Multiple nicknames? vs. Normal?

My husband and I were on here the other day and had decided on the name Lenora Katherine. We were wondering if it’s weird for a baby to have multiple nicknames. After telling only a couple people our name choice(they loved it btw!) she already has about three diff nicknames. I have taken a liking to the nickname Nora-Kate, which is what will be on the nursery wall, but my husband has been calling her Nory, and my mom has been calling her Nora. Will that be too confusing for her? Or is it somewhat normal for a child to be called multiple nicknames? Thanks for your help!

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.
