User comments for Róisín
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).
Isn't this pronounced ROSE-EN? I always thought it was.
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.
This name is pronounced Ro-jeen (soft j).
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.
I have heard of people named Róisín who pronounce it as ro-SHEEN. I prefer that pronunciation as opposed to ROSH-een. People have mispronounced it as "Rosin," "Roysin," and even "Raisin."
