them hyphenated for me but you didn't ask that lol smile

Sophie.

no hyphen

Onesleeptillwembley Thu 25-Jul-13 18:46:15

Don't hyphenate. She won't thank you, it's naff thanks, ma and pa.

The hyphenated isn't negotiable as its family tradition although only the first part will be used anyway.

Cordial Thu 25-Jul-13 18:38:14

I prefer Katie.

Not mad about it hypenated though not what you asked but I prefer an 'a' ending name for hyphenated names. E.g Ella-rose

I'm not sure why I say this because Katie Rose would make a lovely first and second name! smile

ProudNeathGirl Thu 25-Jul-13 18:37:34

Katherine, shortened to Katie. Katie isn't a name, it's a nn.
Also not hyphenated.

MagicBaguette Thu 25-Jul-13 18:36:31

Sophie, not hyphenated with Rose.

Why does it have to be hyphenated?

ruledbyheart Thu 25-Jul-13 18:34:34

I can't decide, neither can DP.
Either name will be hyphenated with Rose.
So Sophie-Rose OR Katie-Rose?
