Vermina vs. okay vs. no way

We told our 6-year-old, Violet, that she could help pick out a name for her baby sister. She picked her favorite computer game character, the pirate rat Vermina. Yeah, like Vermin-ah. Anyway, it’s kinda growing on us. It’s cute, sounds a little like Minerva (which we were considering in honor of my husband’s aunt)...but is it crazy?
Which baby name is best?

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.
