Raphaela or Bethan- Raphaela... Regal, interesting, and has great nns...
Claire or Sophie- Claire... Sophie's been done to death
Lauren or Caitlin- Neither... Both bring me back to the 90s.
Emma or Lucy- Emma... This was a childhood fav of mine, that I just don't see as usable anymore due to its popularity. Lucy reminds me of "I Love Lucy"
Maybelline or Julietta- Neither... Maybelline reminds me of the makeup. Juliet and all varients just make me feel sad, due to her death in "Romeo and Juliet".
Ella or Molly- Molly... My brother almost used Ella, until he realized with the last name it would become Ellafant, or elephant. Now I only think 'elephant'.
Sharon or Lesley- Sharon... They're both dated, but I have a good friend (Chinese) named Sharon, so it seems more usable to me.
Helen or Ruth- Helen... Helen reminds me of mythology. Ruth... it just doesn't have a nice sound.
Sally or Alison- Neither.
Julia or Jessica- Julia... Jessica was done to death on us 80s babies.
Kathryn or Danielle- Danielle... I've known so many Katherines (and all variants), but only a handful of Danielles. Plus, I hate unnecessary y's.
Kay or Sarah- Kay... Sarah's too common. However, I'd choose Sariah/ Soraya over Kay.
Bliss or Sky- Bliss... I'm not big on it sounding like 'blister', but Sky is too hippie...
Georgia or Alissa- Georgia... It's classic and mature, and I love the nns. Alissa is just mediocre to me.
Saskia or Natalie- Saskia... This name's really grown on me. I think I'd prefer Natalia over Saskia, but I love Saskia's bold uniqueness.
Colette or Victorine- Colette... I love -ette names... they feel like they strike the perfect balance between mature and cute.
Carla or Nina- Carla... I have a friend by this name. Nina makes me think of the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.
Holly or April- April... Bad association with Holly.
Phoebe or Lydia- Lydia... So classy. I had this on my list through childhood, as I knew a Lydia. Lately it's skyrocketed, though. :P
Catharina or Tuana- Catharina... Tuana is way too out there...
Jocelyn or Grace- Grace... Although it's blahhhh it has a nice meaning. I've never known a nice Jocelyn, so it's not usable to me...
Laura or Emily- Emily... both are really 80s, but I like Em- names a lot. However, Laurel would beat Emily.
Maisie or Eva- Eva... It's more grown-up. Although I love Maisie, I think it's better as a nickname or middle name.
Autumn or Hayley- Autumn... I think of vibrant leaves and crisp air... pumpkin patches, Halloweén, and apple cider. Hayley just makes me think of a stuck up girl from elementary school.
Lacianna or Pearl- Pearl... Short, to the point, and cute. Also, I love Pearl Buck.INTP Anthropologist Living in the centre of China, married to a Persian, and just enjoying a completely unpredictable life
