How can vs. I make vs. him understand?

My hubby and I are expecting our first child together: a baby girl. However he has girl triplets form his previous marriage whose names are: Lora Holly, Mora Polly and Nora Molly and he wants our baby girl to be named ’Cora Dolly’ to fit in with his girls. How can I talk him out of it and into giving our child a name of her own? I personally like Vittoria Ariadne but he refuses to discuss other names at all. Please help! Thanks!

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.
