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*I like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.

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.
