Me neither-I didn't even know the name much, knew one older lady named that. I am truly surprised at how people are saying it, I am in the northeast, but from the south, and am getting it pronounced with said emphasis by maybe 1 out of 3 people. Even my good friend who hails from the midwest said that and also spells it Rosalee, (even though I've written it to her in its correct form/corrected her). Don't get me wrong, there ARE people who are saying it with the emphasis on the preferred/accurate syllable. Either way, I'll need to find a way to live with the name, either by letting it roll off my shoulders (at which I am clearly failing ATM) or find a solution with a nickname.
