A reason for Rosezena?

The curious baby name Rosezena was one-hit wonder smack-dab in the middle of the 20th century:

  • 1952: unlisted
  • 1951: unlisted
  • 1950: 6 baby girls named Rosezena [debut]
  • 1949: unlisted
  • 1948: unlisted

This might be random…or it might have a specific cause.

And if there’s a cause, I’m wondering if it wasn’t a woman named RoseZena Latta. She was a singer whose performances (often in Oregon) were mentioned in the local newspapers from the mid-1940s to the mid-1950s. (According to this family tree, her mother’s name was Zena Rose, so that’s where her name came from.)

I’m not sure about this theory, though, so I’m putting out there in the hope that some mid-century RoseZenas stop by and tell me where their names came from…
