Which do you like best please? Or any other options?

Want to honour a late family member who went by Ro. A nickname, not her real name, which we don’t want to use.

Middle name Bethan.

Rose. People will call her Rosie etc anyway.

My friend Ro is a Rosanna. There's also Rowan, Rosina, Romilly, Veronica (maybe a bit of a stretch?).

I like Rose or Rosalie. I know a young Rosalind too.

Rose is classic elegant and gorgeous

I love all Rose names.
Rosanna and Rosalie are my favourites.

I love Rosalind or rosemary (I think both will be shorted to Rosie anyway)
Beautiful names.

I quite like Rowena? Might be a bit Harry Potter though.

Rose is classic, prefer Rosanna though I think.

My eldest has the middle name Rosalind. But whatever you choose it'll be special because you're honouring your friend 🙂

Thanks everyone.

I think I’m even more confused now!! So many lovely names to choose from.

I think most likely we will go for Rose which is DHs favourite. I honestly like them all evenly!

I love Rosemary, and you never hear it these days.

I like Roisin (pronounced Row-sheen), And I like Rosamund too.

Of those mentioned here I like Rose and Rosalind.

I know a Rosabella too.

Rose won't be shortened to Ro though which you want I think? If so Rowan, Rowena.
