Need vs. Help!

We need some help! I like really different (not necessarily unique but uncommon) names like Felix and Sebastian and my husband actually likes all the names I like (except a few). The issue is we don’t know if we should go down the path of more common names (we love Mason, Dominic, Jake, and Liam) or for more uncommon names (Felix, Sebastian, Riordan). My other issue is my dad just passed away and we want to include his middle name (Sean) but my husband also wants to have a child named after him! His name is Mathew. Is there like a different form of Mathew out there so we can still name him after my dad and my husband without having confusion whenever anyone calls the name Mat? The only alternatives I can think of are Mateo or Mathias and I don’t like those. Please help us!!

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
