Please Pair vs. Twin Names vs. Together

We have Christmas twins, well they are due December 21st. We do not know the sexes, so we want to have name combinations chosen for all possible variants. The other special thing about December is that my baby brother (4th), mother (14th), uncle (12th) and late (wonderful) grand father (13th) all have December birthdays, as well as my husband’s baby brother (22nd). My grandfather’s name was Paul (no middle name), Paul is also my husband’s middle name. We would love to use Paul, but if we end up with two boys, we don’t want to give one a namesake but not the other (there is literally no one else we’d name a child after). BUT I also have an uncle and 4 cousins (between both sides) with the first name Paul- yikes! So, we are also considering using Christmas/Winter-related names (my grandfather’s absolute favorite and it will always remind me of him) for them instead of Paul. Sorry for the novel, but we are getting so close and have no clue what we’re doing. Anyway, we’ve come up with a list of names we like and would love for your help creating pairs- B/G, B/B and G/G. Thank you so much for your help!

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.
