Pronunciation of Rosalia

[name]How[/name] do you pronounce [name]Rosalia[/name]?

Like [name]Rosa[/name] and [name]Leah[/name] put together: ro-sa-[name]LEE[/name]-a.


Wow, I was pronouncing it rose-AIL-ya
And I thought I saw somewhere that they pronounced it rose-uh-LIE-ah

Anybody see it as one of those two?

I pronounce it like this. There’s a town named [name]Rosalia[/name] in WA and that’s how it’s pronounced.

I used to pronounce it ro-ZAHL-ia, but then I learned the correct pronunciation is rosa-[name]LEE[/name]-a. I’ve never heard rose-AIL-ya or rosa-[name]LY[/name]-a. It’s a pretty name!

I think I would have said rose-uh-lee-uh but I also like the rose-AIL-ya prn too, or even rose-AIL-ee-uh.

It’s RosaLEEah. In Spanish, it’s spelled with an accent on the I to ensure that the I is stressed. Without the accent, it would be pronounced [name]RoSAlia[/name].

Something like ro-ZA-lee-uh.

I used to work with a French Canadian woman named [name]Rosalia[/name] and she pronounced it [name]Ros[/name]-uh-leah


me too.
