    How to spell the name pronounced ROSE-uh-lin

    Hey there! We’re having trouble figuring out how to spell our favorite girl name. The problem is, it’s most likely going to be mistakenly pronounced RAHZ-uh-Lin. So what is the best way to spell it without being to complicated but sounding the way we want.
    Options so far: Roselyn(n), Rosalyn(n), Rosilyn, Rosealyn, Roseline, Rosaline.

    Feel free to add your own variation!

    Rosalyn makes the most sense to me.

    Good luck!

    I knew a girl with this name called Rosalin, which I really liked. From your options I'd go for Rosalyn. Roselyn could end up being a two-syllable Rose-lyn, while Roseline and Rosaline might be pronounced as if rhyming with "fine".

    In my opinion, Rosalyn is your best bet.
    Rosealyn would give you the phonetic pronunciation, but the spelling is complicated and is the one most likely to constantly misspelled.
    Rosilyn looks like RAHZ-uh-lin to me.
    Roselyn looks like Rose-lyn.
    Rosaline and Roseline look the best phonetically and are often pronounced Rose-uh-lin, but both can also be pronounced as Ros-uh-line (which is how I pronounce them, tbh)

    Edited to say that I second the suggestion of Rosalin and that there's also Rosalen

    Was going to suggest Rosalin - which is medieval form of Rosalind / Rosaline. Out your options I also like Rosalyn.
