Stellan James vs. Stellan Everett

My husband and I are having a really hard time deciding on a middle name. We\’re having a boy and for years we\’ve loved the name Stellan. We think it pairs really nicely with our last name, Drake and we like that it\’s different. But my husband wants to use the family name, James for his middle name and for some reason the name isn\’t sitting well with me. I keep finding myself gravitating toward Everett. I don\’t know if I\’m just being difficult or if Im on to something so id really appreciate any feedback. By the way, our daughter\’s name is Avery Charlotte. And we\’re set on Stellan as a first name so please recommend middle names only. Thanks SO much!!

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.
