Name debate

This is probably semi dangerous because people have LOTS of opinions about names, but I need to crowd source this a bit. I really can't decide on a name for this little nugget of a boy. I THINK we are down to two name options, but want to see if anyone can think of bad nicknames, weird things with initials, etc. that my husband and I might not be thinking of at all.

For reference our last name is Perez. Our two children are Ellison (nickname Elle) Rose and Enzo Antonio. It is a COMPLETE coincidence that their names both start with E. We just liked the names, but we get asked ALL.THE.TIME if we will be sticking with an "E" theme. Our daughter's middle name is my grandma's first name and our son's middle name is my husband's middle name. I like family names for middle names. Just for background... Oh I'm Erica and my husband is Adam.

Two front runners:
Niko/Nico Lee --> Lee is MY middle name. I feel like this flows pretty well with his brother's names. Enzo and Niko/Nico?

Hayes Eugene --> Eugene is my dad's middle name. I don't like pairing this with my middle name because together I think it sounds like a trendy girl's name. Hayes Lee = Hayslee or something.

Other names we have considered throughout are Davis, Gates, and Crosby.

Do you think either of these names grow better with a child as they mature? Am I overthinking this? LOL

My husband told me last night he thinks I should pick a name by next week and I said "No way! I will wait until I meet him if I really feel the need to". :D He is a-ok with either name and it is my decision.

I like Niko/Nico Lee! I think that sounds great on it's own and with your other two kids names.

I like Niko, with a K. I think a C would end up as Nicole for those who don't like to pay attention (or mean kids). Ur never really gonna get around any name tho, kids always find a way to tease each other. But yeah, getting ur middle name in there is a great idea. I'm sure whatever u choose will suit him perfectly! =))

Niko Lee flows so well together! I love it!

I also like Niko Lee!

We just finally settled on Adam Dominic. I wanted the syllables to be the same as my girls who are Lexus Valentine and Rowan Addison. We never had an issue with names until this baby lol!

Hey Erica, your are right people do have a ton of opinions when it comes to naming your child. For what its worth, I love the Niko Lee. I don't know to many Niko's and it does pair well with his brothers. For my first I didn't have a name until 39 weeks! We picked a name for this one but to be honest probably wont be 100% sure until delivery day. Best of luck with the name hunt!
