In Ireland there would be a fada (accent) on the second i. That's what gives the ee sound.

Nicknames: Ro?

Row sheen. My neice is called Roisín and my sister calls her Rowsh for short. She doesn't really have any nicknames.

Im in NI and it gets pronounced raw-sheen more that ro- sheen here but ro-shee is the proper pronounciation.

Row-sheen in the south of Ireland, Rosh-een in the north as a a general rule, but it varies.

Would have loved to call my yet-to-be-born Roisin but in France so the "R" would be too hard. Beautiful name.

the ro rhymes with go.

I'd use rosie as a nn.
