All it takes is a wildly successful teen vampire movie to suck life back into a name. Rosalie, which dropped off the popularity polls in the 1980s, owes her reemergence on the baby-name charts in 2009 to “Twilight," which was released the previous year and featured a character named Rosalie (played by Nikki Reed). The name’s floral essence comes from the French name Rosalia, which is derived from the Latin word for “rose.”
