any preference or opinions? x

I think Rose is a cyclical name, so will date. I would go Latin and choose Rosa instead, it's a little bit more unusual and somehow more exciting!

Rose is lovely if a bit tired at the moment. Lara seems fresher to me.

Also love Tabitha.

Lara is lovely.

Lara would suit a grown up woman more than Rose, I think. The problem with cute names is I can never imagine a 40 year old with a job and kids being called that name.

Still like the name Lara smile

Lara. Or how about Lorna?

As long as you have a few possibles then you can decide when you meet her. my colleague went right to the wire with her boy and decided on the way to register office at 6 weeks. And come to think of it, my other friend changed her son's name when he was 18 months old because it didn't suit him!

What about Araminta? Minty for short.

ha! Have found settling on a name a complete farce and so difficult though...think I've found the 'one' about four times now then within two weeks am back to square one!

Matilda has lots of cute shortening a - Tilly, Tils, Tilda, Matty. Mum abut, you are making me broody for a girl baby! I only have boys...

Argh, DH has announced he prefers Matilda to Rose

libertyflip Fri 22-Feb-13 21:57:30

Oh sorry, just saw you only want Rose as first name. Tis nice.

libertyflip Fri 22-Feb-13 21:55:09

Like Lara but love Lyra more. Rose is nice but prefer it as a middle name.

Lyra Rose is fabbie imo!

think I can sneak it in as a MN - Rose Tabitha / Lara Tabitha

mummabug Fri 22-Feb-13 21:51:50

I LOVE Tabitha and would use it in a heartbeat but DH does not like hoo sad x

mummabug Fri 22-Feb-13 21:45:33

I'm avoiding MN Rose, it would only be an option as first name....I like both Lara and Rose but DH only likes Rose....conundrum!

Other options that DH likes are Matilda or Perdy. I've gone off of both of these though!

Confuseddd Fri 22-Feb-13 21:45:21

Have you thought of Rosa? Only second thoughts are That Rose reminds me of Rose West - sorry, not a good association.

Confuseddd Fri 22-Feb-13 21:43:40

I adore Lara because of the film Dr Zhivago. Rose is lovely too.
