Question: vs. Is it a bad idea vs. to combine names?

My husband and I both had sisters who passed on when we were children. We are finally having a girl after three boys, and we would like to honor our sisters in our daughter’s name. My sister was Daniella, and his sister was JoyAnna. We have considered making both names our daughter’s middle names, but then we came up with Joyella (no, we don’t want to use Joella/Joelle). What do you think? Is this a bad idea? We thought it would be a nice way to honor them. We also like that it is unique and meaningful. Please comment and help us out! - The Greys

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.
