    pronunciation of Rosamund?

    I've added this to my list, and I've been pronouncing it ROSE-a-mund, which sounds gorgeous to me. But nameberry says it's pronounced Rozz-a-mund...

    Is either pronunciation accepted, or am i pronouncing it wrong? I like it my way, but i dislike the Rozz sound
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    Well, it's rare name. Doubt anyone outside nameberry would know correct pronunciation. Also, I believe both pronunciations are acceptable.
    Cecily Helena, Charlotte Ravenna, Aurora Valkyrie, Rosalyn Amoret, Seraphina June, Cressida Violante
    Anastasia Bridget, Matilda Amethyst, Melody Beatrice, Morgana Giselle

    Robin Lysander, Edmund Ludwig, Erik Florian, Magnus Roland, Percy Beowulf, Edgar Oberon, Emil Orpheus

    I've always pronounced it Rozz-a-mund, but I suppose it could be either.
