Help vs. Please

Hello! My husband and I are expecting a baby girl and I’m in a bit of a dilemma. My husband wants to use a Russian name as it is very important to him and his family and he absolutely loves the name Viktoriya. I don’t mind the name, however we are living in the United States and I’m just concerned about all the misspellings and don’t want us to seem like we were trying to be "unique". What should we do? Should we just keep it or should I try to find some other Russian names to suggest to him? Thank you! ~Celia

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.
