Too much of a mouthful? Too boring?

It's the only thing on which DH and I can agree if this one turns out to be a DD3 (we've used up all the other names we love!)

It's beautiful smile

I love it. Also like Elizabeth Rose.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sun 07-Feb-16 22:16:49

Both lovely names but Elizabeth Rose sounds better

We very nearly had an Elizabeth Rose. Lovely names but prefer them that way around if I'm honest

Wishful80sMontage Sun 07-Feb-16 22:42:06

I think Elizabeth Rose flows better too op and Elizabeth has lots of fab possible nn so never boring either

NadiaWadia Sun 07-Feb-16 23:00:01

Very nice.

Lovely. I know one and I love her too grin

Rose is such a wonderful first name.

Beautifulsmile Both ways

I have a Rosie Elizabeth and love it.

Great choice.

This is the most beautiful name.
I believe it belonged to the mother of President Kennedy. I might need to check that.

Thanks! Wouldn't go the other way around as one of our DDs has a name too similar to Elizabeth, and both our daughters have 'E' middle names so we thought we'd continue the pattern

I'm very biased as we have a Rosie Elisabeth.

It's a beautiful classic, not "boring" at all (whatever that even means in the context of names).

I also wouldn't get too hung up on flow - put the name you like best first as you'll be using that on its own at least 99% of the time. The number of times I've said (as opposed to written) my kids' full names is very small.

Go for it!

Great taste Sick

firefly78 Sun 07-Feb-16 23:13:58

those are my daughters two middle names smile

LaceyLee Sun 07-Feb-16 23:15:24

Love this name, both on my list if I ever have another dd. Very elegant

DramaAlpaca Sun 07-Feb-16 23:16:23

Beautiful name.

DH prefers Rose Evelyn, which I also think is pretty. But I think Rose Elizabeth is a bit stronger ...

Rose is our current top choice if DC is a girl, most likely Rose Elsie. So obviously I think it's a beautiful name and Elizabeth is one we've considered too except not a fan of Liz/Lizzie so perfect as a mn smile

Rose Elizabeth much better than Rose Evelyn.

He also likes Rose Felicity or Rose Naomi for their connotations of happiness. We have often toyed with the middle name 'Joy', which wouldn't work here at all!

Rose Elizabeth is my favourite.

Rose yes smile but elizabeth is too sensible for me. Unsure why I think sensible :/ maybe the royal connection. Also makes me think stroppy and bossy....must have been one in a previous life HA.

I like the 'sounds' of Naomi.

Best of luck, Im no way near with names yet! ahhh

I know a lot of people on MN frown on the "chosen nicknames" thing, but I think with pretty much all of the combinations you've listed a longer first name goes better if you're saying the full name. What about Rosalin/Rosamund/Rosemary or similar, with Rose as the day to day nickname?
