Saw this name on TV, never knew it was a 'real' name! Opinions?

I like it smile

Love it. It was top of my shortlist. Then I had a boy.

I've always liked it - only every known one IRL

It's lovely. And fairly timeless.

I know a couple...they all call themselves Ros. What does that tell you? I think it's a pretty name, they obviously disagree!

Prefer Roseanne.

Not keen. I prefer Rosalind.

I used to know a wonderful Rosalie, but for an option try Rosalind, Rosamund or just Rosa.

It's a bit wet and sounds too much like Rosie Lee which is Cockney rhyming slang for cup of tea.

I like it but would assume a twilight connection as it's the only time I've heard it

I like it, there's a Rosalie in Grimm & she rocks!

I really like it, but it's likely to get shortened to Rosie I guess which is pretty popular. It does make me think of Twilight too, but I don't think that's a real reason not to use it. I think it's feminine but not too little girly.

No substance to it. Just pretty for pretty's sake.

I love the name Rosalie (as you might see from my NN) - It's the name of a character in the chalet school books and is top of my list if I ever have a daughter!

Angeladelight Sun 14-Feb-16 12:52:40

I think it's a lovely name, somewhat unusual without being too "out there".

WinterWinnie Sun 14-Feb-16 19:47:21

I like it - I like the NN Rosie too

It's dutch! and was in the top 100 there a few years ago.

There's also a dutch book "klein rosalie iz ziek" for kids.

It's a lovely name, but even with dutch DP I can't use it because of the twilight connection. It'd be all anyone in the UK would know it from.

This is my middle name! Agree that it's unusual without being too "out there". I really didn't like it when I was growing up (sorry) for two reasons - 1) it was just a bit too girlie/pretty and I was a bit of a tom boy and 2) people often think it's "Rosa-Lee" which is just annoying! Saying that, it's grown on me now and I like the nickname Rosie for a first name smile

I think its gorgeous smile so pretty and feminine

EverybodyHatesATourist Tue 16-Feb-16 18:28:44

I like it but I'm an old rocker and it's a Thin Lizzy song.

ThomasRichard Tue 16-Feb-16 18:30:58

I know a small Rosalie.

I personally prefer Rosamund but I wouldn't consider Rosalie as 'out there' or associate the name with Twilight.
