    Lightbulb Pronunciation of Caroline

    I'm confused on the pronunciation of Caroline. I've heard people say Care-o-lyn and others say Care-o-line. How do you say it? I prefer the latter pronunciation, but I'm afraid I'm mispronouncing it.

    I say it with the hard 'i' sound rather than the soft, so that the last syllable rhymes with 'brine' (as in a turkey).

    This is the more popular pronunciation, I believe.

    I had a neighbor named Caroline and she pronounced the end lean. I never heard it pronounced this way. I have always pronounced it with a line ending.
