I love ___, but I don't love ___

Are there any names that you like/love that are very similar to names you don’t like? Names that are similar in sound, but are only different by a letter or two?

For example
I don’t like [name_f]Kinley[/name_f] or [name_f]Tinley[/name_f], but I like [name_u]Henley[/name_u]
I don’t like [name_f]Sue[/name_f], but I like [name_u]Rue[/name_u]
I don’t like [name_u]Jayden[/name_u] or [name_m]Rayden[/name_m], but I like [name_m]Cayden[/name_m] and [name_u]Hayden[/name_u]
I don’t like [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f], but I like [name_f]Eleanora[/name_f]
[name_f]My[/name_f] mom likes [name_f]Melody[/name_f], but she does not like [name_f]Elodie[/name_f] (I pronounce [name_f]Elodie[/name_f] like [name_f]Melody[/name_f] without the M. I know some say Ay-low-de)

Ooh, I love [name_u]Max[/name_u], but I don’t love [name_f]Maxine[/name_f], [name_u]Maxwell[/name_u], or [name_m]Maximilian[/name_m].

I love [name_u]August[/name_u], [name_m]Augustin[/name_m], [name_m]Augusten[/name_m] and [name_u]Augustine[/name_u] but don’t like [name_m]Augustus[/name_m] or [name_f]Augusta[/name_f].

(I think it’s because those are the only two I pronounce with stress on the GUS syllable, and I’m not a big fan of Gus).
