Lorelei, but barely. They're both beautiful, but I agree with your assessment that Laurel is earthy and mature, while Lorelei is ethereal whimsy, and I prefer names with some magic. Lorelei is just crashing with magic. It's one of those names I may just fall madly in love with and use for a daughter someday. Besides, if you truly can't decide, just have a Lorelei who gets called Lorel/Laurel.Cordelia Eilonwy Snow | Evadne Snow | Felicity Astra Wildrose | Gwenna Moon | Lorelei Ondine | Octavia Eowyn Sol

I adore Lorelei (currently one of my top three girls names).
I wouldn't mess with the spelling of it unless you want to go with the original Loreley instead.
It differentiates it from GG and refers more directly to the Rhein-sirens.
(PP's suggestion of Laurelei just feels messy to me. Adding in the Laurel connection - sort of messes with the meaning of both to me. Neither really shines through as it battle the other for dominance).EXPECTING OUR FIRST, A GIRL, IN MAY 2016.
