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

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.
