Adalyss or Ellowyn -- Ellowyn, although I'd prefer that it be spelled Elowen

Olivet or Joliet -- Joliet. Olivet reminds me of the cemetery where my grandmother is buried.

Katia or Arie -- Katia

Copeland or Larsyn -- I dislike both of these but would probably go with Copeland and call her Ruth or something completely unrelated.

Carter or Elliott -- Carter. I know three female Carters so this name seems more unisex than Elliott.

Berkeley or Salem -- Berkeley. Salem just reminds me of the witch trials.

Selah or Sequoia -- Selah. Sequoia is too hippie.

Ivanka or Annika -- Annika

Gwendolen or Juniper -- Juniper. I like the image of the trees and I've never like the 'gw' sound.

Rhiannon or Margot -- Rhiannon

Meadow or Sunny -- Meadow

Maryn or Kenna -- Maryn, although I'd prefer it spelled Maren.

Sansa or Rivka -- Rivka. Sansa is too Game of Thrones.

Kris or Tammi -- Hmm. I guess Kris because it's sporty and I do like the name Christina.

Shawna or Lindsey -- Definitely Lindsey.

Hillary or Diana -- Diana

Maycee or Daryn -- Maycee. I don't like boys' names spelled cutely on girls.

Adalyss or Ellowyn - Adalyss - surprised I haven't seen this used more since a lot since a lot of "Addie" names are really big right now.

Olivet or Joliet - Joliet (I think it reminds me of the Blues Brothers :) ) It also sounds more like a real name, since it is a place name.

Katia or Arie - Katia - I actually really like this name, both as a nickname for Katherine based names and on its own.

Copeland or Larsyn - Larsyn - Neither are that good but Copeland sounds like a distinctly boy's name.

Carter or Elliott - Carter - I like both better as boys names but Carter I think works better for girls.

Berkeley or Salem - Berkeley - Naming your kid Salem will just get them teased.

Selah or Sequoia - Sequoia - Selah kind of sounds like "sellout" without the "t" to me.

Ivanka or Annika - Annika - I've actually known a couple nice girls named Annika or some close spelling. I like "Ivana" though.

Gwendolen or Juniper - Juniper - I think I like Gwendolyn spelled with the "y" better. Juniper is cute and can shorten to "June" if she doesn't like Juniper.

Rhiannon or Margot - Margot - Tough call, since I like them both, but gonna go with Margot though. But everyone's going to miss that "t" :(.

Meadow or Sunny - Sunny - Both are cute though.

Maryn or Kenna - Kenna - Weirdly, I loathe McKenna, but I think Kenna's just darling.

Sansa or Rivka - Sansa - I'm surprised Sansa hasn't risen as much as other Game of Thrones names, especially since it kind of sounds like Sarah and Sandy and Sasha.

Kris or Tammi - Tammi - I kind of have a soft spot for those mid-century nickname names, like Cindy, Sandy, Judy, Jan, etc.

Shawna or Lindsey - Shawna - I feel like every Lindsey I've ever known has been an awful person. I like the spelling "Shauna" better though, feels more natural.

Hillary or Diana - Diana - With Diana, you can always say you named her after the Greek goddess Diana if she's not a huge fan of Princess Di. With Hillary, your daughter's going to have to be a Democrat.

Maycee or Daryn - Maycee - Daryn sounds like a boy's name, even with that spelling. "Macy" looks much cleaner though.

I'll try that bracket thing a lot of other similar games use -

Adalyss or Joliet - Joliet, easily.

Katia or Larsyn - Katia, another easy one.

Carter or Berkely - I like neither, but Carter's more of a name.

Sequoia or Annika - Easily Annika.

Juniper or Margot - Going with Margot.

Sunny or Kenna - I'll go with Sunny.

Sansa or Tammi - A strange combo. Easily Tammi though.

Shawna or Diana or Maycee - Diana - Is Diana really that rare a name?

----

Joliet or Katia - Katia, easily.

Carter or Annika - Do I even need to say Annika?

Margot or Sunny - A tough one, but I'll go with Margot.

Tammi or Diana - You know, I'll go with Tammi.

----

Katia or Annika - Katia

Margot or Tammi - Tammi

----

Katia or Tammi - Going to go with Katia for the winner!

Ellowyn-I just like the way it sounds

Joliet-perfect combination of Shakespeare and Hollywood

Katia-I like the Nordic feel

Larsyn-Copeland sounds like a boys' name.

Carter-reminds me of the Princess Protection Program

Salem-very historical

Selah-strange associations with Sequoia

Annika-couldn't live with the Trump associations, and Annika is the name of a Barbie princess.

Juniper-sounds very fresh and nature-y

Margot-sounds very elegant, and Rhiannon is just so complicated

Meadow-Sunny is a little too bright for my taste

Maryn-Kenna doesn't sound like an entire name

Rivka-sounds more authentic than Sansa

Tammi-Kris is too masculine

Lindsey-it's very pretty and sweet

Diana-Princess Diana can never have enough namesakes

Maycee-cool spelling, and Daryn is a boys' name

Ellowyn, but I prefer Elowen

Joliet, because you could use the nickname Jolie

Katia!

Copeland. Larsyn is Larson with a 'y'

Elliott, but for a girl I would use Elliot

Berkeley, but I dislike them both

Selah is gorgeous

Annika. Ivanka with always be assosiated with the Fisrt Lady

Gwendolen. Juno would win though, if that was an option

Margot, easy! 

Sunny. Meadow is odd to me.

Maryn, my neice's name

Sansa is intriging.

Kris, but really neither.

Shawna, but spelt Seana

Diana is beautiful

Daryn, but Daria is better.
