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

It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
