Rosalia is a feminine name of Latin origin reserved for those who embody the very essence of a "rose." Beautiful as baby may be, such adoration is not reserved for mere aesthetics alone. Rosalia is actually derived from an Ancient Roman festival of the same title during which Romans would decorate the graves of their ancestors with rose garlands and wreaths. Far from indulging the macabre, Rosalia is a time to celebrate the rebirth and love promised by the goddesses Venus, Proserpina, and Flora. After all, the rose's many intricacies and seasonality made it a powerful symbol for the pleasures of life—be it desire, transformation, or beauty—and the darkness they can hold. To name your little one Rosalia is to embrace their varying complexities and honor every season of their sweet life.
