Rosaline was Romeo's first "true love" in Romeo and Juliet.

It can also be pronounced ROZ-a-line. That is how I've heard it when seeing the play performed.

This is a beautiful name. I like it with a "leen" sound at the end rather than a "line".

I think the name is very pretty, although it was not Romeo's true love, he thought he loved her but it was lust/infatuation.

Pronounced "RAHZ-a-lien" in Shakespeare.

Rosaline means 'Little Rose' or 'Beautiful Rose'.

An amazing middle name. Rose is too much of a common middle name! I like this name a lot. Pretty.

This is my favourite rose name. Rosaline has a soft and romantic sound, and a kind of dramatic and artistic beauty, without sounding over-the-top. It reminds me of the beautiful track _Baragoku Otome_ by Ali Project. I think roses are beautiful and I love Rosaline's ties to them. Despite Rosalie seeming like a blonde name to me, Rosaline makes me picture a gorgeous, but slightly creepy, Victorian doll-like Lolita with dark ringlets, thick-lashed brown eyes and a clear, porcelain complexion.

I think this is a wonderful name; really historic and lovely-sounding. Personally, I pronounce it roz-a-line, which is the British English pronunciation. I think this name is definitely worth using, and would suit any age. :)

I like the pronunciation "ROSE-uh-line" or "rose-uh-LEEN."
