User comments for Roslyn (Pronunciation Only)

It is actually pronounced Roz-Lynn. It is my name so I know how to pronounce it.

The pronunciation of Roslyn is often shown on name websites as RAHZ-lin, which tends to be the American pronunciation. This is quite a harsh pronunciation of the name and differs noticeably from the way it is pronounced elsewhere, which is a softer, more accurate pronunciation of ROS-lin.

My name is Roslyn and I always notice the harsher pronunciation by Americans, where the 's' becomes a 'z' and the 'ro' becomes 'rah'.

The softer pronunciation is also closer to the name Rosalind, which Roslyn derives from. Think rose, not 'rahz'.
