Cah-ro-line. Like Arrow-line, with a C, a short 'a' as opposed to the long 'a' of Care-oh-line, which I've never heard used. Could be another of the US/UK differences in pronunciation, though.

(kare-uh-line) for Caroline, and (kare-uh-lynn) for Carolyn, when I read them on paper (and when I hear them I match them up that way, too). I know a Caroline who pronounces her name like Carolyn, though, and I never thought anything of it. I like the French (kare-uh-leen) pronunciation best, but I never hear it.Damian Joachim-Raphael Benedict-Jude Marius-Charles Dominic

Carolyn is an invented spelling to get the "lyn" sound ending. Sorry if you don't like it but that's just the way it is. *shrug* Honestly, there isn't any need to get upset over it.Current favorites:
