    Which variant do you prefer?

    My husband and I disagree on which is better. Pronouncing them as spelled, traditionally. Hence the disagreement.

    Are you pronouncing them differently?

    (That's a better question.)
    ♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Gideon ◊ James ◊ Quentin ◊ Solomon ◊ Jasper
    ♀ | Helen ◊ Cora ◊ Anne ◊ Jane ◊ Caroline ◊ Catherine ◊ Gwen ◊ Georgia ◊ Elizabeth ◊ Lydia

    Torsten looks very strange to me, but I'm also not very familiar with the name period.
    Some current considerations:

    Sylvie Madeleine | Etta Rosalie | Miranda Sylvie | Margot Elspeth | Hazel Matilda
    Archer Daniel | Emmett Sebastian | Donovan Ezra | Leo Anderson | Lucian Matteo

    This doesn't help. Thomas isn't pronounced with the 'th' sound so technically Thorsten and Torsten could sound identical despite spelling.
