    I'm not fond of either of the names, I do however prefer the sound of Imogen (but Imogene looks more complete in a way).

    Like others, I'm just not fond of the -jeen- sound. There are very few names with that sound I can tolerate, Eugenie being the only one that comes to mind. Looking some more, Regina is the only other one, and I only like it because of Regina Spektor.

    However, I'm not fond of Imogen either, even though I prefer it to Imogene. It sounds very sharp to me, piercing.

    I love Imogene! Perhaps it has something to do with the beloved children's storybook, Imogene's antlers. Maybe not the best association for most people but I always thought of an extremely imaginative little girl whenever I read it as a kid.
    Imogen has no history with me and I think it sounds a little abrupt.

    Imogene was born from mispronunciation Imogen, that's why I don't like it.
