I love Rose and love Belle, but I must say I think Rosabelle sounds a bit made up.

And she'll have to explain it to everyone she ever encounters for the rest of time

Rosa is nice though and so is Bella (although not keen on just Belle)

I like it, both nicknames are lovely.

Love Rosabelle, prefer Rosabel, not as frilly.

MaisyPops Sat 25-Mar-17 20:37:30

It sounds made up to me. Pretty but made up.

There's a Rosabell Laurenti Sellers who is in Game of Thrones and Mia and Me on Netflix.
I like it, think it's pretty.

I'm not keen.

I know it's a 'proper' / traditional name, but the combination of the floral sound at the start and the belle at the end somehow makes me find it a little OTT and Disney-ish.

I've seen it discussed on here before and loads of people think it sounds made up. I imagine people might think the same thing IRL, so you could end up explaining it all the time which could be a bit irksome.

It's a bit fussy & frilly.

Rosabel is much nicer.

SookiesSocks Sat 25-Mar-17 21:03:32

Sorry sounds like a forgotten Disney princess.
Unless that is what you wanted then go for it grin

My DD is Rosabel, so yes, I like it. ;) She goes by Rosie most of the time.

It is on the frillier side, and the Victorians did seem to make it up, but hey ho. I don't think those are the worst things in the world.

Sophronia Sat 25-Mar-17 21:27:48

I think it's nicer spelled Rosabel

Rockaby Sat 25-Mar-17 21:28:57

YY Rosabel is definitely a nicer spelling imo.

frums Sat 25-Mar-17 21:31:28

It's a bit too OTT girlie, frilly for me but that's just a matter of individual taste.

HoratioNightboy Sat 25-Mar-17 22:01:08

I've always had a liking for this name, and I don't generally go for Rose-type names at all. It's definitely older than Victorian though - back to 1652 at least.

namechange20050 Sat 25-Mar-17 22:04:00

I know a rosabella and I think it's a lovely name.

HeddaGarbled Sat 25-Mar-17 22:08:01

I'm not keen TBH: a bit overly twee & girly. Imagine her as an adult professional having to introduce herself to new clients or fellow professionals. She'll have to fight extra hard to be taken seriously.

Ojoj1974 Sat 25-Mar-17 22:10:09

It's a big no from me I'm afraid. It conjures up Disney, gypsy and OTT. Sorry blush

msgrinch Sat 25-Mar-17 22:12:41

Awful. Just awful but that's just my taste. Sounds made up, cheap perfume name, tacky and frilly.

NoCapes Sat 25-Mar-17 22:17:05

I think it sounds like a pub
"Meet you in the Rosabelle at 8 pal, mines a cider"

Ohyesiam Sat 25-Mar-17 22:20:18

It's very frilly, but for the right little girl it would work. Ringlets ( possibly ginger), and a rosebud mouth spring to mind.

MitzyLeFrouf Sat 25-Mar-17 23:13:48

I agree with Ohyesiam. I can picture this name on a young Bonnie Langford type, frilly frock, tap dancing legs and ringlets flying.

It's a bit much for me.

ToffeeForEveryone Sat 25-Mar-17 23:23:52

Prefer Rosabel to Rosabelle

But yes, it's pretty but not the most serious adult name.

Rednailsandnaeknickers Sat 25-Mar-17 23:50:50

Sounds like the type of twee name given to a doll or brand of glittery tat.

Rosa on its own is a lovely name tho. Give her Belle as a seperate middle name so you can run them together if you want but she's not mortified as a teenager/adult by her cabbage patch name?

MitzyLeFrouf Sat 25-Mar-17 23:55:43

'Cabbage patch name'


Maybe cabbage patch and care bear names will be the next big thing. Goodbye Florence and Hugo, hello Hug a Lot and Trixiebelle
