Rosetta (or Rashîd) is the name of a town in Egypt, on the Mediterranean coast.

Rosetta is also the name of a stone tablet found in 1799 near the town of Rashîd, containing the same text in Egyptian heirogluphics, Egyptian script, and Greek, making it a keystone in deciphering hieroglyphics.

Actually it's been in use in the UK for longer than that. It's a family name in my family, and the first one was born in 1806. I imagine it became popular after the Rosetta Stone came to England in 1802.

I quite like this name, and I don't mind that it has the association with the Egyptian stone. I probably quite like it because of the association with Piper Laurie, whose real birth name is Rosetta Jacobs. :-)

I really like it, and it might be my favorite form of Rose. Also, I think the association with the stone is good, though the language-learning program may be a downside.

The first thing I think of when I hear the name Rosetta is the Rosetta Stone (the important archaeological find, not the language-learning software). That's not a bad association, especially if you like history. The second thing that comes to mind is that ROSETTA is an anagram of TOASTER, but that's not bad either because toasters are useful.
