Some names for which a quick net search turns up conflicting results.
[name]Carolyn[/name] vs. [name]Caroline[/name] - My father says them to rhyme with pin and wine respectively. I say both like pin. Nameberry lists [name]Carolyn[/name] as a phonetic spelling of [name]Caroline[/name], suggesting they’re the same.
[name]Rosalind[/name] - Is it rose or rawz, and is the D silent? I say rose-a-lind.
[name]Rosaline[/name] vs. [name]Rosalyn[/name] - Again, is there a difference? [name]Do[/name] either or both sound like [name]Rosalind[/name]? (You can guess what I say.)
And thus, all -line vs. -lyn names.
[name]Audrey[/name] - I’ve mentioned this before. I know some people say long O-dree, some say Aw-dree, and a few (including myself) say Aw-dray. My question is, is it correct that this is a regional difference, with British and presumably French saying O-dree, Americans saying Aw-dree, and some Canadians saying Aw-dray? Yes, I’m Canadian.
[name]Tamsin[/name] - with an S or Z sound?
