I feel like this sounds far too grown-up for a baby but I do really like it. What do others think?

it's a lovely name and she won't be a baby for long.
she can aspire to be like Rosa Parks!

Very pretty.

Have to disagree, don't think it sounds too grown-up for a baby in fact I think it sounds great for a baby or a grown-up. I'm not a big fan of cutesy baby names though, always think that you should choose a more adult sounding name as they will spend the large proportion of their life living as an adult.

I think it's lovely.

I absolutely love this.

Didn't go for it purely because I am a little bit Jonathan Ross in the way I pronounce my R's.

I strongly don't like it.
I know a lovely 13yo with the name but I still cringe at it. I keep thinking "Pink"? They named their daughter "pink"? confused Yes I know it means "Rose", too, but I prefer "Rose". Rosemary even better.

I prefer it to Rose. In fact, I love it. I know one very feisty and lovely little Rosa.

lovely girls,lovely names smile

FriggFRIGG Sun 12-Jun-11 17:32:21

i think Roza is known as Rozalka in Czech though...

I don't think it does sound too old for a baby. People are giving their babies names such as Mabel and Ethel these days so I don't think Rosa's too old.

It's a very pretty name. A baby won't always be a baby and Rosa is great on a teenager and adult. The reverse however isn't always true and the cutesy flowery names such as Daisy or Poppy may not work on an adult whereas they work for young children.

Fabulous name.

She won't be a baby for long.

I hate it. I just think of an middle aged Spanish cleaning lady when I hear it. Much prefer Rose, Rosie or Roseanne.

franke Mon 13-Jun-11 09:33:06

I like it.

MollysChamber Mon 13-Jun-11 09:34:37

I really like it.

Which is unusual for these threads.

Not too grown up at all.

Jojay Mon 13-Jun-11 09:38:18

I love it, and I know a 2 yo Rosa who it suits perfectly.

Go for it.

PurpleStrawberry Mon 13-Jun-11 10:01:19

I absolutely love it.

Remember, you're not just naming a baby, you're naming a person for life.

lindy100 Mon 13-Jun-11 12:44:58

I love it.

telsa Mon 13-Jun-11 12:48:40

gorgeous - elegant and also suits a little one, I think.
