Rebecca vs. Rebekah

Hi there, I have always wanted to call my daughter Rebekah/ Rebecca since I was very small. However, now I have the opportunity I’m totally stuck for which spelling. I feel biased toward Rebekah in one way, as I first loved the name as I was a huge fan of a beautiful Australian soap star - Rebekah Elmaloglou from Home and Away) BUT some people have suggested to me that the Rebekah spelling might appear to be a spelling mistake, or worse still a cre8ve choice (despite the fact this is the first biblical version of the name.) All that said I have no problem with the Rebecca spelling either. Your honest opinion s what I’d really like. MN suggestion welcome too. Thankyou. XxX

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.
