Classy, beautiful and intelligent sounding.

I adore this name! It sounds mature (perhaps a fitting name for an elderly British countess in a story?), but it can suit a small girl as well with nicknames like "Rosie", while sounding more refined than names such as "Rose". A more youthful, but equally beautiful option is the Shakespearean Rosalind.

I came across a possible variant, Rozmonda. I thought it intriguing and exotic, a perfect name for a heroine in literature or television.

Absolutely love this name. Rosamund is a rare beauty of a name. I'd probably use it as a middle name for Alice, personally :-)

Personally, I love this name! I don't find the -mund too masculine at all, but I think it's just gorgeous! It sounds medieval and mysterious and it attracts attention because it's uncommon. I'd pronounce it either "Rose-a-mund" or "Rhoz-a-mund", but probably "Rose-a-mund" because I like it more.

The Grimm's version of Sleeping Beauty sometimes gives this as the princess' name.

It took a while for me to like this name, because I thought it sounded too much like a surname and not personal enough for a first name. Now that doesn't bother me anymore, because there are plenty of great first names that end with "-mund", but I can't think of any surnames that do. Sure, all other first names that I can think of ending with "mund" are masculine, but I don't think that makes Rosamund sound any less feminine- I actually think it sort of accents it, and at the same time weighs down the first two syllables. A lot of popular girly names today either don't sound feminine at all, or only suit little girls. I think Rosamund is gorgeous and can suit any age well.
Besides for that, the meaning and history is lovely enough to stand on its own.

The 'mund' makes it sound too masculine.

I believe that the meaning of this name is still in dispute:

Along with the BTN meanings, Rosamund could mean "rosy mouth" denoting beauty; Rosamond could mean "rosy/pink moon" meaning "harvest moon" It's also said that it hints at the Latin phrase "Rosa Mundi" or "rose of the world".

"Rosamund" can be pronounced:

ROW-za-mond ("mond" as in Monday without the -ay)
or
RAH-za-mend (rhymes with "Rosalind")

The German version is of this name is "Rosamunde". It is pronounced "row-zah-MOON-deh".

I usually pronounce it Row-zuh-mund even though it can be pronounced in many ways. It really does have a feeling to it that makes in seem different.

Rosamunde is the name of a polka song in German. The tune is that of the English song "Roll Out the Barrel."

Even though I like Rosalie a lot more than this name, it has an aura about it that a lot of other names lack.

The name feels ugly and blunt to me.

I'm in love with pretty much any Rose name but I think Rosamund might even be more of my favourite than Rose or Rosemary. I think it's absolutely gorgeous either as a first name with nickname Rose/Rosie or as a middle name. I think I like it as a middle name for either Jane or Autumn. Jane Rosamund. Autumn Rosamund. Charlotte Rosamund? Evelyn Rosamund? Oh, how I love Rosamund!

Rosamund Clifford, the royal mistress, did not fit the "pure rose" definition, so by tinkering with the Latin, an alternative was found: Rosa mundi, the rose of the world - worldly, and also promiscuous: belonging to the whole world (of men).

Any modern Rosamund could equally well translate it differently again: the rose - the best and most beautiful thing - of the whole world (of precious objects).

I always thought the meaning was 'rose of the world', from Latin rosa (rose) and mundus (world). In Jane Eyre, the character Rosamund is described as "deserving of her name... 'rose of the world'".

Gorgeous and classy name. Leaves all the other Rose names in its wake.

My name is spelt Rosamunde, the 'e' is silent. I was named after the Opera by Schubert. Everyone comments on my name and no-one can pronounce it correctly. Should be pronounced 'Ros-a-munde' the a is soft. Usually people say Rosemunde with emphasis on the e's which is quite annoying.
