    Need feedback on a few "L" names

    We are planning to name our daughter an "L" name after my dad. But I just can't find one that I'm in love with. After much agonizing, our top choices are:

    - Leonie
    - Logan
    - Lenora (or Lenore)


    I think Leonie is my favorite, but I'm a little apprehensive about giving her a name that most people in the US are unfamiliar with. Sometimes I love it, but then I start to doubt whether it's too strange or not pretty enough.

    I like Logan too, but it took me a while to come around to it as a girl's name. Even now, it just sounds a little too harsh to me.

    My husband likes Lenora or Lenore (he loves the nn Leni), but I haven't been able to get on board with either. Just not a fan of the Nora sound and they both sound very old to me. And I think we could call Leonie Leni for short.

    Thoughts and feedback are appreciated!

    Leonie is by far my favorite; I live in the US Midwest and I don't think many people here would have problems saying it, and you could absolutely get Leni as a nickname with it.

    Leonie is my favorite of your options. I don't think there will be a lot of difficulty with pronunciation, but it is probably worth the occasional correction to use the name you love. Would spelling variations help to you to warm to some of the other names? I enjoy the Leonor spelling. It feels updated and cosmopolitan to me.

    Thanks! I actually suggested Leonor a couple months ago, but my husband didn't like it. (He said it made him think of Eeyore..)
