Luckily I won't have to face this for a few more years. Our plan when the time comes is to not announce the name until after the baby is born. This way pesky relatives won't be able to do anything because it will be final

I didn't have any pressure to do so from my family, but it was an expectation that we name out first son after dh and his dad. I had to sort of push to get my way with that one. I love using family names but we put them in the middle
For our kids they have 2 middle names...a first name that we love and think fits them, a "strech" family name in the middle (using a connection to a family name but not exact-that way we can pick what we love Using rearranged letters, same meanings, birth month, surname, occupation name, etc.) and the 2nd family name is after family.

I dont' have kids yet nor am I pregnant but since my cousin's kept with the family tradition of family themed mn's (all of my cousins' and second cousins) I am definitely expected to do so as well. But, lucky for me I love this tradition and I'm not limited to a name that already exists in the family, just one from a very particular culture. (Kinda like all mn have to be Swedish or old-school Irish).
Maybe you can find something that you like that honors the spirit of your family without having to use actual names you don't absolutely adore....if my husbands has no vote, then....
