Please vs. Help vs. Clarify

Hello there! My husband and I are expecting baby number 3 (our second little boy) and need some clarification. Our two children are named Charles and Eleanor but go by Charlie and Ellie. Our family and many friends are saying we need to use another nickname ending in IE or LIE; the problem is though, we haven’t found any we love. Would it be a big deal to not use another name with a nickname ending in IE/LIE? Since he will be our last baby, would he feel "left out because his name isn’t like his sibling’s names"? Do you have any suggestions? Thanks! ~Rosemary

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.
