Tell People vs. Don’t Tell People vs. Please Read and Comment

I am set on certain names, but I already know that certain people, particularly my sister, won’t like them. I hate lying and I suck at it, so I can’t just be like, "uh yeah, I haven’t thought of a name yet", but I get so irritated when people try to talk me out of a name or suggest another one. I also can’t let them know that I’m hiding names witho ut ruffling any feathers, especially if I do tell my mom about my name’s like I want to so bad. What should I do? Also, would you look at the names in the first comment and see if I’m as good as I think I am at naming kids or if you can see why people give me grief?

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.
