Hypatia vs. Famke

I really love the name Hypatia (Ee-pah-shah) for our daughter. I think it would be lucky to name her after such a role model. Its not my husband’s favorite of our list but he loves it too, his favorite is Famke. We are stuck on pronounciation, the correct way is Fahm-key but most of the people around us see it and say it Fahm-kuh depite correction and its growing on us, can using the pronounciation Fahm-kuh make us look ridiculous since it technically is not the correct way to pronounce it? We would like opinions on each, if you dont like it thats fine but please say why, since its really between these two. Suggestions welcome. Thanks

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?

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.
