Autumn or Summer - I like both but Autumn seems more mature to me so it would be my pick
Holly or Molly - Holly for the same reason as Autumn
Julia or Julie - Julie for some reason I can't stand the name Julia
Leah or Leia - Leah it's more timeless and won't have pronouciation issues
Mallory or Valerie - Mallory, I think it is cute and underused Valerie reminds me of someone my mother's age
Elodie or Melody - I don't really like or dislike either
Laura,Lauren or Laurel - Love Laurel! Pretty and uncommon, the others seem dated to me even though Laura is a classic
Ian and Mark - they seem stronger to me

Autumn or Summer?
- Personally, I like Summer better. I just think it's a prettier name. Nothing against Autumn.
Holly or Molly?
- I absolutely love both. I can't choose. I've got a thing for M names, so I love Molly. Plus, I love the literary ties. But Holly sounds like it would age better to me. You can't go wrong either way!
Julia or Julie?
- Mm. Neither are favorites of mine, but I think both are good names - I'll go with Julia.
Leah or Leia?
- I like Leah better. Leia just makes me think of Star Wars!
Mallory or Valerie?
- I like Mallory better. (M <3). Valerie's not bad!
Elodie or Melody?
- Melody's better to me. I don't like Elodie as much for some reason!
Laura or Lauren or Laurel?
- Lauren. I'm not a huge fan of Laura and I know an absolute witch called Laurel.
Ian or Julian?
- I like Ian better. The "Jul" makes Julian seem a bit feminine to me.
Mark or Max?
- I like Mark better. I think it would age better.
I would just like to add that your naming style is absolutely flawless! I have seen a lot of people on this website with naming styles that just confuse me, but yours is lovely!

Autumn (but neither is my style)
Molly (also nms but more so than Holly, cuter I think)
Julia - much prettier IMO
Leah/Leia - torn. I like Leia bc it reminds me of Leila, but between the 2 I think I like Leah better.
Mallory - agree with pp, Valerie is too dated.
Elodie - love.
Lauren - I love this name.
Julian - on the soft side for me, but a very nice name nonetheless.
Max - who can resist Max.
Ian and Mark are just ok to me.Esme Cordelia | Fiona Elspeth | Gwyneth Rosalie | Madeleine Vesper | Phoebe Matilda | Sylvie Marigold
Arlo Vincent | Cato Benjamin | Griffin Elias | Lucian Mateo | Milo Sebastian | Rhys Donovan
Current B/G/B sibset crush: Owen, Lila, and Jude.
In reality, if I had two more boys they would be: Miles Anderson and Julian Byrne (family names).

Autumn- A much more preferable season and more sophisticated
Holly- Again, more sophisticated IMO, love the Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) reference. Molly seems very youthful, to the point of not being as fitting for a grown woman
Julia- a classic choice
Leah- most people will pronounce this one correctly
Valerie- Mallory seems very tied to the 80's in my mind. Valerie is more classic and I like the nicknames better.
Elodie- Again, Melody is an 80's relic for me. Elodie is more modern and interesting.
Laurel- love the nature reference and the fact that it's less common than Lauren these days
