We're pretty sure if we have a girl we'd really like to name her Rosalind.

Rosalind is lovely! Honestly though, I say it 'Rose-uh-lind'. You don't have to call her a nn, but you might get the occasional Rosie or Roz from other people. Rosie is far more attractive imo, & that's part of the reason that I say it 'Rose-uh-lind'.

Hope this helps!

I'd say it ROZ-ah-lind, like Rosalind Carter or the Shakespearean character. I don't think it's too old-fashioned; I think it's quite sweet. I can't guarantee that people won't try to give her a nickname, or that she won't choose one for herself, but most people I know manage pretty well with using a full name and getting it to stick.
