Slight Differences

I made a post about whether people liked [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] or [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] more and it got me thinking about other names with slight differences, [name_f]Alice[/name_f] or [name_u]Alix[/name_u], [name_f]Briony[/name_f] or [name_f]Bryony[/name_f], [name_u]Jonah[/name_u] or [name_m]Jonas[/name_m] etc.
Honestly I have trouble picking between a lot of these kinds of names, I was wondering if anyone else has some more examples of this and what they think of it, if that makes sense lol.

More examples could be…
[name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] vs [name_f]Alexandria[/name_f]
[name_f]Lily[/name_f] vs [name_f]Lila[/name_f] vs [name_f]Lilia[/name_f]
[name_m]Jacob[/name_m] vs [name_m]Jacoby[/name_m]
[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] vs [name_f]Emilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Theodosia[/name_f] vs [name_f]Theodora[/name_f]
[name_m]Lucas[/name_m] vs [name_m]Lucan[/name_m] vs [name_u]Luca[/name_u]
[name_u]Nova[/name_u] vs [name_f]Nola[/name_f]

Some of these feel more like variants on the same name, whereas some seem totally different to me (like [name_u]Jonah[/name_u] vs [name_m]Jonas[/name_m] seems very different, for some reason). I tend to have a favorite for each of these sets, but there are a few where I don’t have a preference (because I like/dislike both for the same reasons)
