Uuuuuummmm......Okay, just, fyi, I'm always conflicted with typing out pronunciations so here a key to a few things in case they aren't obvious.
I'll use the letter H, but obviously, it can be changed to any other letter.HAH- is the sound in laughing "haha" sound.
HA is the sound in "hat."
HYE is the same as the word "hi" or "high."I think the rest should make sense. Let me know if not.Also, these are only pronunciations I know. There are probably more to some of these names that I'm not familiar with.

wonderful series! - orginal query with some variancesThese may or may not be the same - and may or may not have different spellingsGeorgeJorge - it may or it may notDebora(h)DebraAlso similar names - but quite different forms - and most despise social confusionSusan & SuzanneCraig & Greg (Gregory) seem to be different, but are often confused due to auditory similarities; an easily understandable confusion exists between Craig & Greg - by the quick sonority of the first consonant: and how often are two people devoid of other surrounding sounds when speaking?
Sheila (pronounced Sheela) // Sheila (pronounced Shayla)
Richard Accent in the letter "I". Richard - accent on the letter 'a'. Daniel / Danielle either name can easily sound similar or different - or one spelling may retain the pronunciation of the other (popular) pronunciation.

Ignoring linguistic differences, there are a few I can think of:Karin — could be Karen or KAH-ren.
Sara — could be Sarah or SAH-rah

Well any that have English as their usage + another usage, really. So many!Just look at David for example.
