Sexy and sophisticated name! Awesome!

I think Rosalind is quite pretentious-sounding and too old-fashioned to suit a child or teenager. It makes me think of an old woman. But I think that with the right abbreviation or combined with another name, the right person with a really strong personality could update this name and make it into something fresh and modern. And of course, who wouldn't want their daughter to be named after a beautiful rose? I think this name has potential.

Somebody once told me that the name Rosalind means "snake" in another language - however I find this quite hard to believe!

Rosalind is a character in William Shakespeare's play As You Like It.

For some reason I really love this name, it's just so classic.

Also pronounced RAHZ-a-lind.

I think this name is much easier to pronounce than Roslyn.

I've heard this name pronounced without the "d" at the end, i.e, "ROZ-a-lin".

I definitely want to name my daughter some form of Rosalind/Rosalyn/Rosamund/etc. but I like pronouncing not like Rahz-a-lind. I'm scared people will say it like that when coming across her and I don't want to put her through correcting everyone.

A famous bearer is American singer Rosalind Ashford (b. September 2, 1943). She's a soprano R&B/soul singer, best known for her work with the famed group Martha and the Vandellas.

My name is Rosalind, and I have to say it indeed is a "heavy" name for a child or a teen. I have never really liked my name, although many people have told me they think it is beautiful. I usually go by "Roz" or my family name, Rozzie.
99.9% of people mispronounce my name, at least in the US, where I was born. I get "Roseland" "Rozlin" "Roslin", and all other variants EXCEPT for "rahzalind". Native Spanish speakers ALWAYS call me "Rosalinda", which I do not mind as much as "Roseland". Just something to think about if you are planning to name your child Rosalind! And I was named after Shakespeare's Rosalind.

I love this name, and I'm surprised it isn't used more often.

I really like this name; I think it's fresh and young-sounding, but has a deeper historical presence as well. So basically, I think this name has the best of both worlds in terms of usability. :)

All "Rose" names seem to have a dual meaning and history depending on whether you associate it with the Germanic elements hrod or hros or the Latin rosa. Either way, a beautiful name, though I prefer Rosalyn.

Rosalind is a delectably beautiful Shakespearean name that is my teenager friend's name - I envy her. It's so stupid to condemn this or any other name as an "old lady's" name - old ladies were babies once, and naming styles recycle themselves, though Rosalind has never been used enough at any one time to be dated to a particular decade - a real advantage.
It's much more stylish and classy that Rosalyn and is so perfect as a middle name as well, suiting many names and a welcome refreshing change from Rose.

A famous bearer of this name is Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson's daughter, Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, born July 2012. :-)

So pretty :) I love all the ros- names like Roslyn, Rosalie, and Rosemary!
-- Oohvintage  1/13/2013
My name is Rosalind. It is usually mispronounced along with my last name. So this is a double whammy. I get Rose a Lin, rose Lin, rarely the proper pronunciation of Rahzalind. However, I do like my name. I haven't met many with the same spelling but do tend to correct people who do not pronounce it correctly.

The name Rosalind was only given to 72 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

I think this is the prettiest version of the Rose names! (Rosalie, Rosemary etc.) Literary Shakespearean name, and I get the image of a strong and unusual classic. It can be seen as rather stodgy/stuffy, but I see it as very pretty and spunky yet feminine. Rosalind Franklin is a wonderful namesake too! This is one of my top contenders for a future daughter, or at least potentially a middle name.

I think the name Rosalind is a beautiful name, and (it means beautiful rose) I have a cousin with this name but her is spelled different and I know somebody else with this name who is special to me, so yeah, I will name my daughter Rosalind.

My name is Rosalind and I have to say that yes, I have had a lot of people say my name wrong when I was young. Of course, by younger people my age, but a lot of people say Rosalinda because I'm part Spanish and I'm like "No, it's just Rosalind" lol but I love my name. I feel like I have a unique and beautiful name... my mom did a great job picking my name. All my friends call me "Roz" and I love it... very proud to be a Rosalind!

My name is Rosalind and I was born in 87' I'm of Mexican decent and I'm always having to correct people as to how to pronounce my name. My mother pronounces it how its spelt ROSA-lind or Rose-ah-lynd. I think if you want it pronounced Rahz-a-lynd than a "z-"instead of an "s" is the more smarter and simplest choice. Rozalind... Don't you think? And although I have to correct, sometimes I love it because I've rarely met another Rosalind... makes me feel more unique!
