Isabel -Isabelle is gilding the lily.
Claire -looks more complete
Catherine -Kathryn seems dumbed-down
Kay -the E is unnecessary
Evelyn (though I don't like it at all) -Aveline reminds me of javelinas
Sarah -I hate the Sara spelling for some reason.
Mark -Marc just looks weird to me.
Luke -Ditto for Luc.
Jack -Jaques is misspelled. If you mean Jacques, I just don't like it.
Neve -Niahm is misspelled too. If you mean Niamh, I'd prefer that over Neve.
Sean -see Catherine
I'd say these differently -- Celine is suh-LEEN and Selene is suh-LEE-nee. I prefer Celine.
Christina -Kristina looks tryndee and spiky
Alan -Allen seems surnamey
