Roseline/ Rosaline Pronunciation
I like the pronunciation ROSE-uh-line but I know it's not as traditional as ROZ-lyn/ line or ROSE-uh-leen so if you met a girl with the first pronunciation, would you assume the parents were ignorant? Also, does the Rosaline spelling make more sense with that pronunciation or does it matter? I prefer Roseline because the other way, I just zero in on the word saline.
ETA: I'm in Oklahoma, if that makes a difference.

No, I would not think you were ignorant. I think the prn. depends on where you live. I'm in the States and my instinct is to prn. it Rose-uh-leen. The Roseline spelling looks like rose-line to me. Have you considered Rosalie?
