number vs. three

We have two older children named Sebastian Johannes (Bastiaan, 9) and Catarina Leticia Mercedes (Catia, 6). We weren’t planning on having any more children after Catia, but we’re pregnant again. I am Portuguese, and my husband is Dutch and German. Bastiaan has a German name with a Dutch nickname, and Catia has a Portuguese (and Spanish) name. We weren’t planning on doing it that way, it just happened, but now we’re wondering if we should continue that for this baby, or if we should combine Portuguese, German, and Dutch names. What do you think? Thank you! ~Gisele

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.
