Personal experiences with the name Rosaline: | Edit

We named our daughter Rosaline, typically pronounced rose-uh-line, we pronounce it roz-uh-lyn, which is often confusing for people. We loved the old fashioned spelling for this old fashioned name.

My name is Rosaline but it gets annoying that most people pronounce it Roz-uh-lyn or Roz-uh-leen when I pronounce it Roz-uh-line like a straight line. I love my name and my twin brother is Raydn, which for nicely together, I think.
