Popularity:1913
Origin:German
Meaning:gentle horse
Rosalina is a feminine name that whispers of sweet romance and sensational beauty. Though conjuring images of a tender rose, Rosaline is more accurately defined as a "gentle horse" thanks to its root in the German Rosalind. Before Shakespeare and Spenser infused dear Rosalind with the impression of a pretty flower, the name took its meaning from the German elements hros, "horse," and linde, "soft." Rosaline may have lost the allure of delicate petals, but it makes up for it by embracing the horse's many impressive qualities. Wild, powerful, and majestic, there is much beauty to be found in Rosaline, not least of all the capacity to be gentle when strength comes so readily.
