Rosalie for me! Rosaline is nice, but Rosalie just seems prettier to me. I agree that Sophie and Rosalie have a similar vibe, too. I like that if you use Rosalie, you could keep Evangeline open as an option for a future daughter--Rosalie and Evangeline work together really well, imo, but Rosaline and Evangeline are too matchy for me.

Tell your family that Rosaline is anything but made up! Rosaline was actually the name of the woman Romeo first loved before moving on to Juliet--Rosaline rejected him--so you can trace it back to Shakespeare. And perhaps beyond, I can't be sure.
Personally, I prefer Rosaline. It makes me think less of Twilight, which is what a lot of people would turn to in this day and age with Rosalie and Rosaline just comes off as a bit more exotic. "Rose" is a great nickname.
