67. Congratulations and all the best for a safe, easy delivery and a healthy child!
Speaking as one who was given a common name (the most common for my year of birth, IIRC). I wouldn't have minded something less run-of-the-mill. There are many cultures in which individuals have one name for public use plus one or more secret names that are used only among kin or for religious purposes. That gives a good deal of flexibility.
