I understand that Rose is very commonly used as a middle name nowadays, but what do you think of it as a first name? She will be a twin, almost definitely to be named Clara Juliette. DH is French and it has a very sentimental meaning for us, as in DH's wedding vows he included a quote from "The Little Prince" which in English reads as "It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose important."

Paternal half-sisters (my step-daughters) are Cassandra Geneviève, Madeleine Emma and Amélie Séraphine, full sister is Lucie Aurélie.

Is it too old fashioned/too popular? Does it go well with her other sisters' names, and her potential twin Clara Juliette? And what do you think of the name Félicité as a middle name?

Rose Félicité and Clara Juliette... I think I like it, but I'm not sure!

Also, don't worry if you think Rose Félicité or any of the other names are too French, as they have a very French surname and a very English name could look a bit silly.

Very grateful for opinions!

I love Rose as a first name. It's classic and simple and makes people think of a beautiful flower whenever they say the name.

Lovely! As is Clara Juliette. Beautiful names.

I like Rose. I've also got a friend called Rosa which I think is lovely.

I like it. We have a Rosie.

Rickstone Fri 22-Jul-16 21:55:06

I prefer Rosie, but that's just because that's more of my style. I think it sounds/goes lovely!

Rose Felicite is lovely, and works very well with all her sister's names

Without outing myself completely,2 of my children have dr who names, Clara would be a good one if I ever had another baby girl. grin

jellycat1 Fri 22-Jul-16 22:09:34

Love all four names. Well chosen!

I ADORE Rose as a first name.

squoosh Fri 22-Jul-16 22:19:21

I love it. And there really aren't that many of them. Which is weird seeing how many girls have it as a middle name.

Rose and Clara sound great together.

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Fri 22-Jul-16 22:30:50

Gorgeous! Love both first names and both middle names.

Rose and Clara are lovely but does make me think of Dr. Who.

Rose Félicité is gorgeous, as is Clara Juliette and the names the other sisters have are really elegant and flow so beautifully as well.

FWIW I think they go very well together - each of my girls has at least one of those names mentioned so I'm a bit biased.

It's lovely, the sisters names are all really fab too
