Carla looks prettier to me, and yet, Karlene and Karlie are so beautiful, and I prefer Karl to Carl for boys. I like Carly better than Carlie, but Karlie better than Karly...!

Either version is nice. I just think K names are more popular right now. I prefer the C beginning but I do like it with a K.
