"Rosa" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) - the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday).

The Latin word comes from the Greek "rodon" meaning "a flow of scent".

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.

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.

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!

Rosa seems as if it should be pronounced Ro-sah not Ro-zah.

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.

Pretty name. And there's Rosa Luxemburg.
