Fiona is one of my current favorite names... But sometimes I'm not sold on it, and I think it's because of the 'fee' part- the way it feels (ahrgh!) when I say it. I keep wanting to give it a 'th' sound instead, and perhaps may prefer Leona to Fiona, avoids the whole f problem.
I also love coraline so much, but whenever I say it aloud I sound waaaaay more southern than I am. Cora-laahhn. I guess I have the same accent when I say Caroline, but it doesn't bug me as much when I hear myself say that. (I might be placing the stress on the first syllable of Caroline more than with coraline).
Going off the hard c theme, I adore chloe until I say it aloud. The chl sound makes me feel like my throat is fleghmy (sp?).
I have trouble also with Audrey. Sometimes I say it odd-ry and sometimes odge-ry, and that bugs me. Not enough not to use the name (as is the case with all of the names actually...)

This is me with Katherine. It sounds so sweet in my head, and on paper it looks lovely and feminine, but out loud it just doesn't sound as nice.
