Sorry for the amount of threads!!! Roseanna I love, but people think it should be spelt Rosanna and I know that's the original, but why is it? It's pronounced Rose-Anna and when I see Rosanna, I see Roz-Anna :/

Well there's nothing stopping you from spelling it that way.

I'd spell Rosianna and pronounce Rosy-anna. Feels more natural this way, but that is only because I am related to one.

Just spell it Roseanna.

That way you (hopefully, possibly, maybe) avoid people thinking you've named her after Rosanna, the awful Toto song.

To me, Roseanna looks like two words missing a space or a hyphen, and should either be Rose Anna or Rose-Anna. I also think you might get people pronouncing it Ro-see-anna or Ro-seen-na because they aren't used to seeing it spelt Roseanna. But in the end, it's a personal preference and a lovely name either way.

My name is Rosanne - I've always liked the spelling - my parents spelt it this way so that it felt like one name instead of two pushed together
