Naming vs. trouble

Hi everyone. My name is Angela and I’m expecting my first child with my fiancé, Luke. Luke already has a little boy with his ex-wife, 6-year-old Jack Owen. We are having a little girl and we would like her name to go well with Jack’s name. The trouble is, my naming style is completely different from Luke’s and his ex-wife’s. I like more uncommon names, such as Iris, Anneliese and Genevieve, whereas Luke prefers names like Olivia, Sophie and Emily which I think are nice but really overused. So here’s where you come in! Please suggest a name that we both might like, a "happy medium", if you will, as so far we are having a hard time agreeing on anything! Thanks so much. Angela, Luke and Jack

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.
