Marie-Claude Natalie vs. Yes vs. No

We want to use the name Marie-Claude Natalie for our daughter (who us due on or around Christmas) but are worried about the meanings of Marie (bitter, according to most) and Claude (lame). Should we use Marie-Claude anyway because she is being named after relatives or use something else? Marie will definitely stay, but Claude we are willing to change. My husband and I both have lots of French roots so please if you suggest something make sure its apart of that culture. We have also looked at Marie-Belle. Christine & Matt.

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.
