Choosing between two similar names

[name_m]How[/name_m] did you decide between two similar names?

Usually I just keep saying them, looking at them, thinking about associations and meaning, weigh up the pros and cons, and see if there’s anything that sways me. For example I was trying to choose between [name_f]Azura[/name_f] and Azula at one point, and decided I find Azula much nicer and easier to say out loud, so Azula it was. Sometimes I find that one name has an awesome meaning or association and that makes me love the name more, or vice versa. Or if I really can’t decide, I make a poll, and ask others to choose (with or without opinions) or flip a coin. Then if I’m happy with the result, that’s the name I go for, if not, then I know I like the other more. [name_f]Hope[/name_f] that helps, although I’m still really indecisive!
