Is it okay? vs. What do you think?

We’re having twin girls in mid to late March, and we recently told friends and family that we had decided that their first names would be Brooke _____(?) and Rebekah Laurel and that we liked Bekah as a sometimes nickname for Rebekah. One of my friends briefly mentioned she thought it weird that one would get a nickname and the other wouldn’t. I dismissed it at the time (and she didn’t press it, so this isn’t "her fault"), but now I can’t stop thinking about it. *Is* it weird? Also, we’re still on the hunt for a middle name for Brooke. All ideas welcome (no boy names though!). Thanks so much, Heather

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.
