Dutch actor and journalist Roos Schlikker is a famous bearer of this name.
I think it's a cute name ^^
In the Netherlands, Roos actually originally came into being as a short form of Rosa, and it is still used as such. Of course, the connection with the Dutch word for 'rose' (which is "roos") is clear, and sometimes parents use it because of that. But Roos as a short form of Rosa is how it all started.Further, this name is also used in Limburgish. The Limburgish pronunciation is the same as the Dutch pronunciation.
I like it but it's a bit too short. I also wouldn't give my daughter a name that is also used as a word. I would love to name my first daughter Rosa and then I'll use Roos as a short form.
Dutch pronunciation is ROWS. [noted -ed]
"Roos" is also used in Belgium. It is pronounced as 'rose'.
Belgian model Roos Van Bosstrateten is a famous bearer of this name.
