I don't know if we are brave enough to use this name!

We went on a trip to Australia; there's a really beautiful bird - we feel in love with the name of it, so it's basically a nature name!

There was only 5 girls given the name in 2014, in the UK...

The name is Rosella...

I'm just not sure we are brave enough to use it though! I love that she could be called Rose/Rosie/Ella/Elle/Ellie, etc.

I'd call her by Rosella though, maybe Rose for short.

We have not told family yet, but I know my mum will hate it.

What do you think? If not, she'll probably be Darcy.

I prefer Rosella. It's pretty. Prof you're not convinced what about Rose Ella? And then she can be Rosie etc for short

It's lovely! It's unusual but it's not absurd, I think most people, myself included, wouldn't think it's too 'out there ' at all. Go for it!

Beautiful name, I love it!

Wow, really? I'm so happy it has gone down well! smilesmilesmile

I really REALLY like it!! And I am quite traditional. Although it very unusual, the nick names are all very mainstream. And lovely. Don't tell your mum until the baby is here, it will be easier for her to stomach wink

Would you pronounce it Rose-Ella or Roz-Ella? That's probably a silly question but I'm curious smile I like it, either way!

ApocalypseSlough Sun 24-Apr-16 22:01:58

It's lovely!!

JoyofSpring Sun 24-Apr-16 22:03:42

It's lovely! And because it is reminiscent of more usual names it doesn't sound at all out there or crazy.

I love it!

manicinsomniac Sun 24-Apr-16 22:05:26

I think it's really pretty. Go for it.

MalbecAndLindt Sun 24-Apr-16 22:05:55

I think it's lovely!

Wolfiefan Sun 24-Apr-16 22:09:00

Like it. (And I normally go "oh shit no!" On these threads!)
Pretty and original but not yoooooneeeq!!

Jemimapuddleduk Sun 24-Apr-16 22:09:20

It's lovely. I used to babysit a Rosella about 20 or more years ago! She will be nearly 30 now. I have never come across another one. It's a lovely name.

gingerboy1912 Sun 24-Apr-16 22:09:32

What a lovely name I wouldn't be afraid to use it.

MummySparkle Sun 24-Apr-16 22:11:28

I love it, and I'm not one for strange names. But it sounds like it could be a name, and I don't think people will have too many problems pronouncing it either - go for it!

PrincessJoJo123 Sun 24-Apr-16 22:11:35

Wow!!! I'm SO happy! Thank you all so much smile

We would pronounce it Rose-Ella smilesmilesmile

moodyblues Sun 24-Apr-16 22:11:48

Very nice, I think it's very pretty and I haven't heard it before! Go for it.

woody2976 Sun 24-Apr-16 22:14:03

lovely name. much nicer than Darcey.

PamDooveOrangeJoof Sun 24-Apr-16 22:14:27

I totally thought you were going to say Galah! Wah
Rosella is a lovely name. Go for it

PamDooveOrangeJoof Sun 24-Apr-16 22:15:21

And wow what an amazing looking bird! I think I may have seen them in oz

PrincessJoJo123 Sun 24-Apr-16 22:17:42


I know, the birds are gorgeous! Which definitely helps smile

I probably won't tell my mum, but I might, but if I'm at the stage of telling family, I won't care what they say as it will be her name! I'm near the end anyway, I just really want her to have a name for when she is here smile
