are addison and ryan vs. really unisex names?

After 2 years of trying, I am finally pregnant. My other children are named Addison Marie (10), and Ryan Jonathan (7). I really like the name Lauren Michelle but people are saying it doesn’t go with the unisex theme. When I named Addison, I thought it was a really girly name but now boys are starting to have that name and the same thing with Ryan. I think it’s annoying how every name is turning unisex. Do you think if have to stick with the "unisex" theme or is Lauren Michelle okay? Thanks. Sandy, Ty, Addy, and Ryan.

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.
