I really like this name but im not sure if it sounds too much like a mouthful when shouting it?

Not at all. Lovely name. Elegant and feminine. Plenty of shortenings too. Go for it.

I love this name and think it flows really nicely, not a mouthful at all. I like rosalind too.

It's a lovely name and you could use Rosie as a 'calling name' if need be.

I really like it and i like all the shortenings you could use like Rose, Rosie, Anna etc

How would you pronounce it as there seems to be two ways to pronounce it. Ro-Sanna or Rose-anna?

I can't really hear a difference. confused

I quite like it, actually. smile I like all of the nicknames (particularly Rosie!)

Rose-Anna is how I would pronounce it.

I know an adult Rosanna. I think it's beautiful. She gets called Rosie a lot. Go for it!

Lovely name.

It's lovely.

Like it, but a bit frilly. Prefer Roseanne.

Roseanna was my nana's name. She died last week :-(. She was shortened to Rose or Rosie oftentimes. It's a beautiful and elegant name.

BendydickCuminsnatch Tue 05-Jul-16 07:09:33

I know a Rosemara if you're looking at other options!

Rather than Ro-Sanna, I would wonder whether it's Rose-Anna or Roz-Anna.

Lovely name smile

I prefer the 'Roseanna' spelling, but it's a lovely name!

Sophronia Tue 05-Jul-16 18:11:41

Rosanna is lovely

I would pronounce that spelling Rozanna. I think it needs the e to make it softer.

It's a lovely name.

DramaAlpaca Tue 05-Jul-16 21:10:42

Rosanna is a gorgeous name.

MeLittleDuckie Tue 05-Jul-16 21:19:50

I like it. I also love Rosa.

MrsGsnow18 Tue 05-Jul-16 23:16:46

I like the sound of Rosanna, like both spellings but love Rosa as a NN so prefer OPs spelling.

I love it, I also know an adult Rosanna (Ro-sanna) who is just so kind and quietly funny!

My Rosanna is 5 and I love her name, definitely isn't too much of a mouthful. We pronounce it Ro-sanna but the syllables have equal weight and run together. She is also frequently called Rosie which she likes. Her middle name is Eve- I think they flow well together.

We have met one other little Rosanna who had the nickname Ro-ro, apart from that I've only come across it in books so still very uncommon even though it is made up of two very common elements.

I was thinking of Rosanna Holly and then our surname.

I do love the name Eve. I think its great as a first name too
