Like others, I'm just not fond of the -jeen- sound. There are very few names with that sound I can tolerate, Eugenie being the only one that comes to mind. Looking some more, Regina is the only other one, and I only like it because of Regina Spektor.
However, I'm not fond of Imogen either, even though I prefer it to Imogene. It sounds very sharp to me, piercing.Åshild / Norwegian / 24 / Name Collector / Work: Daycare and the Library / Love to bake, read and listen to music

I love Imogene! Perhaps it has something to do with the beloved children's storybook, Imogene's antlers. Maybe not the best association for most people but I always thought of an extremely imaginative little girl whenever I read it as a kid.
Imogen has no history with me and I think it sounds a little abrupt.Mama of two beautiful boys!
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
