    Catherine or Katerina - Katerina is less common, but because flowery girl names that end in A are so common, it loses its unique appeal. Catherine may be old and classic, but the ending is not seen in many other names, and that "th" gives it nice spunk.

    Lavender or Lilac - as much as I love Lilac, I have a hard time getting it to sound like a name in my head. Lavender, however, is gorgeous and quirky.

    Mira or Maya - Maya is pretty but also very popular.

    Estella or Hester - Both are interesting literary references. Estella is prettier to my ears, though I do like Esther and Aster. Something about that H in Hester makes me feel like I'm wheezing and have a cold. I also think of the character in A Prayer for Owen Meany ("Hester the Molester")

    Ada or Ida - I have a feeling Ada is going to get VERY popular, but Ida won't, even though it has a much fresher sound. Plus, Ida B. Wells = awesome namesake.

    Angelina or Evangeline - Angelina makes me think of the chain of Mexican restaurants. And again with that A-ending. (I realise that's my own personal hang-up). Evangeline, though rising in popularity, is unique and gorgeous.

    Emmaleen or Emmeline - Emmeline is just slightly less intuitive for me. Even though I prefer Madeline to Madelyn, in this case, I prefer the long e sound.

    Claudia or Sylvia - Claudia is a bit dated to me. Sylvia has a better meaning, as well, and the V gives it nice spunk. If we were going Claudie vs. Sylvie, this might be a harder choice.

    Elena or Raina - People keep trying to convince me Elena is fresh, but I knew a lot growing up...or at least variations. Alaina, Elaine, etc etc.

    Georgia or Magnolia - Magnolia is a little too much name for my tastes.

    Marisol or Avalon - I've never been fond of the sound of Marisol, even though I love Marian epithets usually.
