My name is Róisín. Living in the US, when people hear/see my name they're usually like...huh?? I don't blame them. If it weren't my name, I probably wouldn't know how to pronounce it either. Sometimes it gets annoying having to correct people calling me Roy-sin. This is a big problem when I go to Pinkberry. They spell my name wrong on the sticker, and they say it wrong, and then my friends laugh at me. But what am I going to do? This one time in Dublin, I was at Topshop and I was having the saleslady put something on hold for me. She asked for my name. No strange reaction. She spelled it properly on the little paper thingy. It was awesome. Well, I'm pretty much rambling now, so I should probably stop.
Oh, and if anyone is reading this, thinking...So how do you say it? : It's Row-Sheen.
Anywhoo, this one time I was googling myself (you know you've done it too) and obviously not much came up, but the wonderful people at Google inadvertently led me to Róisín Murphy. I looked at a few of her pictures and read her bio and I was intrigued. Then I listened to her music and it was all over. Fierce fashion, amazing music, and a fun, quirky personality? And a super cool name to boot! Count me in!
Just look at this. How many people can pull this off? Honestly.
This girl has more coolness in her left earlobe than I do in my entire body.
