    Phoebe, hands down. It's a lovely looking name with wonderful history, I should like it but that repeating ee-ee sound is just nails on a chalkboard to me.

    Imogen-It just sounds very boring to me.

    I totally agree with this. In fact, any name with a double 'r' sound I struggle with. I work with a guy called Rory and I actually have to consciously think about it every time I say his name.

    I feel the same way about Cassia!

    Other names that I really like in print but am not smitten with out loud for some reason or other:

    Leonie-The most frustrating one because it's one of my favorites! It just sounds so strange and clumsy to me when I say it.
    Ottilie-Same as with Leonie.
    Ezekiel-Sounds like I'm struggling.
    Bastien-The only way I like it pronounced is the French way but I don't speak French regularly.
    Lucien- Really like it but can only think and hear "Lucy" when I say it out loud.

    Darcy, Quentin, Elliott, James, Marianne, Josephine, Henrietta
    Robin, Hazel
    Claire
    August, Hawk, Sydney, Primrose, Isis, Lavender

    Genevieve and Guinevere. Such beautiful names on paper, even in my head, but when I try to say them out loud or I hear someone else saying it out loud... it's just not as pretty. It also depends on the pronunciation and individual accent, I guess. From my favourites, Taran and Vega actually sound better in my head or on paper rather than said out loud.
    Marta Aleksandra. 22.

    ♂ Noel * Frederick * Claude * Edgar * Bernard * Louis * Tristan * Heath *
