Fiona or Leona?

In regards to Leona, do you think it goes nicely with Blaise & Avenley?

I much prefer Fiona. But then, it does make me think of Shrek.

I don't care for Leona with Blaise and Avenley. It just seems to be a different style of name. It's not superbad or really obvious though. And, I think Fiona goes better in your sibset.

I really love both Fiona and Leona. Leona is my favorite out of the two but I think either fit well into your sibset.

I like Fiona, besides the Shrek reference. Leona just seems kinda old to me... Like I've heard it too many times to think it's awesome.

But people will get over the reference. Such as if I'm having a boy his name will be Roghan and my best friend chanted "Rogain" like the men's hair product. The sad thing is one of my other besties found out she is having a boy and is naming him Seth... =/ I was like I called Roghan before you even thought of Seth!!

I prefer Leona but both are beautiful names. I think Leona goes great with Blaise, but not as well with Avenley.

I prefer Leona, although Fiona is pretty too. I'm not sure how well it goes with Blaise and Avenley, though. It just seems a bit out of place to me.

I like both, but I do think they have very different feels. Fiona is a sweet, dainty sort of name, and Leona is rather soulful and bluesy.

Either one works well.
