Should I Name a vs. Child After My Dad or vs. His Family

I am very close to my mom and her side of the family. Also my mom and her relatives have a lot of good, classy names. I’ve thought about naming kids after some of them, specifically after my mom angrandparents, but I am afraid my dad will be offended that I didn’t name one after him or any of his relatives. My dad and his relatives aren’t the greatest people in the world and for the most part, their names are all ugly. WDYT?

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.
