Nickname For vs. Nephew

Let’s say your sister who you love just had a baby who you love so much. She named him Joseph James and although you like James, you can’t stand Joseph. To make matters worse, she nicknamed him Joe, a name you have a hard time calling a little boy by. You want to give him a nickname, so you call him JJ, James, Jimmy, and Hudson (Hudson is your favorite name that your husband won’t let you use.) Your sister has a block against JJ and Hudson and doesn’t really appreciate you telling people that his name is anything but Joseph or Joe. What do you do?

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.
