nay, you must call me Rosalind  
AYLI, RSC (2013), 3.2:

I like that the RSC has been putting bits of scenes and speeches up on YouTube; they've been handy to link to on course websites and things. Someone who reblogged this on Tumblr called it hipster Shakespeare, which...yeah, but Pippa Nixon is rather darling here as Rosalind. And I like the idea that she's deliberately mispronouncing her own name, forcing Orlando to correct her partway through the scene.
