Strong, no frills vs. girl name needed

My husband loves surnames and unisex names for our daughter while I prefer... girl names. I’m a firm believer in having a name and knowing what gender the person is. He doesn’t really care and almost prefers it the other way around! His favorite names are Tierney, Beckett and Bardot. His problem is he thinks my names are too frilly. I like Isabella, Elisabeth, Anabel. Can anyone think of names that are strong but not unisex and will please both of us?

Genie's Mailbag

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.
