Adoption vs. Names

I have a son Alexander (Andy) Ryan, 7. I was told I would not be able to have any more children after Andy, due to complications I had with him. When Andy was 3 we decided to adopt a baby girl from an abusive home. We named her Amelia(Emmi) Renee, 4. We are now in the process of adopting my DH’s twin niece and nephew. They are 3 months old. His sister could no longer care for them in a healthy way to say the least. We would like to change their names to match our children’s names. Currently their names are Ozias Maddox and Markie Oaklie. We have no interest in keeping their initials the way they are. Can you suggest boy and girl names that start with A and Middle initial R?

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.
