    Well, it depends on where you are.

    I've never met a Rupert in my life, but I know it's more popular in Britain. It would definitely be seen as unique and possibly old-fashioned in America, but not completely crazy.

    I personally love the name Lyra, but I can see it getting push back from a conservative family. I think it's one of those names that sounds very unfamiliar, but once you meet one it just clicks and sounds lovely.

    Matilda is similar to Rupert. It's definitely part of the vintage name trend so I can understand the older generation finding it very unpleasant. Similar to names our generation would find very dated--like Wanda or Stacy.

    From your extended list I really like Theo!

    I think they are all very nice choices, you can't really go wrong. Your family get used to it once the baby has arrived

    These names aren't too out there at all. Uncommon in the US, maybe, but familiar enough. I thought they were going to be made-up.

    I don't think they're too uncommon but I think you'll need to explain how to pronounce and spell Lyra a lot. But they're not so unusual that they're unusable just expect your family to complain for a while then get over it once they can't imagine baby Lyra or Rupert with any other name.
