Caterina/Catalina - I like Caterina much more than Catalina. Which do you prefer (just of those two)? What are your impressions of them?

Vittoria - Would you assume I unknowingly misspelled/mispronounced Victoria and proceed to say/write Victoria, or would you have already known Vittoria was a legitimate name on its' own? Alternatively, would you think I'd misspelled/mispronounced it, but go along my spelling and pronunciation anyway?

I prefer the soft 'l' or Catalina over the harsher 'r' or Caterina. I picture Caterina as a smart but hard person. She looks like your average American. Catalina would be sweet, kind and exotic looking.

I would know that Vittoria is a name in its own right (especially if her siblings were Dante and Niccolo!)

I love the name Vittoria. She was a main character in Dan Brown's book "Angels and Demons" so I knew that name was its own name and not a typo.

I like the soft "l" too of Catelina.

I've never seen Vittoria before but I would not assume you spelled Victoria wrong. Maybe just uniquely altered it.
I like Caterina but spelled with a K, Katerina. The nn Kat is cute.
Catalina does sound more exotic but it also sounds like a company that deals fruit or something. Basically my first thought was Chiquita. Only with cantaloupes or something. Sorry I am just so weirdddddd! Forgive my oddball brain.

Catalina, I love it! Always have. I would call her Lina.

Vittoria, I know is totally legit. So I'd go along with it, as your child's name.

Catalina makes me think of Spain, but geographically, not culturally. (I hope that made sense!).
Caterina is more my style. I do prefer spelling Katerina.
Vittoria, I have known one from Eastern Europe, it seems many people do know this is a "real" name!

I don't like Vittoria. Definitely would think it looks like a misspelled Victoria.
Catalina reminds me of the dressing. But i do like it better than Catarina. After the initial reminding of the dressing Catalina is very nice.

I like Catalina. I personally think people will assume Vittoria is Victoria misspelled
