I have an Irish name. I live in Australia where it is unfamiliar. People sometimes struggle with either spelling or pronunciation. This doesn't bother me; I don't care how they spell or pronounce it. If it bothers them - and it usually doesn't - that's their problem, not mine.
However, if the OP's little bundle of joy, when grown up, finds himself in a position where people are puzzled by the spelling or pronunciation of his name and this bothers him, he can adopt a modified version of his name, or change his name; simples.
Since nobody knows what his future will be, we can't future-proof him against the risk of finding himself dissatisfied with his name.
OP, name the child what you want to name the child. If at some point in the future they don't like it, they can modify or change it. Registering them with a formal given name, and using an informal variant in practice, gives them options in that regard without the need for deed polls and suchlike, so you might want to consider that approach.
