a wild rose, gorgeous in theory. Pretty, outlandish or just plain eggy?

It sounds like an ingredient. Awful sorry.

Terrible...and i like unusual names!

Reminds me of posh French soap that we used to sell, I guess it was rose soap.

Not a good idea for a name, sorry.

Bedknobs and Broomsticks song: 'Eglantine Eglantine, oh how you shine!'

Love the film, but wouldn't use the name I'm afraid.

not good then....

Sounds awfully like the airport at Londonderry - would that bother you?

There are lots of rose varieties that would sound nicer as names, tbh. If you are particularly fond of roses that is.

Tidey, that was my first thought on seeing the thread title grin

Sorry, but not a name I like.

Would not be my choice

I can see there'll always be problems with pronunciation - rhyme with teen or shine??
