My Mum's name is Rosemary. I quite like it. It sounds very elegant and sophisticated. Mostly it gets shortened to Ro though!

It is Rowan's actual name in Rowan Hood.

Such a pretty, classic name.

"Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)" was a popular song by by bubblegum pop "group" Edison Lighthouse (really session vocalist Tony Burrows, who also recorded under the names White Plains, the Pipkins, and the Brotherhood of Man). It reached number 5 on the US charts and number one in the UK in 1970.

Other songs that include the name Rosemary include "Rosemary" by The Grateful Dead and "Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts" by Bob Dylan.

The meaning is very beautiful. I like this name!

Anyone who read the novel Gone With the Wind (as opposed to seeing the film) might remember that Rosemary was the name of Rhett Butler's sister.

I'm amazed that nobody has mentioned Rosemary Clooney (1928-2002)! The famed singer and actress played a leading role in White Christmas (1954) and was the aunt of actor George Clooney.

But it's a plant.

In the book the Giver Rosemary was the name of a twelve year old girl who killed herself.

It is an absolutely beautiful name!

The female lead in the musical "How to succeed in Business without really Trying" is named Rosemary. There is a love song in the show that revolves around her name. "Suddenly there is music at the sound of your name. Rosemary!"

In the song "Scarborough Fair" there is a recurring line saying "Parsley, sage, ROSEMARY, and thyme". I love the song and I love the name.

Yes, Rosemary IS an herb, but also a very beautiful name that belongs to my mother and myself. And I am very proud of it. I've never been 'embarrassed' by my name or wanted to change it because I didn't like it like other people have. I think it is beautiful.

Rosemary is such a sweet name, but one you can also grow up with. I love it!
pennycarroll  2/24/2008
Rosemary is, in my opinion, the most rabbity name out there. If I had a pet rabbit and it was a doe, I'd definitely name her Rosemary. I have an unusual fascination with this name, but I can't say exactly why.
Pippin  3/16/2008
It's one of the few name combo names that sound pretty, but it sounds old-fashioned, and it makes me think of a morbidly obese woman in a floral dress.
slight night shiver  5/5/2008
Love this name. Beautiful.
mary26  7/19/2008
I love this name, it may be a plant but it sounds so nice. Rose is a beautiful name and I love Mary, when the child is young she may pick to be Rose and then maybe Mary but when she's older she'll call herself Rosemary. I love it! ;)
marythenamefairy  9/27/2008
So what if it's a plant? Why not just say the same about Holly and Heather, if you haven't already? That was a very petty thing to say.
Hushpuppy  12/11/2008
I love this name. It has such a pretty ring to it.
kool_babe14  5/13/2009
So dark and elegant name. Awesome!
Ravynne  8/18/2009
Though I don't like Rose or Mary on its own, Rosemary is a sort of ambrosial name. Romy is a nice nickname for it.
Kerules  10/1/2009
It can suit a little girl, a teenager, a 30 year old woman, and an old lady.

Rosemary Boxer is a fictional character from the ITV murder mystery series Rosemary and Thyme, played by British actress Felicity Kendall. :)

I know a woman whose name is Rosemary. She said that her siblings called her "Ro" when they were kids. It's a pretty name, and a cool nickname.

There's a song called "Rosemary's Granddaughter". I love this name. It's so pretty.
--allison--  7/5/2010
This was my grandmother's name. I really do like it. "Rose" by itself seems pretty to me but lacking in depth. Rosemary provides a more unique name without sounding strange. A whole host of nicknames could come from it, or she could just go by Rosemary. I would consider naming my future child this.
Kaloleina  7/7/2010
I find this name stunning and the herb is a good herb too. The herb is actually considered a Christian herb for those who didn't know.

In The Language of Flowers Rosemary means "Remembrance".
Antique_Cherub  8/30/2010
Love it. So much more pretty that plain old Rose.
Chrila96  12/22/2010
I think of Rosemary from The Giver when I hear this name. I also think of local missions (California) with the crosses and stained glass everywhere and how pretty they are. I really like this name; it sounds classic.
Meapergirl  10/22/2011
Well, this is weird. I'm not entirely sure what the listed pronunciation means... It looks like Rose-Marie. Marie being mə-REE (at least where I'm from) and Mary being MER-ee, it seems like this name should have two places of emphasis or something like that. I've always pronounced Rosemary, ROZ MER-ee. Like Rose Mary, but without a pause.
Meapergirl  10/22/2011
It's pronounced ROZ-mer-ee.

Rosemary Beresford is a former American figure skater.
― Anonymous User  8/5/2012
The listed pronunciation is basically ROSE-Mary. The upside down e is a long a, like in air or Mary. This name is absolutely beautiful, as are nearly all the ros- names :) theres quite a few nicknames too, like ro, rose, Rosie, or Mary. I like it as Rosemary or Rose with the middle name Mary, or even Rose-Mary. Whatever floats your boat =P I just really wish this name would become more popular along with the other ros- names!

While not exactly a bearer per se, there is a Polish folk song entitled "O Moj Rozmarynie" (accent marks missing) which translates to "Oh My Rosemary". It's a beautiful song even without knowing what it means, and it becomes even more so if one finds a translation of the lyrics.
TomMH2  10/7/2013
I think Rosemary is a very pretty name, but if you plan to name your daughter this, be aware of the possibility that a few decades down the road, friends and family members who are fans of classic horror movies might decide to make "Rosemary's baby" jokes about your grandchild. (Not a huge deal, but it might bother some people.)
Marauder  8/30/2014
Lovely name for a girl/woman.
― Anonymous User  2/24/2015
Oh, how I love this name. One of my top girl names, actually. It's not as plain as Rose and it's more unique than Mary. Great combination.
― Anonymous User  3/10/2015
I love this name. It sounds very sweet and charming! This is one of the combination names I actually like!
lilpimpteller  6/17/2015
It endlessly entertains me how shortening Rosemary turns it into an entirely different plant. (Rose)

Still, a very nice name. I love Rose, and all the lengthened versions I've heard are just as pretty.
Aliria  11/15/2015
Such a beautiful lovely name :)
marissa91  1/12/2016
This name is sooo pretty. It's sophisticated, yet simple, yet unique. How can that happen with one name? Plus, there are countless different nickname opportunities.

I love this name! It sounds so pretty.
huskyg8  7/30/2017
I don't like Rose, but Rosemary is a really beautiful name with a good sound. It's delicate and elegant, I think it sounds old fashioned but modern at the same time.
