What do you do with boys? vs. Ahhhh! vs. Need help!

Okay, so my name is Christine and my DH is Patrick. We have 4 daughters: Kathleen who goes by Kate (13) Isabelle (10), Lucy (6) and Evelyn (6). Well, we weren’t planning on 5 kids, but here we are. We were stunned when they told us our 5th was a boy! We are at a complete loss here. We can’t agree on a nursery theme, his name, what toys to get, clothes, etc. I am just hardwired for little girls. My husband knows what boys like, but all of those things are stuff he can’t to until at least kindergarten like sports, dirt, running etc. So, we thought we would get some outside help. What did you buy for your newborn baby boy? We have the basics: white crib, porta crib, diapers, carseat. But, what about just for boys? What clothes? What theme would be cute for his room? I like a nautical theme, but the husand thinks cars and trucks would be cooler. All my kids came early, and I am 38 weeks now. As for a name, we like Owen, Andrew, Ryan & Elliot. Anyways, I would love some advice, plus what names you like. Thank you! You are our life savers. Hopefully I will have time to get everything done before little boy gets here :) -Christine

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.
