Different name vs. Than Nora

My mother insists that my husband and I name our daughter Nora or Norine after her mother. My grandma was named Norine but was called Nora. I love my Grammy but hate the name. My mom said she would be disappointed if we don’t use it. I was thinking maybe Nova as a middle name, but idk if that would be close enough to Nora. We are deciding between Bethany or Kendall for her fn. please help with some creative ideas! Btw her middle name was Ethel, so using her mn is out too :)

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.
