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.

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...

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.
