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...

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.
