Old Fashioned vs. But Not vs. Too Formal

Hi! We are expecting our first child and we’re a little stuck. We want something that is old fashioned/classic and will age well, but we don’t want anything that sounds overly formal, if that makes any sense. We really need suggestions for both genders (only first names, though), please help! Thank you!

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.
