So as a member of the Rosario clan I just wanted to add that when I was younger I struggled with my last name and did not appreciate it until I was married. After reading the meaning behind what it meant I am grateful and also think I got triple doozied with names that mean Angel of God, a variation of Mary mother of Christ and then a derivative of the Lord’s rosary, rosarium or roses. This was fun and educational. Thanks everyone for your comments I know My family will appreciate them no matter what.

Because it is tied to the Virgin Mary, it seems like more of a girl's name. Plus there are girl names that end in o like Rio, Keiko, Kumiko, etc.

I prefer this either as a last name or as a boy's name.

I prefer this on a boy but if you happen to be named Rosario and you're a girl maybe you should just go by Rose? If you're a guy SERIOUSLY AVOID BEING CALLED ROSIE OR ROSE! But Rio is a nice nickname.

The name Rosario was given to 94 baby girls born in the US in 2012. It definitely sounds more masculine to me.

A marvelous, marvelous name, in my opinion. It contains very masculine aspects, yet does not overdo it without possessing slight tender sensations. "Rosario" is a pleasurable, nice name to-the-ear and written.

However, it is an extremely ethnic name, which would (should) require only people of Italian or Spanish/Hispanic decent. What was just said equally stands for names of Russian origin, of German, Greek, Indian, among countless others.
A perfectly professional, educated name, granted you hold a surname to pair accordingly-- Rosario Giovannelli / Rosario Lopez, as an example.

Italian pronunciation of "Rosario":

Roh-ZAH-Ree-Oh

Roll your "R." An "S" placed between two vowels creates a "Z" sound. "A" as found in "Father." Once again, roll your "R." Be sure to stress your "I" in "Rio" to "EE." End with a well-circled "Oh." [noted -ed]

I didn't even know this was a feminine name before I clicked on it. I LOVE the name on a boy however. I know a Rosario who is hilarious. Always cracking everyone up. I used to not like the name on a boy so much but I think he helped to change my impression of it. Now I really like it.

Italian pronunciation:

Rho-Zahr-EE-Oh

Roll your "R"s. "O" as in "I need to Mow my grass." An "S" sandwiched on either end by a vowel creates a "Z". "A" spoken as in "Father". Stress the "I" in "Rio" to an "EE".

Rosario is derived from the Latin "Rosarium", which in turn takes the meaning, "Rosary; Crown; Garland Of Roses".

I really like the name Rosario but I would not use it because I am not Catholic. While Rosario as a name makes me think of Rosario Dawson, I very much like the name on a boy. A name like Rosario Alejandro flows very well in my opinion. My cousin's sister-in-law recently had twin boys that she named Rosario and Cruz (rosary and cross in English) which I think is just terrific. I would assume someone named Rosario to be Catholic (or at least from a Catholic family) and possibly Hispanic or Spanish.

I think I prefer this name on a girl. It sounds more feminine than masculine, despite the fact that it ends in O.
