Love _____, But Not ______
Are their any names that you love, but hate a very similar name? Maybe you don't hate the name, but it just doesn't share the appeal of its counterpart. Maybe one has a negative connotation for you, but the other is lovely.
Do you have any examples of this?

Mine is a bit ridiculous. I LOVE Austen, but don't like Austin.
Austen to me feels distinguished, is a last-name for a first name (which I love), has the literary connotations, whereas Austin just feels like a cowboy name, there's Austin in Texas, and Austin Powers.
Silly stuff I know, but that's how I feel. Plus we pronounce them slightly differently, Austen is a bit softer.Josephine, wife to Robert
