Hopefully your surname isn't Stone.

Stone was my first thought too.

Surname is not Stone! Could be awkward if she wanted to marry one in the future I suppose

Thought of Stone straight away...

'Why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?'

From Life of Brian. Maybe any 'retta' name would evoke this response, but such as it is, you have it.

Obviously Stone too... a bit too weird?

pretty, rolls off the tongue well!

I've heard it used as a affectionate form of Rosa in Italy.

Lovely. Considered it myself but went with Roseanna

notallytuts Tue 13-Nov-12 17:50:27

wondering if rosita might be a better option

One of my middle names, I've only had good responses all my life. Especially when I moved to Italy, every time I had to fill out paperwork they loved it (probably because it was coupled with Beatrice!)

I've always maintained had I been given it as a first name I'd have preferred Etta as abbreviation though.

Stone, sorry grin

Might put her off smoking weed when she gets to be a teenager though. "Rosetta, are you STONED? Durr hur hurrrr."

prefer the other Rose names - love Rosa and Rosanna. also love Rosabella, but don't think i'd ever have the bollocks to use it.

Rosalind is lovely too.
