Getting teased vs. help!

I overheard mothers talking about children’s names in the preschool my son goes to. They said his name sounded "teen-momish". I found that offensive and obsurd. I am a teen mother but I strived to find a suitable name for my son. Does Landen Ryan really sound "teen-momish"? Help I’m freaking out!

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.
