    Laurel or Lorelei

    Which of the two do you prefer and why?

    Laurel feels more earthy and mature, Lorelei is more whimsical and ethereal. I'm torn between the two.

    Lorelei... It looks more complex than Laurel and (you may not like this answer), I was a huge Gilmore Girls fan.
    Aside from the fandom, just name wise I do prefer complexity.


    As a teenager I wanted to name my child Lorraine but I hated the 'e' on the end and liked the 'au' better so I thought about butchering the spelling to Laurain. *ugh*

    Both are nice, but I prefer Laurel, because:

    a) I like Hazel, Opal, and that ends-in-l sound.
    b) I like nature names, as you can see from my two examples above, too.
    c) It's simpler to spell and I always brain-blank on whether it's Lorelai or Lorelei

    But Lorelei has the mermaid myth, which is interesting, and doesn't have "resting on your laurels" so there's that.

    Laurel.

    I LOVE Laurel (the plant) it's gorgeous so I have that association. Plus I think Laurel is more usable in real life.

    I prefer Laurel. It has a more earthy feel. Lorelei is still very associated with Gilmore Girls (at least to me). I like the sound that Laurel has, and I especially like that it sounds more unique, while still being a legitimate name.
