    How do you pronounce Rosaline?

    I absolutely love the name Rosaline but I am worried about pronunciation problems... Do you personally pronounce it as Rose-a-line (rhymes with mine) or Rose-a-leen (rhymes with bean)?

    I say Rose-a-leen, and I prefer this to rose-a-line.

    I say Rose-a-lyn. But I'm probably really wrong.

    I also say Rose-a-lyn, but of the two I'm more likely to say Rose-a-line.
