I like it but it's a bit too short. I also wouldn't give my daughter a name that is also used as a word. I would love to name my first daughter Rosa and then I'll use Roos as a short form.

In the Netherlands, Roos actually originally came into being as a short form of Rosa, and it is still used as such. Of course, the connection with the Dutch word for 'rose' (which is "roos") is clear, and sometimes parents use it because of that. But Roos as a short form of Rosa is how it all started.

Further, this name is also used in Limburgish. The Limburgish pronunciation is the same as the Dutch pronunciation.
