Ptolomey... The p is silent

Aidan? Just as you seem to like A names.
I have to say, Elliott is nice but not really unique, it’s fairly popular I think?

Not unique but old and rarely heard these days (or not by me, anyway!)

Desmond
Peter
Wilbur
Derrick

All under-5s I know so not unique but certainly unusual.

Old & unique - isn't that an Oxymoron?

You'd be pretty safe with Edred, Malcolm or Clarence, I'd say. Or Ethelbert.

Joking aside, though, there's a local 2 yr old 'Beckett'.

Quite like it.

May not necessarily be inevitable he'll get shortened to Beck (though that's quite cool, IMO)...everyone calls the above toddler only by his full name!
And is a name which ticks the box you mentioned, as it's old and English.

To clarify: the 'joking aside' referred to my 1st suggestion, not FawnDrench's list!

Emil is old fashioned but not popular and a lot like Elliot
