Middle name for Rosa

So we have finally decided on Rosa (I think) but I am not sure about middle names now. I wanted the middle name to have some family meaning. Ideally, I would love it to be Julia, after my grandmother. But does 'Rosa Julia' sound ridiculous? (Surname ends in Y). If it does, my Mum's name is Josephine. But I fear that 'Rosa Josephine' is a bit of a mouthful too.

If both of these are out - any suggestions?

(The other name we're considering is Elsa, but not sure that this makes a difference where the middle names are concerned?)

Oh I think Rosa is a beautiful name and Rosa Julia after your grandmother is also lovely.

Rosa Molly? (That's what I'm pondering for a girl anyway!)

depends what your surname is, but I think Rosa Josephine works ok.... Rosa Julia doesn't.

Rosa is a gorgeous name

Rosa Louise is BEAUTIFUL.
Or Rosa Juliet would keep a part of your Grandmother's name, if that's possible!

Actually, I think Rosa Julia is fine ... just not that keen on Jula ........ blush

Does Rosa Alice work, or is there too much 'a' action going on?

Rosa Josephine is easier to say than Rosa Alice. Rosa Julia also fine (looks Spanish on paper) but how about Rosa Juliet? Just call it a twist on Grandmother's name.

Rosa is beautiful but I think Rosa Juliet is better than Julia or Josephine for rolling nicely off the tongue -would still honour you grandmother in principle.

My great grandmother was Rosa Mary which I think is beautiful; sadly I did not know it when I had my dd otherwise I would have used it.

Rosa Julia is lovely. I'd stick to the family link.

Rosa Daphne in greek kinda way, love it!

Juliet instead of Julia?

How about Helen? Turns out my great grandmother was called Helen...

Rosa is lovely. I would go for Julia. My DD has a first and middle name ending in the same sound for the same reason (a name we love plus a family name).

Rosa Helen also lovely.
