Traditionally vs. Northern

Hey all. I’m going to find out the sex of my baby tomorrow and it’s got me thinking a lot about names. I grew up in the northern part of the US (nj/ny area) and am very proud of my "Yankee" heritage. Lol. I live in the south these days but don’t want to give my child a traditionally "southern" name. So something like Mason or Cheyenne is out. Can you all please try to help me think of boy and girl names that are traditionally or conotatively more popular up north than they are down south? Thank you!

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.
