Rosie is better than Rose because it's easier to say.

I'm really sorry, but this name sounds like an old person's name! It's a nice name, though.

I love the name Rosie. I think it isn't as plain as Rose.
-- Jassie  5/25/2007
It's an okay name. I know someone named Rosie and she's okay. I am glad this name ever exsisted.

Again, why not Rose? Rose is a beautiful old-fashioned, elegant name. Rosie is only nice as a pet form, but never as a name itself.

Rosie is a sweet, classic name. Much better than Rose itself, as it is overused (particularly in middle names).

Rosie could also be used as a pet form of any name beginning with `Ros` such as Rosemary, Rosina, Rosanna and Rosetta.

It's a cute nickname, but it always makes me think of that loud, irritating, and hideous talk show host, Rosie O'Donnell.

My name is Rosanna but I go by Rosie, I have done all my life. I like my name but I don't like how people are always telling me that they have pets named Rosie! :D It's damn annoying! Also being associated with that annoying American TV host is irritating.

Rosie is a sweet and pleasant name. The 'zee' gives it a warm and friendly sound, like Daisy.

I'm sorry, but I hate the name Rosie! It sounds so stiff and grating, and reminds me of a bratty two-year-old. I much prefer Rose, or any other "Rose" name for that matter.

"Rosie" is a song by Joan Armatrading.

The song is about a transvestite prostitute.

Can also be a masculine nickname for Roosevelt.

Rosie is such a sweet little name for a beautiful little girl. I was deliberating between Poppy and Rosie. I have decided on sweet little Rosie.

Rosie Pope. English-born, now calling New York City, USA, her home with husband and two beautiful sons (congratulations on new birth!). She is a designer and all-around guide to pregnant women; with her own television show, Bravo's "Pregnant In Heels."

I hate this name! Why not just Rose? At least Rose has elegance and class! I don't think I'd be able to grow up with the name Rosie. Sorry to anyone with this name.

My friend spells her name Rosea.

I once knew a girl called Rosie. She pronounced it RO-see (see as in the letter C) not RO-zee to make it sound softer.
Personally, I wouldn't pronounce it as RO-see as it leaves a gap between the o and the s, and there is a teasing possibility - the nickname "Roce" rhymes with gross so RO-see = gross-ie. Another teasing possibility is that "Roce" sounds a bit like Roach, so RO-see the Roach or Roachie.
RO-zee, even though it has a harsher sound to it, it runs more smoothly, and sounds better. If you prefer the RO-see pronunciation I suggest altering the spelling to Rocie or Roacey to avoid pronunciation mistakes.

Rose is way more elegant than this name.
-- MeinNameIstMelissa  6/12/2013
Come on, this is a nickname! It sounds stupid as a given name. Besides, it reminds me of Rosie O'Donnell, and she's very obnoxious and annoying.

A famous fictional bearer would be Rosie the Riveter, a character partially made popular by artist Norman Rockwell during World War Two. She was intended to represent feminism and woman's importance in factories making things for the war effort. The character actually originated in 1942 in a song by Redd Evans and John Jacob Loeb in which Rosie was described as a determined assembly line worker during WW2. The Rosie in the song is said to be based off of Rosie Bonavitas, a woman from California.

Compared to Rose, it seems like the one that has to be 'on top'.
-- Hushpuppy  3/24/2014
Reminds me of very blonde, into-fashion types of girls and women. Sometimes I still prefer Rose, though.
