I hate to do this, but in reading HoME and some other reasources, I found what lindil was talking about. The fact that Legolas of Gondolin was not (plausibly) the same as Legolas of Greenwood (Mirkwood).

So I therefore withdraw my origional vote. I must go with the Quenya, for it is closest to Noldorin that you can get, and there is no way, with that name, that you can confuse FoG Legolas with LotR Legolas. Laegolas and Laigolas seem really close, in spelling, to the Legolas of Mirkwood. That is so there is no confusion in the transition or comparison of the two.
