    We can manipulate the spelling?? Yes!!

    Girls:

    Scarlett vs. Vivien -- I've never ever seen (read? it's a book?) Gone With the Wind, but I do know that it's the reason why Scarlett (with 2 T's) is so much more used than Scarlet (the color). I definitely prefer Scarlet, because I tend to prefer the more subtle, simple versions than dolled up and sissified. So, I also prefer Vivian. I would probably pick... Vivian. Scarlet(t) is nice, but I hear it around a lot more than Vivian. Along with that Scarlet just seems like it would be kind of a "bummer name" if it wasn't used on a redhead... haha

    Melanie vs. Olivia -- Melanie! I do like Melanie. Don't love it. But I do dislike Olivia quite a bit. It's pretty overused, and I knew a horrid Olivia...

    Ellen vs. Barbara -- Ellen! I really like Ellen. Barbara just reminds me of a store clerk or something, but Ellen is gorgeous and underused compared to all of those other el- names.

    Suellen vs. Evelyn -- Evelyn. Suellen just sounds like kind of a hybrid name to me. Not like Evelyn isn't the same way....

    Careen vs. Ann -- Careen. I don't love either, but Ann is toooooo simple, and Careen gives me the option of using "Reena" or "Reenie" as a nickname.

    Prissy vs. Butterfly -- Haha, wooww this is a hard decision... Prissy, I guess. She's going by Rissa or something... Butterfly doesn't even have any good nickname options... haha

    India vs. Alicia -- Alicia. I quite like Alicia. India is too much of a place-name for me. Alicia is nice and pretty underused.

    Ashley vs. Leslie -- haha, um, Leslie. You just wait, I'm going to pick that one for a boy too. :)

    Caroline vs. Leona -- Caroline! Leona reminds me too much of that girl that sings that "Bleeding Love" song that's REALLY annoying... haha, I really like Caroline.

    Belle vs. Ona -- Belle. Belle is so simple... Bella is annoying, yet I don't know how I can still like Belle... haha, but it's gorgeous. I'm assuming that Ona is the same as Ana (ahn-uh/on-uh), but it always reminds me of this game I used to play about saving money and one of the characters named was "Ana Budget" (on a budget...obviously)

    Emmy vs. Isabel -- Isabel. Emmy is a fine nickname, but not as a full name. Isabel is kind of popular, but I love that spelling (or Isobel). So much better than Isabelle. Simple is lovely. :)

    Bonnie vs. Cammie -- Bonnie!! My sister's roommate is named Boonie, and she's great. Cammie sounds like a nickname...that's kind of trendy. Bonnie is grand.

    Cathleen vs. Marcella -- Mm... Cathleen, but I don't mind either. I have a friend named Marcella ("Marci").

    Maybelle vs. Mary -- Maybelle. Very refreshing, and maple-y. :) I do love Mabel (and Sable!), but Mary is pretty overused...

    Dolly vs. Jane -- Jane. Dolly reminds me of a certain Ms. Parton.

    Guys:

    Rhett vs. Clark -- Umm... Rhett. I do like both, but I'll go for Rhett for no apparent reason. :P

    Ashley vs. Leslie -- Leslie!! yayyy!

    Gerald vs. Thomas -- Gerald. Thomas is my dad's name... we don't get along all that well, and it's slightly overused IMO.

    John vs. Howard -- Howard. John is too overused. Howie is cute... haha

    Sam vs. Everett -- Everett!! I love Everett. It's so soft, yet so masculine... Sam is...nickname-y and overused... haha

    Charles vs. Rand -- Charles. Rand... wow, never heard that, but I don't really like Randy, and Charlie is great.

    Brent vs. George -- Brent, even though it reminds me of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. :)

    Stuart vs. Fred -- Stuart. My grandmother is obsessed with that name. It's every one of my uncle's (and my dad's) middle names, she tried to convince my parents to name their son/my brother (Nathan) Stuart... she is oh so very obsessed with it, and I don't know why. Fred is too average, Frederick would be better, but I don't love it either.

    Frank vs. Caroll -- Caroll! haha, it reminds me of that monster from Where the Wild Things Are. Plus, Cary on a man is enchanting...

    Jonas vs. Victor -- Victor. I can't get past the Jonas Brothers...

    Peter vs. Eddie -- Peter, Eddie is too much of a Twilight-y nickname.

    Beau vs. Mickey -- Beau. Mickey is pretty nickname-y, and Beau is kind of attractive-sounding... I knew a great Bo. Very funny, sarcastic guy.

    This was amazing, even if I've never seen the movie/read the book. :)

  • Vivien - Scarlett is my least favorite of the 'tt' endings. I prefer Violet, Charlotte or Juliet. Vivien is lovely.

    Olivia - Just find it more feminine and pretty, though it is awfully common.

    Ellen - Both are nice though, and underused today.

    Evelyn - Growing in popularity, but very pretty though I prefer just Eve.

    Ann - Careen reminds me of careening out of control, don't like for a name

    Prissy - as a nickname though, for Priscilla.

    Alicia - India is too out there for me.

    Leslie - Ashley is so dated.

    Caroline - both are pretty, but I prefer Caroline

    Ona - Belle is cheesy trendy now.

    Isabel - I like Emmy as a nickname though, for Emmeline

    Bonnie - My godmother's name, I have on my list as Cordelia Bonnie

    Cathleen - cute spelling, Marcella is pretty too though

    Mary - simple but lovely, on my list as Mary Katherine (Mary Kate)

    Jane - Dolly reminds me of Dolly Parton

    Clark - I like both though!

    Leslie - a rare name that I like on both genders

    Thomas - so handsome, Gerald is also but not as much so as Thomas

    John - classic and simple, my cousin's name

    Everett - Rhett actually works as a nickname for Everett, which I think is cute

    Charles - my dad's name, very handsome

    George - underused today, very cute

    Fred - I prefer Frederick with Fred/Freddy as a nickname

    Victor - Jonas reminds me too much of the Jonas Brothers (i like Jonah)

    Peter - Eddie is also too much of a nickname, Peter is okay

    Beau - don't like Mickey (mickey mouse is what would come to everyone's mind)

    My favorites are Caroline and Charles.
