I really like it but don't hear it very often. What do you think?

I like it.

I like it and shortlisted the Irish name Róisín for a girl (little rose). I know a grown up Rosie but no kids so its possibly not that common anymore, if that's what you're looking for?

For me it's short for Rosemary or Rosalind or Rosemund. I prefer Rosa if it's for a short name, or Rose.

I like it short for Rose or one of the other Ros- names.

My mums name so I love it smile

I like it. It was on on my girls short list.

Love it. I've heard of quite a few recently, especially Emily Rose...using both names.

I have a friend who is Rose, always known as Rosie, she's in her 30's. I don't know any kids with the name. I like it.

I like it.

It was number 33 in the popularity chart, with 1,475 girls called Rosie in 2014 (Most recent available statistics), in the UK.

I know a lovely young woman called Rosie smile.

Our Rosie is officially a Rosa - once she got to secondary school she chose to use what she considered the more grown up version and only her family and very close friends still call her Rosie

I like it.

I love it, that's why I named my daughter Rosina, but she's generally called Rosie or occasionally Rose (Rosie-posy, rosie-Roo etc).

I am not a fan of Rosie. I find it too sweet. Very cute on a girl under 10 and over 50 but a teenager and into adulthood i am not so sure. Only my opinion though but as everyone else loves it i thought i would offer a dfiferent view point!

There is also a really common trend at the moment to Add the name Rose to other names so i feel its been over used. Rose as name on its own is beautiful and nicknamed Rosie for however long she wants to.

I like Rosie. I know an adult Rosie and feel it works for a child and adult.

YolandiFuckinVisser Mon 18-Jan-16 20:26:59

It's my favourite girls name. I know a couple of adult Rosies and they're awesome. My dd is a Rosie, it suits her very well

I like it but much prefer it as a nn... I think Rose, Rosa, Rosalind, Rosanna, Rosalie are all beautiful and could be shortened to Rosie. Lovely smile

I love the name Primrose so really like Rosie too.

RookieMonster Tue 19-Jan-16 10:10:10

My dd is Rosabel nn Rosie. Lovely name, IMHO ;) but I prefer Rosie as a nn rather than a standalone.

HerdOfRhino Tue 19-Jan-16 10:53:37

Oh, Primrose is lovely.

ollieplimsoles Tue 19-Jan-16 17:40:02

I'm a Rosie smile

As a child I always felt like it was a little bit too 'sweet' which I didn't like because I was a tough cookie- climbing trees and playing football :D but its an easy name to live with and I was complimented many times over it.

It gets shortened to Rose by dh and dsis

I prefer Rose.

HeadfirstForHalos Tue 19-Jan-16 18:35:01

Dd2 is a Rosie so I love it grin

She also got called Rosie Roo, she is 10 now and all her friends call her Roo. She's only ever met one other Rosie.
