As Rosaline is etymologically germanic and derived from the ancient germanic word ros (horse), it really has nothing to do with Rose/s. Therefore pronouncing it Rosa-line would be erroneous in my mind.
Rosalie, Rosalia, Rose/Rosa and names derived therefrom would be a better fits for the Rose/Rosa pronunciation it seems like you desire.Little Lorelei - May 2016Endora - Merida - Viola - Zelda
