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

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
