Achilles Demetri vs. Achilles Bowen vs. Achilles ????

We really like the idea of Achilles for our son. However so far we’ve gotten a lot of negative feedback. Does it have too much of a negative association? Will he be teased? Unless there is a really good reason not to use it, we’ll probably go with it, but we’d like lots of opinions. If you don’t like it, can you suggest other names that fit our naming style? (uncommon but not made-up; memorable and unique). We’d love other middle name suggestions as well. Other names we have considered are Leonidas, Franco, & Westeros. But we don’t like them as much. We have identical twin girls named Odiara & Fifi(5). Thanks! - Jack & Seren

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.
