I like uncommon names, but I'll have to admit that neither one is really rocking my boat.

I agree that Destiny is the better choice of the two, but only spelled that way, IMO.

okay, I really don't mean to be rude, but they both sound like strippers. Especially with the "i" spellings. I like Leemaree, But Destani Leemaree is too much. And Fancy sounds more like a dog name than a child. I don't mean to be harsh, I just don't like them.

aw, I am with the others when I say that these are not really my style so it is hard for me to vote.
