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 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?
Baby Name Genie:
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.
