I think Rosa sounds a little harsh compared to the lovely Rose. I have a good friend who's an extremely masculine basketball player with the surname "Rosa", so I always I'll think basketball players when I hear it.

Rosa is my all-time favourite name, I much prefer it to Rose or Rosie, I think they sound too common. Rosa isn't as gentle as Rose/Rosie I know, but it sounds more confident, just that little "a" on the end. It's so pretty, I wish I was called Rosa!

I absolutely love this name! It sounds longer than Roos (Dutch for Rose) but still enough like it. One of my best friends in primary school bore this name and that's were I got it from. She's the only Rosa I've met and certainley gave me a good impression of the name. If I ever have a daughter this will be her name.

I love this name. It's not too popular to be stereotypical of this age and not too old-fashioned to be out of the question; like naming someone Edna. Simple, sweet. Perfect.
