I would have chosen a both option...but since I had to pick one, I picked Care-oh-line-ah. That's how I normally/usually hear/see it pronounce...unless it's pronounced the other way, which is usually for Latin, Hispanic, Spanish cultures. (I knew a girl from Spain and that's how here's was pronouned, that's the only time I hear it like that.) Hope this helps!

When i encounter the name i usually assume it's pronounced Care-oh-LINE-ah, but i very much prefer the Care-oh-LEEN-ah pronounciation.

I would guess Care-o-LEEN-a first.

Like the state with the traditional spelling.

I would only get the "lean" sound if it was spelled: Carolena.
