I think Rosie is a really nice name. It sounds really gentle and feminine, yet strong at the same time. I, personally, think it ages pretty well. I think it would suit a girly-girl beautifully, and I honestly think it would be really cute and sweet for a tomboy, as well ;)
Overall, I think Rosie is a gorgeous name.
Sounds childish. I prefer Rose.
The name sounds nice, but it is too childish. For proof, I can imagine a 5-year-old with this name, but not an adult.
The “ring around the Rosie” song actually started from the Black Death. The people believed that disease was caused by a bad smell “miasma”. That’s why the lyrics mention sneezing, ashes and roses.
(The Black Death was a disease from rats that might have started in China and spread to the UK. It was called the Black Death because the sufferer's skin would blacken due to subepidermal hemorrhages)
Ring around the Rosie,
Pocket Full of Posies,
Ashes, Ashes,
We all fall down.
*Insert Creepy Little Girl Laugh*

Other than that it's cute.
I don't like this name, but it's definitely better than Posie/Posy.
Kind of simple and to the point, even if it rolls off the tongue a bit stiffly.
Also short for "Rosalind".
Just stick with Rose or some other variant.
I rather like the name.
Really Rosie was a play by Maurice Sendak and Carole King.
Not bad, I think of a princess when I hear it. I think it’s better off as a nickname for Rose, though.
I can see this working on all ages. I love it! Quite popular in the UK.
Go for it if you like it, but a child will probably outgrow this name.
Doesn't pass the president test.
Rosie is too sickly sweet for my taste. Rose is simply gorgeous.
Awful name. Silly, meaningless, weightless. It sounds like a red diaper rash.
Only as a nickname, Rosie does not sound like a name that an old lady could have...would look silly on a grave.
Rosie Joseph is the daughter of Jenna and Tyler Joseph, who is the lead singer of Twenty One Pilots. She is adorable!
I wanted to call my younger daughter Rosanna, Rosie for short, but her father doesn't believe in shortening a name and I didn't want to listen to 'her name's Rosanna, not Rosie' for the rest of my life, so we settled on Rosie as her name. However, she thought Rosie was too childish and legally changed it to Rosana as soon as she was 16.
Never mind, I like Rosie better than Rosy.
It's cute... I think Rosy is a better spelling though.

*as a first name, not a nickname.
Adorable as a nickname.
Rosie is the name of Caillou’s little sister. As much as Caillou gets on my nerves, I have to say, his little sister Rosie is adorable.
Rosie is the name of one of Donna's best friends in the musical, Mamma Mia!
Rosie Ruiz is a Cuban American runner who took part in the 1980 Boston Marathon, easily achieving a new female record in the competition and the third best female time in marathons altogether.
She was quickly disqualified however, when it was revealed (in addition to other severe reasons of doubt) that witnesses had seen her join the run from the sidelines under a mile before the finishing line. Later on it was found out that Ruiz had also cheated on the marathon that had qualified her for the Boston race, that time by pretending to be injured and then taking the subway to the goal.
This is my name, and I really like it! Although a lot of people say it's just a nickname, I think it is just as good as a first name too. Reminds me of the name Rose, but I think Rosie sounds nicer and is not as overused.

Makes an okay nickname.
I have an aunt who goes by this as a nickname. I think Rosie sounds a little too cutesy. ^^; I MUCH prefer Rose. (:
Update: I now love Rosie and Rose equally now. I don't know what I was thinking back then... Rosie IS a cute name but I happen to LOVE cute style names like Lily, Kitty, Dottie etc. So I don't mind this name being cute anymore! :)
The name Rosie is ok, but sounds a bit 'replaced', I think.
Reminds me of very blonde, into-fashion types of girls and women. Sometimes I still prefer Rose, though.
Compared to Rose, it seems like the one that has to be 'on top'.
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.
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.
Rose is way more elegant than this name.
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.
Rosie was the name of Albert's mother in the movie War Horse.
Rosie and Jim was a children's TV programme.
My friend spells her name Rosea.
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.
Rosie Moon was the main character in Brigid Lowry's Australian book Guitar Highway Rose.
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."
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.
Can also be a masculine nickname for Roosevelt.
"Rosie" is a song by Joan Armatrading.

The song is about a transvestite prostitute.
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 sweet and pleasant name. The 'zee' gives it a warm and friendly sound, like Daisy.
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.
It's a cute nickname, but it always makes me think of that loud, irritating, and hideous talk show host, Rosie O'Donnell.
Rosie could also be used as a pet form of any name beginning with `Ros` such as Rosemary, Rosina, Rosanna and Rosetta.
Rosie is a sweet, classic name. Much better than Rose itself, as it is overused (particularly in middle names).
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.
It's an okay name. I know someone named Rosie and she's okay. I am glad this name ever exsisted.
I love the name Rosie. I think it isn't as plain as Rose.
I'm really sorry, but this name sounds like an old person's name! It's a nice name, though.
Rosie is the name of Samwise Gamgee's wife in Lord of the Rings. They get married at the end of the final book, The Return of the King.
Rosie is better than Rose because it's easier to say.
