I heard the name pronounced with the 'line' ending, line as in row, as per Caroline. I like it that way, but it does sound, from the comments, as if there is some confusion. For Rosalyn, that is how I would spell it - looks nice and it is clear how you would say the name.

I prefer the Rosaleen spelling and pronunciation.

I actually called my daughter Rosaline pronounced Roz-a-Lyn. I think its a beautiful name and not very popular now which is also what I liked about it.
