Actually pronounced Rose-a-leen. The Gaelic version, RÓISÍN, pronounced Rosh-een.

Since the 1880's Rosaleen hasn't appeared on the top 1000 list.

I know a few people named this, and all of them say their name like ROSE-ah-leen. I've never heard the other pronunciation, and honestly, I don't think it's as pretty.

Rosaleen was the maid of Lily in "The Secret Life of Bees".

Rosaleen is my favorite "Rose" name. I think it isn't too simple, too popular, sounds feminine, and also sounds mature enough.

In the "Dark Rosaleen" poem, the title character is a pretty obvious personification of Catholic Ireland and the poem is a rallying call for resistance to British rule. Rosaleen is sick, and can be revived with "wine from the Pope", for instance.
