Question about vs. Names being too close?

Hi, I recently came across the name Darcy and I’m starting to love it for a potential girl name! However, my mom’s name is Marci, so my question is: would Marci & Darcy sound silly even though they’re not siblings but grandma and granddaughter? Or would that be a good way to honor my mom by having similar names? Thanks in advance!

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.
