    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.

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