    Perhaps spell it Rozaline? I know it's a bit cringey but if you can get the 'roz' bit across then the rest might follow?

    I pronounce it "rose-uh-leen". I think it might not matter about the pronounciation though, depending if you ever use her full name. If its half & half between Rosaline and Rose, then I would consider another spelling. Or another name? Rosalie, Rosemary, Rose-Marie, Rosamund, Rosalind...
    Boys: Maxwell, Bennett, Oliver, Elliott and Archer.

    Girls: Rose, Juliet, Aria, Cora and Scarlett


    Sorry for any random spellings. I'm probably on my nook!

    Pretty much this, I think both prn would be right, one is French the other is English.

    The correct English pronunciation is 'roz-a-line', as previously stated.
