Which do you prefer? Which is more feminine? Which is more modern?

I think Calista is more feminine. Cambria is pretty but definitely more modern... it doesn't strike me as a old fashined name at all.

I LOVE both!! I don't know which one I prefer... I'd probably use Cambria just because Calista is really close to my name.

I definitely prefer Calista and find it more feminine. They both sound modern to me.

I prefer Cambria - I'm not a fan of Calista. They both seem feminine, and neither one seems especially modern:

Calista is the feminine form of Callistus, which is old Latin for "most beautiful."

Cambria is what the Welsh call Wales (don't ask me how or why I know that, because I couldn't tell you)

More Feminine (by just a smidge): Calista
More Modern: Cambria

I prefer Cambria, but Calista is beautiful too.

I think Calista is more feminine, where Cambria is more modern. I think they are both pretty names, yet I prefer Calista over Cambria except in terms of nicknames...I like Cam/Cami/etc. over Cali/e

I love Cambria (ever since Christen told me of the name!). Calista isn't really my style. I think Cambria is more modern
