So unique and beautiful. Much better than it's English counterpart, Rosy.

Róisín can also be pronounced Row-Sheen, as is with my daughter. This can be due to the accent in Ireland Northern and the Free state of Ireland (Eire).

One of my friends back in school was called Róisín and although it's such a beautiful name, virtually no teacher was able to pronounce it properly.

I think it's a pretty name. Although, even though it's a girls name, I really like it for a boys name, personally.

It makes me think of raisins.

Isn't this pronounced ROSE-EN? I always thought it was.

This name is very pretty. I know a girl named this, but the only problem is that she gets called the weirdest things by substitute teachers when they try to say it. I always thought you said it Ro-sheen. Very nice.

I hate it when people mispronounce this beautiful name!
-- Luangi  4/8/2007
This looks really pretty, how it's spelled, but its pronunciation is awful. 'Rosh-een' sounds really tacky.

I just found this beautiful poem about a Roisin. It's very famous in Ireland, where I clearly should have been born : )

I love this name, odd but beautiful. I like 'Rose-een' better then 'rosh-een' so that how I would use it with my daughter.

My name is Roisin, and people do find it really hard to say in England. Even after I have told them it's Row-sheen, they usually call me Ru-shin because of the accent differences. My mother's family in Northern Ireland call me ra-sheen, so I think it does depend where you're from.

It's a nice name, I like the way it is pronounced but it looks too much like the word raisin to me.

My neighbor-of-Irish-descent bears this name, and we call her "Rosie" for short.

I first saw the name on this website and never looked at the way it is pronounced. I always said it as Roy-sin, but now I see it is said Row-sheen. Still, it's pretty either way.

This is a beautiful name! It's a lot nicer than Rosie, ugh.
-- BTM  8/24/2011
I know a Roisin but she goes by Ro.

My name is Roisin. How ever I live in Australia and the name is very very uncommon here. I only know 3 other Roisin's. At school and everywhere especially if it is at assembly or the teachers calling out the roll, they always say my name wrong. I correct them by saying 'Rosheen' but sometimes they just don't get it. But I love my name because it is so unique, and a lot of people love my name.
