opinions vs. please

My husband and I are expecting our first child, and we’ve started pulling together a list of names. Right now one of our top names is Peyton, but we don’t know if we like it better for a girl or a boy. We’re leaning slightly towards boy, but we’re also concerned that it might be too popular for girls to use on a boy. We’re not opposed to unisex names, but we don’t want to use something that everyone associates with a girl. What do you think? Could you please also suggest a few names (say five) for each gender? Thank you! ~Caroline

Genie's Mailbag

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.
