struggling vs. to vs. rename

My name’s Jamie and my wife’s name is Lydia. After struggling to conceive we decided to adopt. It just so happens that we’re adopting 4 at once. They’re siblings and we didn’t like the idea of them splitting up. They, like many, came from an abusive home and we were told that, in order to protect them, we would need to change their names. Their names are unusual so to speak and we live in England so they’re even more unusual here. They are still young so this name change would be adaptable. We’ll put their names and ages in the comment section and please can you help us change their names, we can’t even use their current fist names as middle names. Thank you - Jamie and Lydia

Genie's Mailbag

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.
