Rose and Anne are staples for girls’ middle names. Smoosh ‘em together, and you arrive at a romantic, feminine and surprisingly uncommon appellation that sounds just right in the first spot.

You’ll hear the name in English, as well as Italian and a smattering of other European languages. The Swedish all-girl pop group Play included a Rosanna; Google searches turn up Rosannas in Norway, Germany and Denmark. Canary Islands-born Rosana Arbelo is a Latin pop singer.

Rosana sounds just right with today’s chart-toppers Isabella and Olivia. And yet, she’s undeniably distinctive. Rosie is a spunky nickname option, conjuring up the capable World War II icon. You might even use Roxy, though it is a bit of a stretch.
