Tessa - easy, love Tessa
Jenna or Gemma - both are okay, Gemma is a bit fresher, but a bit trendy
Chelsea or Kelsey - I don't really like either, but I'd pick Chelsea by a mile
Caroline - I don't like the spelling issues with Emmeline or that it's sort of a copy cat of popular Emily.
Halle or Haley - again, I don't really like either, but I guess Haley?
Delilah - Delaney is too trendy for me
Zoe or Wren - hard one! I like both, I'd probably end up going with Zoe, but Wren is so beautiful, but maybe more mn potential.
Reagan - don't like either, Reagan I guess, I prefer Regan
Calla or Calliope - both are about even for me, especially since one can be used as a nn for the other. Calliope is more gutsy! I'd probably go with Calla.
Mae - I just don't like Maeve, it reminds me of mauve and maven and is just too mouthy for my taste. Mae is pretty and fresh. I do like Mavis though
Genevieve - I like both, but Genevieve just has so many more nice options.
Miranda or Mira - same as Calla/Calliope. Though I do think first of Carmen Miranda. Neither is really my style, but Miranda is pretty.
Phoebe - really hate Payton, trendy, bad connotations, has the word 'pay' in it, bleh! Phoebe is lovely
Sophia - wow, very different. Seren isn't bad and Sophia is super popular, but Seren feels super trendy and sci-fi to me.
Kate - I like the simplicity of Kate, and I don't like the many spelling variations of Keira
Elise - I don't like either really, again, spelling variations bother me, but Elise is the more standard, so I guess I'd pick that
Noelle - love Noelle as you can see from my sig. Never even heard of Eira--I think it would get mistaken for Erin or Ira a lot
Violet - I have a negative association with Victoria, but it's not a bad name. Violet is also very pretty
Athena - I'd love to meet an Athena (or an Althea!), Thea is a bit nicknamey to me.
Jocelyn - I'm not a big fan of feminizations and though Josephine isn't bad, I prefer Jocelyn
Carys - I think it's prettier and less trendy looking
Lucy - love Lucy and Lindsay feels a tad dated to me since I knew so many in high school.Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin
