Substitute vs. Names

Hi! My husband and I loved the name Emmeline "Emmy" for our second princess; however it’s a bit too close with her big sister’s name, Eleanor "Ellie". We don’t want to start a theme and we don’t want the names to be too close, do you have any names that are similar in style to Emmeline/Emmy but don’t start with E? Her middle name will be Andrée, after her grandmother. Thank you and happy holidays! ~Sarah

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.
