    I don't see a difference between the two. The extra e doesn't affect pronunciation or appearance for me. Not a fan of the name.

    But also, the creation of Imogen was itself a typo. I believe the original was Innogen.

    I don't think that natural evolution of names is so bad. Many names have gone through this at some point.

    I honestly don't like either, they seem very guttural to me and sound a bit like screwed up "imagine"

    If you want that sound I'd use Emma-Jean
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

    Imogene makes me think of the bratty kid in The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. I think Imogen is lovely, though.

    Personally, I hate hyphens and while I love Imogen/Imogene, I detest Emma.
