stay traditional vs. or not

Hi! My husband and I are expecting a son in August. We both had very common names as kids (Emily and Tyler). We really want to give our son a unique name, but we are worried he will be ridiculed and teased. My husband and I would name him Benjamin Charles (will not go by Ben) as a common name but love Barrett Charles (Charles is my father’s name). Should we stay with a traditional name or use our favorite name? Thanks for the help! ~Emily and Tyler Sandino

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
