Hi what does everyone think of Rosalyn?

kaytee87 Sat 10-Feb-18 20:27:59

I like it.

TidyDancer Sat 10-Feb-18 20:28:17

Lovely name, prefer the spellings of Rosaline or Roselyn though.

TatianaLarina Sat 10-Feb-18 20:31:11

Prefer Rosalie I think it’s prettier.

annie8417 Sat 10-Feb-18 20:31:12

Yes I like the spelling Rosaline too but wasn't sure on how to say it 😳

1haudyerwheesht Sat 10-Feb-18 20:32:21

I like Rosaleen

Smoliver Sat 10-Feb-18 20:51:09

It's a very pretty name smile

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 10-Feb-18 21:07:55

Rosaleen is beautiful.

Pompom42 Sat 10-Feb-18 21:09:32

Ahh lovely x we've still got alittle while yet but we love it

ChocolateCrunch Sat 10-Feb-18 21:23:36

I prefer Rosalie or Rosalind

kaytee87 Sat 10-Feb-18 21:31:08

I would pronounce Rosalyn as Roza-lin and Rosaline as Rosa-Leen

I do really like Rosalie with nn Rosa

chocoshopoholic Sat 10-Feb-18 21:32:37

Against the grain. I prefer the spelling as Rosalyn like my great aunt. I haven't come across anyone younger with it, but think it's a lovely name

A lady I used to work with is called Rosalyn, she's smart, funny and very clever. She is in her early 40's, it's a name which suits both a baby and a grown woman.

It’s my mums name, on her bc it’s spelled Rosalind but she has always spelt it Rosaline. Hers is pronounced Roz-er-Lyn. I’m not a fan to be honest & this may out me but one grandchild callers her big bad rozzer! Roz to everybody else to which sound really harsh for a little girl.

athingthateveryoneneeds Sat 10-Feb-18 21:43:33

I like it, and almost used it, but I didn't like the.inevitable Roz nicknames. I wanted a rose name, though, and we ended up.witb Rosabel. (polarised opinions on that one)

Having said that, Rose names are quite ubiquitous, and a Roz sound isn't nearly as popular. I don't think you can go wrong with Rosalyn.

NoSquirrels Sat 10-Feb-18 21:44:16

I like it, although I’d go for Rosalind myself.

annie8417 Sat 10-Feb-18 21:49:20

For a nickname we were hoping it'd be shortened to Rosa x

itwasmexxx Sat 10-Feb-18 21:49:41

I know someone called Rosalind and she's an evil narcissist, so no!

kaytee87 Sat 10-Feb-18 22:19:57

I'd maybe go with the spelling Rosaline then op as to me Rosalyn has a Z sound rather than the softer S in Rosa.

MountainDweller Sat 10-Feb-18 22:30:35

Pretty and timeless (am biased as my middle name is Roslyn) grin

MikeUniformMike Sun 11-Feb-18 15:01:24

Rosalind is lovely. Rosa is a name in it's own right and it's pretty.

RavenWings Sun 11-Feb-18 15:05:45

I like Rosalyn/Rosalind and Rosa. Not liking Rosaline, Rosaleen or Roselyn.

I also like Rosanna, Rosalie, Roisin.
