Lissa vs. other

I would love to give my daughter an African first name or middle name. I spent five years teaching English in Gambia and up until motherhood was the most special experience of my life. When I decided to leave due to pregnancy, a little girl in my cl[removed]uggested a few names if it was a girl. Lissa was one of them and is a supreme goddess. What do you think of this name for a first/middle name? Any other suggestions? Thanks~ Kay

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.
