Hi, trying to name DC4 after boys- so basically she has a jumble of names we didn't use the last 3 times..!

As a middle name I would like something Rose-like:- my sister is Rose, other sis has Rosalind middle name, mum has Rosamund middle name.... as we live in the East Asia I tried to go for Rose in Chinese but it is a bit hmm

Any ideas?

And also- too flowery next to Iris as a middle name?!

So many names in our list I can't narrow it down, she'll have about 20 at this rate!

I think Rosa is nice and a nod towards your sister and mum. I prefer it to Rose.

Iris Rosa is OK but Iris would probably go better with one of the longer alternatives suggested by PP above.

Rosa is gorgeous, but not sure it goes with Iris.

We have a Rosemary nn 'Rose' or 'Rosie' - when we were deciding her name we chose between:

Rosa, Rosamund, Rosalie and Rosemary.

Rosamund means rose of the world, I love it.
Roisin is pretty too.

Doesn't Susanne mean Rose as well?

Rosabel

Or Roslyn

Rosita would be "little rose" in English so possibly quite apt?

ClaryIsTheBest Tue 10-Jan-17 21:37:29

Roslyn remind me of Roslin castle. One of the few pieces I have still memorised and could play on the violin without needing sheet music.

I'd go for Roslyn or Rosalie.

And yes, feel free to judge my Violine skills. It's... whatever. Quite bad.

Anyhow. Ya. Bye. That's awkward. I have to think about name changing blush

Susanne/Susannah is lily not rose

ClaryIsTheBest Wed 11-Jan-17 01:17:12

I really thought it meant Rose in modern Hebrew. Interesting.

Are you certain? blush

Pemba Wed 11-Jan-17 03:20:49

Susannah/Susan/Suzanne is lily, yes. Well that's what I've always heard from many different name dictionaries going back decades.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 11-Jan-17 13:03:43

Rosetta.

ClaryIsTheBest Wed 11-Jan-17 13:13:19

I just googled it. It was apparently meant to be Lily but in modern Hebrew it means Rose? I'm not sure why...
