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!!

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?

Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
