"Rosina" is a feminine name also come across in Bulgaria (pronounced [Rosina], not [Rozina], with a stress on the [i]), but here it is connected with the Bulgarian noun "rosa" (pronounced [rosa], not [roza], with a stress on the [a]), which means "dew" (The Bulgarian word "roza" means "rose" as a noun).

Rosina Bulwer-Lytton (1802–1882) was the wife of Edward Bulwer-Lytton, the English novelist, poet, playwright and politician who coined such phrases as "the pen is mightier than the sword" and "It was a dark and stormy night." She herself wrote and published fourteen novels, a volume of essays and a volume of letters.

The name is pronounced "ro-ZEE-nə" in English.

Rosina sounds close to the Danish word for a Raisin = Rosin.

I kinda like it, though, for that reason. It's cute!

Italian Promunciation:

Roh-ZEE-Nah

Roll your "R." "O" is nicely rounded; "Oh." An "S" sandwiched between two vowels becomes "Z." Finish "-na" as in the "A" in "Father." [noted -ed]

A British friend of mine is named Rosina, and she really hates it. Apparently people usually mispronounce Rosina so she always introduces herself simply as "Rosie" to people. She feels her parents tried too hard to be fancy when picking her name.

My second middle name is Rosina. It is our family tradition going back several generations for the eldest daughter to have Rosina in her name, therefore I have this name so to does my mum, my nan, my Grandma had this aswell and that is a far back as I know.

I do have a colleague at work whose first name is Rosina and she was quite impressed that I pronounced it correctly!

I think the name is definitely feminine.

It's my middle name too - also a tradition in my family for the eldest daughter! My great grandmother was Clara Rosina but used Rosina (shortened to Rose) as her given name. A beautiful name I think.
