    As someone who had a K-K name before I was married I can confirm it's nothing to be worried about. It really never came up at all, and that was even with same beginning initials vs just the same beginning sound. I think you should go with Cora.

    I really like both Cora and Nola--Lexie just feels flat and uninteresting compared to the other two. I like Magnolia slightly better overall but Cora better with Lena (I agree with previous posters that Lena and Nola is a bit confusing.) You can't go wrong with either choice; they're both lovely.

    I think Cora stylistically works best with Eleanor/Lena... But I voted for Magnolia. I think it's such a pretty and underused gem, especially with the nickname of Nola. Alexandra is great, too, but I'm not a fan of Lexie. It's just too cutesy for my tastes.

    Alexandra ... Lexie, Ally, Alex, ... So many great choices from one name. Alexandra is a strong name but also classic.

    Agreed. And Lena and Cora are adorable together!

    (By the way, can I just say how utterly excited I am to know there's a little Eleanor out there who goes by Lena? I am in love with the idea myself, but I'd never really come across it, so I thought most people felt it was too far-fetched!)
