Oliver Hans vs. Oliver Alan vs. Oliver Mathison

Hi! We have decided on a first name for our son, and we’re trying to decide on a middle name. We like the idea of having a name that means something to us ("Hans" is meaningful for multiple reasons, including that it’s a common name in Iceland, where we honeymooned; "Alan" and "Mathison" are the first and middle names of Alan Mathison Turing, a computer scientist whom Jonathan admires). However, we’re open to suggestions. By the way, we pronounce "Hans" as "Hahnz." Thanks for your help! - Michelle and Jonathan

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?
Baby Name Genie:
Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
