Ashlyn or Imena - Neither is my style but I would choose Imena for its uniqueness as opposed to the trendy Ashlyn.
Alana or Concordia - Alana for its simplicity. I like the meaning of Concordia but it's a really heavy name to carry.
Bianca or Candace - Bianca for its Italian vibe. Candace seems "dated".
Cara or Ruth - Ruth for its Biblical history. I just want to say "mia" after Cara.
Claire or Niamh - I love both names but Niamh is less popular.
Deborah or Melissa - I don't either names but I chose Deborah for its Biblical connection. Both are "dated".
Evangeline or Nashira - Evangeline is a gorgeous name with a literary association.
Fallon or Raidah - Neither name is my style but Raidah is ok.
Honor or Briana - Neither is a fave of mine but Honor is slightly preferable.
Kira or Kalinda - Kira is pretty. I'm not a fan of "linda" endings.
Rosa or Rósín - This should be spelled Roisin which means "rose" in Gaelic.
Sybil or Cassandra - I love the vintage charm of Sybil. Cassandra is an old name but it sounds "dated".
Stella or Roxanna - I love both names but Roxanna has a more exotic vibe.
Willa or Wilhelmina - Willa for its literary chic. Wilhelmina is too clunky.
Adelaide or Alissa - Adelaide for its royal connection (Queen of England). Alissa is lispy.
Claudia or Gladys - Claudia isn't a fave of mine but it's certainly better than the "ugly sister" name of Gladys.All the best,

Overall, my taste is classic, traditional names. With a little bit of quirkiness thrown in. This will influence my choice
Ashlyn or Imena - only because I dislike the sound of Ashlyn
Alana or Concordia - Alana is pretty
Bianca or Candace - Candace sounds like "can dance". Ick.
Cara or Ruth - torn on this one. Chose Cara as its a favourite of mine today
Claire or Niamh - only as Niamh to me should be kept to Irish ancestry, and since I'm not, I would choose Claire.
Deborah or Melissa - cant choose. Really dislike both.
Evangeline or Nashira - dislike both!
Fallon or Raidah - again not my taste. Sorry!
Honor or Briana - blah!
Kira or Kalinda - ok, again not my taste but would go Kira
Rosa or Rósín - Rosa is lovely. A favourite of mine.
Sybil or Cassandra - dislike Cassie as nn so would go Sybil
Stella or Roxanna - Stella is cute!
Willa or Wilhelmina
Adelaide or Alissa - don't like this spelling of Alissa but Adelaide is where I was born! Torn so picked Adelaide.
Claudia or Gladys - Gladys is just too old for me. Claudia is just ok, but wouldn't choose it.Mummy to the gorgeous Alice Heather and the delicious Harry George
