Carina or Calista?

DH and I have a terrible time agreeing on girl names, but have settled on these two as possibilities. Which do you prefer?  Middle name will either be Joy or June with possible nicknames or Cari or Cali. Not sure about those tho because I'm not a huge fan of nicknames.

    I like Calista June. I love the name Calista, but Carina is also a nice name.

    Tough choice.  I think they are both really pretty.

    I am giving Calista the slight edge, only because I prefer the NN Cali to Cari.

    Calista! Based on your spellings... I am definitely biased since my name is Karina. ;) And, I never had a nickname growing up-for me, I would have hated to be called Kari when I've been given such a beautiful name (even if you do Carina nn Cari). If you choose Carina, I wouldn't do a nickname... Unless it's a pet name of some sort.

    I vote Carina... but I have an irrational dislike of the name Calista. Too Ally McBeal to me, I guess (not a fan).

    What about Karina? For some reason, the C in Carina is throwing me off. I guess I've only seen it with a K. I prefer it to Calista.

    I like Carina.  Calista just reminds me of Calista Flockhart.

    This.
    I like Karina with a K and don't care for the nn. Calista is pretty too, also not fond of the nn in this case though.. What about the nn Calla with Calista?
