Too vs. Religious? vs. Okay?

Hi! We have a 9 yr old daughter name Meredith Elysse, who has always gone by Meri ever since she was a baby. I am now pregnant with a boy and we have always wanted a Jr. The thing is, my husbands name is Joseph Kelly Barnett, and he goes by Joe. That would make our children Meri and Joseph. They will be 10 years apart in age. Do you think that’s okay, considering the Bible characters Mary and Joseph, the earthly parents of Jesus Christ? My husband really wants a Jr and I’d love to give him that wish...

It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
