Foster vs. Adoption

Hi there! I know that this is a naming site, but it seems like it’s also a place to get advice for everything. I’m currently in the process of adopting a child in the foster system. And I was wondering if there were any moms on here that have also done that or adopted at all that could give some advice on getting him more comfortable? He is 7 and has been in foster care sine he was 2. He’s name is Maxton James (he’s birth name) which we are going to keep. Thanks in advance! -Emily, Jase and Max :)

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.
