So classic and sweet. At the top of the best diminutive of Rose. Never doubt if this name would not be okay because it is more than okay- it's perfect!

It's pretty, but it's not my favorite rose name.

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.

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.

Such a beautiful lovely name :)

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.

I love this name. It sounds very sweet and charming! This is one of the combination names I actually like!

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.

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.)

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

There's a song called "Rosemary's Granddaughter". I love this name. It's so pretty.

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.

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.

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.

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! ;)

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.

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.

Rosemary is such a sweet name, but one you can also grow up with. I love it!

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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.
