Need vs. Advice vs. Please...

I’m having a little girl and have liked a name for awhile. It is not common on girls, I actually only know one girl with this name (she’s where I heard the name for the first time.). I’m scared everyone will not like it and it causes me to be self-conscious about the name. Should I name my daughter the name I like even though I am afraid everyone will hate it or try to find a new name? thanks for any advice.

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.
