What Do vs. You Think?

I always really disliked over the top weird baby names. I’d have quite a time wondering what on earth celebrities were thinking. Pilot Inspector? Audio Science? Apple and Moses? However, my husband loves it. He just wants one child with a name he likes and he promised he’ll never bother with it again. I said it was okay as long as he ran it past me first. So we were looking through a baby name book, looking as food names for baby names after reminding him about Apple Martin...So we found Apple, Cherry, Celery, Plum, and others...but there was one (to my surprise) that I actually liked. Lemon. Yes, i know it’s weird, but I just fell in love with the name. Not long after that we found out we were having a girl and we kept calling her Lemon, but then my sister found out and as much as she liked it, when she told my mom, everyone kept calling and wondering what on earth we were thinking. And I did say that he could have one name he liked and I actually like it, too, but...what do you think? Because I have no idea what to do. I know you must think we’re insane, but I’m really just looking for an opinion on Lemon. Thanks. Emily & Steven.

Genie's Mailbag

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
