unusual names vs. usual names

Here’s the thing: I have an extremely common name. My Mum always had trouble at the playground, four kids would turn when she called my name. My hubby has an unique name and he doesn’t like it. People can’t spell it and he goes by his nickname today. So I just wanted to hear some opinions on popularity? Does it bother you? Did you choose a unique name? How does it work? We’ve just found out three months ago and don’t know the gender yet, but I’d like to have opinions before I can’t see the laptop behind my belly. Thank you!! xMary

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?
Baby Name Genie:
Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
