A bad combination vs. for our little girl

Hello everyone. We haven’t decided on a name for our baby girl who will be here at the end of this month. My husband just told me he’d like to use Mary as her middle name after his mother. Although I only met his mother a few times before she died, I’m happy with using her namesake. BUT we have a problem. Our last name is Christmas. Something Mary Christmas. It sounds like Merry Christmas and our baby will be born in December. Do you think this matters as it’s only her middle name? Or should we used a variant of Mary? First name suggestions welcomed too. Thanks! Helena and Theodore

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.
