Favorite vs. Short vs. Names

We are expecting our first and we’re looking for short names! Our last name is very long, unusual, and somewhat complicated so we are looking for a short name (two syllables max.) that won’t cause too many issues in school/life. What are some of your favorite short names for both sexes? Thanks for your comments! ~David and Norah

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.
