Baby name vs. Help!! Please!

I’ve run into a little set back in the naming process. We find out next week if baby is a boy or girl. My husband and I have said for years and years if we ever have a daughter we want to name her Elliot and call her Elli for short. We’ve mentioned the name to a few people, family and close friends, and people either love it or are confused by it. It’s really put a damper on the whole baby naming process for me. How much does everyone else’s opinions matter? What should we do? Use what we’ve always loved or look for, what we feel, is second best? Thanks!

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.
