Middle name to honor family vs. OR vs. Give kids their own name???

What do you think is better...to give kids a middle name that honors family OR giving them a name that is all their own??? I can’t decide. I love the idea of using family names and giving kids a sense of belonging and history, but I also think it’s nice when kids have a name that they don’t share with anyone. What do you think???

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.
