Numerous etymological works point out the German use of Rose as a form of Mary. In fact, that is often given as the origin. Also, the Catholic Church seems to accept it as a thusly valid "Christian name" for this reason.

This is my middle name, and is thoroughly overused as one, but goes well with just about any name. I don't think I've ever been the only one in my class who has this middle name! I think it sounds especially sweet with Emma or Ella (or my name, Lauren!)

Rose is my middle name and many of my peers think that it is better than my first name. I don't think that. My teacher says that she wants Rose as the middle name of her first girl. It does roll off the tounge. It is also the name of Betty White's character on the old TV show "The Golden Girls".

I think it's pretty, and it would've been my name if I had red hair (thankfully not -- the name hardly suits me), but I think that this best belongs to the flower. It just doesn't sound all that appealing to me.

I just started really liking this name today. It's a nice twist because everyone has it as their middle name (along with Marie, Grace, etc.) and for a girl to have it as a first name is nice. Plus, Titanic's not a bad movie. ;]

I love this name. If my last name didn't start with an "s" I'd use it. As it is I'm thinking of using Rosalie. I seriously doubt the Greek connection, though I love horses so it wouldn't bother me.

This is my favourite name. I think it has an elegant air to it and so would be good for anyone, no matter what your age. Though the pet form is Rosie, I would associate this more with a little girl or a dog. Overall, I think this is a nice name (even if it's thought to be a little over-used)!

This name sounds simple and sweet to me, but I speak French and I would never name my child this because rose means pink in French, and I would never name my daughter pink.

Famous bearer includes famous author Rose Wilder Lane, daughter (and only surviving child) of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her husband Almanzo Wilder.

Rose's character was in the later of the 'Little House' books, portrayed by multiple actresses (only much later in the series around the time it became "Little House on the Prairie: A New Beginning") in the famous '70's-'80's television series, and also in many miniseries and movies based off of the life of the Ingalls Family.

Rose Wilder Lane was born in December 1886 and died in 1968, at the age of 81.
Sarah Elizabeth  10/31/2007
This is a very nice name! I didn't used to like it very much but now I do. Lots of people in Brazil are called Rose, but you pronounce it HO-zee. Rosa is used a lot too, since it is Portuguese for the flower rose. It's pronounced Ho-za. I prefer just Rose as a first name only, I don't really like the combinations like Rosemary or Roseann or Gracie-Rose or something like that.

Mel_13  4/5/2008
I love Rose as a first name, as it can be quite sweet and romantic. As a middle name though, all the originality is drained away. I feel as though half the girls in America have either Anne, Rose, Grace or Marie as a middle name. To me the middle name Rose seems like the parents gave no thought at all to it and just tacked it on because they felt she needed a middle name but couldn't be bothered to think of anything interesting.

But as a first name it is gorgeous and refreshing. I'd much rather meet a girl with the first name Rose then yet another girl who is _____ Rose.
ZoeAliza  4/7/2008
Roses are nice, and the name isn't exactly ugly, but it sounds quite plain and dull on its own, and it is way too common as a middle name. The name also reminds me of Rose McGowan, who was wacky enough to almost marry Marilyn Manson. Not a good association. However, the name does make me think of attractive women with reddish-brown, long hair, dewy, green eyes, full, red lips, pale skin, and an hourglass figure. This isn't much of a blonde name to me.
slight night shiver  5/4/2008
Sweet and rich and glowing with life.
EmilyOlive  5/4/2008
My middle name is Rose, and I used to think it was very harsh. Some girls had Lynn as a middle name, which I thought was simple and could be paired with anything. Others had Marie, which I thought was very pretty but also very common. Still others had Jane, which to this day I think is gorgeous. And I had a harsh one-syllable middle name: Rose. It's a family name.

Now that I'm a little older (16), I have grown to appreciate my middle name, as well as the flower behind it. I think that is beautiful.
erb816  5/21/2008
I LOVE this name, so simple, classic and elegant.
IrishRose45  5/21/2008
A very pretty feminine name. It makes a great middle name too. I obviously think so because I chose this as my Catholic Confirmation Name, so if included with my name, makes it sound more feminine, if it wasn't already. The rest of my names are complex and unusual, so it works well.

One of my great-grandmothers was named Rose. I think it is a really beautiful name. I always think of her when I hear it. Unfortunately, it's gotten popular as a middle name, like Anne, Marie, Lynn, and Leigh. I like this name way better as a first name.
bananarama  7/12/2008
My middle name is Rose, and I don't care if it's common. For a first name, I find it a bit old-fashioned, but still pretty. I just think it's better as a nickname for something like Rosalind, Rosanne, Rosette, etc. But hey, that's just me. I also like the flower; it's pretty.
Xx_Malaika_xX  9/10/2008
Rose is graceul, beautiful, dark, mysterious, yet strong and independent. And the name's history is so interesting. The German language is usually rough and unattractive, no offense to those who are German/of the heritage! I am primarily of German heritage.

The name has to either be a middle-name or it has to be a name combo to get by, otherwise, just Rose by itself is prententious.
_0TophasNails_1  11/23/2008
Rose is a lovely name. I can picture the name Rose on a baby, little girl, teenager, young woman, middle aged woman, and old woman. I think Rose can work for all ethnic backgrounds as well.

I love my name now (my name is Rose), but I used to hate it. The one thing I used to hate is when people would buzz the s (as in pronouncing it Ro-zh, aaah!). Since my dad has the same name as just about everyone in his generation and nobody can pronounce my mom's name right, they wanted to name me something that everyone could pronounce but not everyone would have. I haven't found many people with my name as a first name which is awesome (I have 6 friends named different variants of Erin and it's horribly confusing). People always come up to me and tell me they love my name, which is also awesome. I was so excited it might have been partially derived from German as well - I love the German language!

I absolutely LOVE the name Rose! It's so pretty and elegant, and it's feminine without being too girly. I think it is great as a first name, and I wish it were my name. There are many variations (Rosa, Rosalind, Rosemary, etc), but the only one I like is the French one Rosalie.
purple princess  2/19/2009
Rose is such a beautiful name! It gives an impression of sweetness but strength, like a rosebush has tough branches and thorns to protect itself. It's hard to pair with a middle name, but breaking up popular variations can have success, i.e. Rosemary, Roseanne, and Rosalyn become Rose Mary, Rose Anne, and Rose Lynne.
britto08  2/21/2009
As I do love my middle name, it is slightly overused. I'd use it as a first name! It's very pretty and not many people have it as a first name.

Like Claire, this name is really pretty and sweet in its simplicity, and who doesn't like roses? It's also very refreshing to see it used as a first name, since, for the last decade or so, it's been majorly overused as a middle name, the Marie and Anne of its generation.

I'm happily surprised that this name hasn't surged in popularity in recent years as the girls who saw that hideous Titanic movie over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again have grown up and started having kids of their own. Madison didn't get so hideously popular as a girl's name till a generation after 'Splash!,' and Jennifer stayed so popular well into the Eighties in part because the younger girls who had seen 'Love Story' apparently remembered that movie and wanted to use the name all of those years.

Rose is super cute! I also love Titanic. I'm using this name in a story I'm gonna write. I don't like it as a middle name though.

I love this name but if I used it on a child it would be a middle name which I know is a 'typical filler' but it's too dated for me to be a first name. I disagree that it's that you haven't given the middle name enough thought because it is beautifully irresistible, I can see why so many people use it.

I know that lots of people consider Rose to be a "filler" middle name, but I would use Rose as a middle name not because I couldn't think of anything better but because I happen to honestly love the name.

Napoleon disliked this name. His first wife, known to history as Joséphine de Beauharnais (1763–1814), was called Rose until she met him at the age of 32. He renamed her Joséphine from Josèphe, her second name (she was born Marie Josèphe Rose).
SeaHorse15  5/24/2011
"Rose" is (as overrated as it may be) a sweet name, nothing more, nothing less. I must admit that I associate it with women who have lived their lives (meaning: geriatric). It is not an incredibly professional firstname, either. "Rose" is leaps and bounds nicer than "Lily" (I beg of you not to name your daughters that trendy/fad combination).

"Rosie" is a decently tolerable diminutive.
Francesca  5/29/2011
I wish this was my name instead of Serena! It's so elegant and classy and I love the diminutive Rosie. Like everyone else says, it's extremely overused as a middle name, so I would be much more likely to use it as a first name. Gorgeous name!

This is my first name, and I have to say I find it incredibly awful. First of all, I believe that no matter how pretty the flower, the name of a plant does NOT belong on a person. It also does not suit my personality, because I'm rather wild and loud and it comes across as extremely dainty.

I also absolutely hate the nickname Rosie, because it's childish.

I admittedly narcissistically looked up my own first name. I really do like it a lot. I do occasionally get the "Oh! Your name's Rose? My middle name's Rose!" That does not bother me. My impression of it really is of an old Jewish woman, but that's because I was named after my great grandmother. Nobody likes their name as a child, and for me, I thought it was too feminine to suit me. It is a very feminine name, with little to no gender ambiguity. That being said, it's stopped bothering me. I think the name induces respect and implies intelligence. The fact that it is monosyllabic makes it efficient to say and write. The usual nicknames lengthen it, which I find counterintuitive and discourage the use of. The most common adjective used to describe it is "beautiful," which does not suit me, but I think the name does suit me in its own way. The age of the name doesn't make me feel stuffy, but worldly instead.

As someone who's had this name for 16 years, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone considering it for their daughter. What if they grow up to hate their floral namesake, as I do? I hate that there are no decent nickname options aside from "Rosie", which is likely to be outgrown by a certain age.

Grace_Scarlette  7/28/2012
I like the name Rose but after Titanic people always think about Rose Dawson from Titanic so it's kinda depressing. And people always use it as a name filler when it comes to middle names there is a lot with the middle name Rose.
555jazzy  8/3/2012
Rose is beautiful.. I also love Rosa, Rosemary, Rosalie, Rosaline, Rosette... it's pretty both as a first and middle name! ;) In reply to Merilwen, a child could grow up to 'hate' ANY name you could ever give them. You don't know. So if you really dislike your name that much, then introduce yourself as something different. (I did this for a while, as I was ashamed for being named Galadriel, after the elf in Lord of the Rings.) And besides, why would you dislike such a beautiful and classy name? ^.^

MissRose  2/25/2013
This is my middle name, and I hate it. I turned out to be the rare sort of person who is disgusted by flowers completely and hates them with a passion, and honestly I'd rather not have any kind of middle name at all than be named for a flower, so you really need to think things through before naming a little girl after an object such as a plant or gemstone, even if it's regarded as an object of beauty. What if she turns out to hate flowers, like me? What if she's allergic to roses? Even if it sounds unlikely, it can happen. Even if you doubt it would happen, I'd advise you to really think things through anyway, even if you think that your daughter won't mind being named after a flower, or that she will like them. It seemed unlikely that I would mind being named after a flowering plant when my mother picked this name for me. But that's just what happened. I understand that parents risk choosing a name that their child will come to hate every time they give a name to their newborn baby, but my advice is to simply really, really think things through before naming a baby after a physical object, even if it's an object that people usually find lovely.

This is my name, and I feel very lucky to have it. It is a very romantic and beautiful name that not many have for their first name, though it is overused for a middle. I am called Rosie by family and friends. Some characters with the name I like are Rose Weasley from Harry Potter, Rosie Cotton from Lord of the Rings, and Rose Brier from the Fairy Tale Novels by Regina Doman. I love roses too, especially red ones.

I love this name! It's short but beautiful, classy, elegant, and timeless all at once. Rosie is cute, but I prefer Rose. It's sad how uncommon this name has gotten, as it was so popular once, and it seems like a lot of people like it. As a middle name it's a little overused, but I think it would be adorable as a first name on a little girl and would age very well. This is one of my favorite names, and I like a lot of similar sounding names like Rosalie, Roslyn, and Rosemarie, too, which you could use as full names if you feel Rose is too short. All of them are beautiful =)

I've never liked this name. It sounds too 'old lady'.
Almonds  7/28/2013
I named one of my triplets Rose back in 2010. I absolutely adore this name, and I like that it's not very common for girls her age. She definitely stands out from the crowd of Emma's, Isabella's, and Sophia's. I do not think this name is 'old ladyish' at all, and if you think it sounds too grown up, you can always call her Rosie, which is very cute :-) I'm a big fan of vintage names that are in need of revival, and everyone who meets my daughter loves her name. It's simple but so elegant and timeless, and that's what I love about it. It doesn't have to be a frilly, four syllable name to be girly and romantic. Rose has a sort of humble beauty to it, in my opinion. Though I agree that it is well beyond overused as a middle name. I've had too many mothers tell me that Rose is their daughter's middle name. I think it's time for overused middle names like Rose, Marie, and Anne to make a comeback as first names, they're all absolutely beautiful and so unfortunately underused at the moment!

Roses are my absolute FAVOURITE flowers! :D It's girly, sweet and pretty at the same time. ^^ I would use it as a first name if I had a daughter in the future because it's a totally overused middle name. I don't care if it seems old-fashioned. At least Rose isn't trendy sounding like Ariana, Bailey, Mackenzie etc.

Update to my previous comment: Now I'm thinking about using this as a middle name. I don't care about it being an "overused middle name" anymore as I don't let popularity waver me from using names I love. ^_^

My name is Rose. I've always loved it. It's so unique as a first name I've only meet a few people with the same first name. Personally I do feel that it is over used as a middle name because you can find probably half a million people with the middle name, but so few with it as a first name. I think it should definitely make a comeback as a first name because it represents something beautiful and sweet. Plus I love the flowers, oddly though, they're not my favorite.

I usually love flower names, but simply can't stand Rose! It reminds me of an old, fat lady. And I hated the whimpy Rose in Titanic. Sorry to all Roses out there, it's nothing personal!

While it seems a bit dated and not-exciting, it is still the most popular flower. Only problem though is that roses have thorns.. hmm.

It's pretty, but horribly, horribly bland. I can see why it's such a common middle name; since it has no personality of its own, it blends well with just about any other name.

Rose is a beautiful name and it is simple, yet classy and it works great for a middle name as well.
Tatumgirl23  3/8/2015
Simple, short, sweet and pretty. Personally, I think it could compliment any first/second name nicely.

I don't know why, but Rose always makes a good middle name.
Luvbug86  11/12/2015
My name actually is Rose, I think it is a hood name to have. Anyone who knows me or even anyone I just met, they always say that is such a beautiful name to have. I have also never known a single person yet in my life with the first name Rose. For a first name it's unique because it's uncommon. Having a unique and different name is just amazing and makes you feel special because you're not like every other person in the world who had the same name as you. You have a special name which no one else has, no one can ever mix you up and it's an easy name to say and to remember. I love my name and I say anyone who doesn't know what to name your baby girl and you want a name that is unique and uncommon, pick Rose.

My first name is Rose and middle is Margaret such a cool name to have. Its an older name but I love my name and I'm only 17 yrs old.

This name is way too common as a middle name. It's basically the modern Marie, Ann, or Lynn. If I ever meet someone 17 or younger, it's pretty safe to guess that their middle name is either Rose, Elizabeth, or Grace. I think it works well as a first name or paired with a second middle name, but on its own and in the middle, it's simply a bland filler name that can essentially work with any first name.

Predictable for a middle name, boring for a first name.

I think it's beautiful, but it's so boring and bland as both a middle and first name I'm tired of hearing it. Rosaline, Rosalie, Rosamund, Rosalind, Rosalba, etc would be a much better, more original alternative to just plain Rose, both as a first and middle name. To my surprise, I met a guy who went by Rose once. It was his last name, but he preferred it to his first name. And I liked it; I thought it sounded surprisingly great on a male. He'd probably get teased endlessly, but as a nickname for something like Rosario or Rosaire I still like it.

Rose is nice but I like the longer names with Rose in it. So these are the ones I know:
So yeah, it's a nice name but I like the longer versions.

My name is Mikayla-Rose so it's kinda my first name. In my family we have this tradition that every 11 years a girl's middle name or first is Rose. So my mum's middle name is Rose and my aunties and cousin etc...
And I don't think its 'dull' I don't think any name can be 'dull' or 'boring' when you meet the person then you can decide if they are 'boring' or 'dull'.

I have a personal connection to roses, as in the flower, and this is another name that I would love to give to a future child (but of course I will be single forever so I will not have one). It is simple, distinguished, and elegant, evocative of the flower that has been such a source of both symbolic and true aesthetic beauty in my life, and a reminder of the one that got away. I think it also goes quite well with a longer middle name such as Elizabeth. Anyway... I just absolutely love Rose.
bethanyisabelle92  8/21/2016
I really can't think of a middle name that flows well with Rose, which is why I think it's mostly used as a middle name.
Luvbug86  10/4/2016
I absolutely love the name Rose. I'd like to name a daughter Rose. I think Rose is so beautiful on its own. It annoys me how often Rose is tacked behind a first name because it's so common that way which kind of makes it less pretty. One of my best friends is named Rosie (not Rose, just Rosie) and roses are my favorite flowers. I just think it's so pretty!
dancingbear  1/2/2017
Rose is my favorite flower name. It's delicate, but not overly delicate. The initial "R" gives the name a touch of strength. The nickname "Rosie" is lovely. Why the hell do people just put Rose as the middle name? Rose as a first name is classic and refreshing at the same time.
flaviacardozodejesus  2/25/2017
The name lost its life for me when I found out that everybody and their sister, cousin, and friend have this name as a middle name. I just don't like it anymore simply because it is overused. It's like listening to a song on the radio over and over and over again. Eventually it just doesn't have that magic to it anymore.

Rose is an amazing name and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It's a beautiful and elegant, and NEVER goes out of style. If you are thinking of naming a baby girl, you should consider it.

Rose is a great middle name.

I absolutely hate this name! It is the ugliest name I have ever heard. It is so tacky and boring. Also I think it is okayish for a kid (but still pretty ugly), but for an adult... Bleeeeeeh. I would hate being an adult named Rose! It would be so boring and childish! I feel so very sorry for anyone who is named Rose, has a close friend named Rose, or even has to hear this awful name on a daily basis.

Pretty, but doesn't stand out much.

So my name is Rose, and growing up I didn't like it because I didn't have a flouncy name like girls in my class (Eg: Arabella and Jasmina)
But as I got a little older I realised it is not only elegant but also really feminine. I think it is overused as a middle name and fresh as a first name. Saying that, it is still pretty as a middle name if you (weird, I know) have two middle names. (Eg: Catherine Ella Rose.)
Anyway, it's super pretty and kind of fun, and not old-ladyish at all. Many think it is dull, but whatever.

So my middle name is Rose and I’ve always been inspired by it. To me pink, red, white and purple are Rose like colors.

Lovely name.
Hushpuppy  2/27/2018
This name is so cute, and I love the nickname Rosie. I do prefer it as a first name or perhaps a nickname for Rosemary or Rosalie though, as it is very common as a middle name.
