Hello, my name is Rosalind. I too like the fact that not many people have the same name as me. I don't like being called Ros or Rossi which some people think is acceptable. More often than not people usually spell my name wrong, even members of my own family. You would think they would have got the hang of it by now. I have had my name for 57 years.

My name is Rosalind and I am very proud of it. It often gets shortened to Ros or Rossi. I like the fact that it is not a common name and I have never met anyone with the same name and it is not an old fashioned name. It's nice to have a name that is not the same as the others out there.

Another beautiful form of Rose. One of the best. Prefer this over Rosalinda. Such a delightful name.

Rosalind to me is the perfect girl name. It's easy to pronounce, looks good on paper, has many nicknames, and the meaning beautiful rose is great. Definitely top of my list. It isn't overused, either.

I like this name. It can fit any type of girl, whether girly girl or tomboy, or age, whether old or young. This is my favorite rose name, and my favorite girl's name in general. I don't really like the Germanic meaning (soft horse?) but I LOVE the Latin meaning "beautiful rose"
Roz would make a nice nickname. And yes, the S is pronounced like a Z.

I love this name! But I don't understand why it isn't pronounced Rose-ah-lind. I really don't get where the 'Roz' or 'Rahz' comes from.

I think Rosalind is very self important sounding and excessively out-dated, making it impossible to suit a youngster or adolescent. It makes me think about an old lady. In any case, I feel that with the right shortening or consolidated with another name, the perfect individual with a truly solid identity could upgrade this name and make it into something crisp and cutting edge. Also, obviously, who wouldn't need their little girl to be named after a lovely rose? I think this name has potential.

My name is Rosalind too and I love my name, especially the meaning, Beautiful Rose. My mother named me after Rosalind Russell, a famous 19th century actress.

My name is Rosalind and I've grown to love my name more and more everyday! As a kid I hated it because it is hard to spell and people commonly mispronounce it, but it is so unique, I'm 19 years old and have never met anyone face to face who has the exact same name as me! I'm told almost every time I meet someone how beautiful and sophisticated my name is, and I'm able to go by Ros a lot of the time which makes things easier! I was named after my great grandmother who's family is from Italy, so I carry this name with a lot of pride! Anyways I think this name is truly great, your kid will certainly grow into it and be thankful you named them something original and sophisticated someday if you use this name! :)

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. :)

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 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.

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

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.
