Relative just names their baby this. Not sure if I like it or not. Can't make my mind up whether it's gorgeous or just too flowery smile

Gorgeous, I have one! Love it as everyone can say and spell it but it isn't that common

It's lovely, a combination of two classic names that run together beautifully without sounding frilly. And if she turns out to be a more minimalist type of person, she can abbreviate to either Rose or Anna.

My big Sis is one and I always preferred her name to mine growing up. She's Rosey to her friends.

A very timeless classic name. Lovely choice for a baby aswell as an adult.

I like it. It was on my list, but DH didn 't like it.

It's the name of the singer Chris de Burgh's daughter, and he wrote a song called for her called For Rosanna. I like the name.

Lovely name

Do you like the song Rosanna? That popped into my head when I read your thread title. (Think by Toto?)

Ooh, like it.

Totally love Rosanna. Have been bigging it up (along with Susannah) on Mumsnet for years.

Interesting take on the baby names topic = use it to sound out opinions on another person's choice hmm

I think it is pretty

That is the name I've always wanted for my DD. unfortunately I've had to pick the name of a relative who has recently passed away, so am using it as a middle name instead. Go for it!

Here you can find:
Rosanna (row-zanna)
Rossana (ross-arna)
Rossanna (ross-anna)

Most of the ones I know are Rossana. I always pn it wrong and get told off. I don't like it, but that's because I suppose it's a bit middle aged 40something here, which I guess it isn't in the UK.

How would everyone pronounce it? I thought it was Rose anna?

Exhaustipated Thu 02-May-13 14:12:06

Forgot to say I love it. Was on shortlist for DD but DH not keen.

Minty82 Thu 02-May-13 20:11:31

Absolutely love it -it's the name of a very good friend and I loved the idea of naming DDI after her, but DH doesn't like 'spliced together names'. I had to ditch Marianne on the same grounds, which I also think is gorgeous.

My name is Rosanne - I love Rosanna. It's very similar to mine and I think they're so feminine and have always loved it. Different but classic.
