I think this name sounds pretty. It's one of my favorites. I think it works nicely from baby to adulthood. Cutesy, but not too cutesy.
When I was in middle school, I had a stage where I "Made names my own" by giving them funky spellings. Rosalee, Karissa, and Delanie (Delaney) were my favorites. I still like Karissa.

This is my daughter's name. I live in Belgium and here the name is not too popular but not too common either. We are very happy we picked this name for our little one. It suits her perfectly. :-)

The submitted name “Rosalee” is a real name so I think it should be added to the website fully.

I love this name it’s so girly with lots of nicknames like Rosa, Rosie, or if you make her name something like Rosalie Louise it could be Rosie Lou.

I love Rosalie! Well, I actually like almost all names that start with "Rose-", like Rosemary, Rosabella, Rosselle, Rosalind, Rossanna, Rosalía, Rosamund, etc. I find them all very elegant, feminine, and flattering, and it's great for any age. Hopefully these types of names start to gain a little more popularity, because I get the feeling that most parents see them as grandmother's names.

Up until very recently I wasn't a huge fan of Rosalie, but then I heard the song "Rosalie" by Jarrod Dickenson and it is now one of my favorite girl names. It has a very soft, sweet, French, feminine, elegant, and romantic sound which I really like. Sure it's kind of an old Lady-ish name as well, but every old Lady was a Child once so I don't see why that would be an issue.
I can picture this name on a female of any age. A happy little girl, an outgoing teenager, and a beautiful and elegant young lady. If I ever have a daughter some day I will definitely consider using it.

This is the prettiest name. My own name is Rosalyn but recently I took into consideration how pretty the name Rosalie was. It sounds so soft. I imagine a person who has this name as being really sweet-tempered and gentle. And it's not used so much. I haven't ever known anyone with this name surprisingly. It is beautiful. :)

I think that Rosalie has a lovely elegant and vintage vibe. I like it pronounced both in French and English. The first time I heard it was in the Twilight Saga. I don't think it is a bad association, nor a problem. Rosalie has been used far before the Saga and will be used by the next generation that probably will not have so many ties with these books. I mean that Twilight is actually only one of the hundreds of book series that exist.

This name is the epitome of retro beauty. I am really happy that it's becoming popular for girls again. I also like Rosemary, Rosabel, Rosalind, Rosamond, and Rosaline. Rose and Rosa are nice, too. I hate Roseanne, though.

One of my younger sister's names is Rosalie Luna. I think it’s perfect for her. When she was younger, we always called her “Rosie”, but now it’s an elegant name that she can use for a long time coming. So far, she hasn’t run into any girls her age with the same name as her. It was my parents' dream to give all their children a unique name in the hope that it would individualize them.

I think this name is so beautiful. There's a character with this name on a TV show called Grimm but she spells her name as Rosalee. I think I prefer the "ee" spelling over "ie". It looks better to me when written down.

My youngest (a one year old) daughter is named Rosalie, and it fits her so perfectly. Her full name is Rosalie Maeve, but for the most part we just call her Rosie. It has a class to it, but you can also go for the short, sweet, and quirky nickname of Rosie and that's just adorable to me. A woman can grow into Rosalie. It fits a little girl but can also be imagined on an older woman. I think it's a great name!

I have an almost 2 year old daughter called Rosalie. She really suits her name, she is beautiful and always smiling, she has 2 big brothers so she can also be quite feisty and sticks up for herself too, so she is definitely not very girlie, and it still suits her. I always get compliments on her name. Surprisingly no one ever asks if I got the name from Twilight! We sometimes call her Rose or Rosie as a nickname. My family love her name, especially my Mum who tells me off for shortening it! I haven't met any other little girls called Rosalie yet which surprises me. I love my little Rosalie.

I fell in love with the name after I heard a beautiful song called "Rosalie" by Jarrod Dickenson. It is a quite lovely song. If I have a daughter, I would love to name her Rosalie "Rose" Victoria, after all of the flower names in my family! It is really a wonderful name.♡

The name doesn't remind me of Twilight, it reminds me of grace and beauty. It's been four years since twilight, and to be honest, I think Rosalie turned people off from the name because even though she is beautiful, she was described as having a bad attitude and super conceited. I think Rosalie is just an amazing name and it sounds refreshing, but I think middle names can be easy. I feel these are good combos, Rosalie Paige, Rosalie Avia, Rosalie Wren, Rosalie Gwen, Rosalie Corinne (even though it's long it just so classy to me), Rosalie Charlotte, Rosalie Scarlett, Rosalie Harper and my favorite Rosalie Winter it's just so poetic to me with that combo, so good luck.

My 18 month old's name is Rosalie, it's been a favorite of mine for years. It's got that elegant, sophisticated feel that is not commonly found in modern girls' names. My daughter looks exactly how I would imagine a girl named Rosalie to look: sandy blond hair, beautiful green eyes, always smiling. She is sometimes called Rose or Rosie, both very cute nicknames, in my opinion (I had been considering naming her Rose for a long time). Obviously it's gaining popularity but I don't think you'll run into very many Rosalie's in the near future. I would highly recommend this beautiful name to anyone looking for a vintage name that's not considered 'old ladyish' but isn't overly popular. I can't tell you how many compliments I've gotten on her name; I would love to meet another little girl named Rosalie and I think my daughter would as well!

There is a song called Rosalie. It was written by Bob Segar, and then Thin Lizzy covered the song. Thin Lizzy I think made it popular, because their version is WAY BETTER! It has that Rock a roll, sexy feel to it.
Maybe that's why some people think that Rosalie is an Irish name, because of Thin Lizzy. Funny thing is, only half of the band is Irish, Scott is American (his bday is on St. Pat's day lol) and Brian (R) is from Scotland. Only Phill and Brian (D) are Irish.

Well-known British actress Rosalie Crutchley (1920-97). Rosalie Crutchley was a great actress, but I don't think even she would claim to be a great beauty - she took strong and sometimes slightly sinister parts, and the name Rosalie, being so pretty and feminine, didn't suit her at all!

Rosalie is also a character in the British "Rupert Bear" stories.
