In Sweden we pronounce it the original French way, kah-ro-LEEN. It is also spelt Karolin, but Caroline is the most common spelling.

In English pronunciation the name Caroline is not pronounced KER-o-lien. It is always pronounced KAR-o-lien. I also have to agree with many of the comments about being called Carolyn instead of Caroline. It's incredible laziness to not listen to how a name is pronounced. I grew up as the only Caroline in my school, but there were many Carolyns. So I got lumbered with that, and I loathe the name Carolyn. Just awful.

I haven't seen the Dutch pronunciation of the name. Me myself am Dutch, and the Dutch way to say this name is most likely;
"ka-ro-LEEN-ə" or "ka-ro-LEEN-e".

I'm a Caroline and prefer the pronunciation Kah-Ro-Line, CARE-o-line tends to be the American pronunciation which grates a little. I have to say the most irritating version I get is car-line. Despite all this, and referring to myself as Caroline always, my parents and family have always called me Carrie, lol!
