In a book I read in fourth grade (The Summer of the Penderwicks), one of the main characters was Rosalind, and her father called her Rosie as a pet name. It was the first time I'd seen the name, so I assumed it was Rosa-lind. I have a long history of pronouncing names wrong (I thought Chloe was Shlow for years, and I had thought Penelope was Penel-ope- the list goes on.) It is Raw-za-lind, but I prefer the way I said it. Sigh...
I would use the spelling Rosaline, but that could be said as Rosa-line or Rosa-lean as well as Rosa-lin. I do love Rosalina, though, and the Super Mario Galaxy reference is nerdy in a cool way.~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor heaven "lena" ~ vivienne ailsa ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai sacha ~ ezra link ~ satoshi rowan ~

I pronounce it with a short "o," and I think it's a lovely name just as it is
