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

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.
