I kid you not, I legitimately thought that this was a masculine name the first time I heard it, and I'm still kinda pissed that it isn't. I mean, it would be really cool if there were more flower names for guys, but I guess that flowers are considered to be feminine. Anyways, I wouldn't recommend this name for someone's daughter- Rosa or just Rose would be good alternatives.

Rosamond… it sounds like a mystery name. I think I like it. It's beautiful and elegant and refined. I never heard it until five minutes ago… but I like it. Rosamond, Rosamond….

Romy would work as a nickname for this gorgeous name.

Rosamond Clifford, known to history as 'Fair Rosamond', was famed for her beauty and as the mistress of Henry II of England. Some accounts have her murdered by Eleanor of Aquitaine, Henry's vengeful Queen, but she joined a nunnery after the affair and was buried at Godstow Abbey near Oxford.
The spelling is sometimes confused due to the use of Latin at the time – Rosamundi – but in English her name should carry the 'o'.
Daniel's Renaissance poem 'The Complaint of Rosamond' is inspired by her legend.

This is my daughter's middle name. It's a family name I loved, but lately I've been unsure about it. It's slowly growing on me again.

I have no idea why I love this name so much - I just do. Although I think I'd prefer to pronounce this name as 'ROSE-ah-mund' and not 'ROZ-ah-mund'.
