    How would you pronounce Rosalind?

    Would do you think most people would pronounce Rosalind - with a short o (Rah-za-lind) or long o (Roh-za-lind)?

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I'd pronounce it like "Rah-za-lind"

    'ROZ-a-lind' is the correct pronunciation. Short 'o' like pot.

    Rosalind I pronounce like the flower-Rose a lind. If you are looking for the ah sound, I would go for Rosalyn, pronounced like Jocelyn.

    I pronounce it Rahz-ah-lind, with the middle ah and the d at the end being very soft sounds.
