change it vs. keep it

If you had a name picked out and you heard only negative feedback about it from everyone, would you heed the advice? Would you change the name? Or would you keep it and screw everyone else’s opinion? I want opinions/comments before I mention the name because that would kind of defeat the purpose of my poll. Thanks!

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.
