Too Close? vs. Yes, use Addison vs. No, "Ally" is fine

Hi! We have a daughter named Alexandra Rose whom we call Lexie. I very much want to name our second daughter Allyson Danielle, to be called Ally. Are Ally and Lexie okay as a sibling pair? My husband thinks people might be confused, since Ally is also a common nickname for Alexandra. Our other favorite name, tied with Allyson, is Addison; however, we dislike the nickname "Addie", so in the case that we choose this name, she won’t have a NN, she will just be Addison. WDYT?
Which baby name is best?
 Too Close?
 Yes, Use Addison
 No, "ally"

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.
