Help!! We are stuck.
Hello! We are expecting our second child in October, and it's a boy. We are completely stuck for names...
We already have a daughter whose name is Olivia Etienne. Our last name is Indrigo, which is said In-DREEE-go. We are planning on using our fathers' names--Victor and Valentino--for the middle names, so it's already kind of a mouthful. I would love some feedback on these possibilities:
My husband's family is Italian, I'm Ukranian and British. Honestly, we are not really in love with any of these names...Felix was our frontrunner but the grandparents don't love it, and we aren't 100% sold on it either.
Thoughts? Be honest, we can take it. :-)

I like them all. Everything is going to sound like a mouthful with Victor Valentino, so I wouldn't make that sway you. There are only a few times when anyone even hears the middle names. I like Theodore, the best (love Teddy, like Theo). My second choice would be Sebastian or Felix.
IMO, Grandparents should have ZERO say in what you name your baby. We're not even discussing it with them. They'll find out the name when the cute little perfect baby is here.

Felix- I love this name and I like the flow with your last name, my favorite with all factors considered
Leo- with Valentino and your last name there are too many ee and o sounds, it kind of rhymes
Max- I like this, it feels crisp, but it's not my favorite with Olivia, Maxwell perhaps?
I would avoid Alexander, Theodore and Sebastian since they are three syllables (I love all three names though and you could always use a nn, Alex, Theo, Seb/Bas/Ian.

I like Max and Sebastian. Felix and Leo are both a bit kitty-ish, especially Felix. Here are a few other suggestions.
Vincent / Vinnie
Giancarlo / Gianni / Carlo
I really love Victor, honestly. It is under-used and classic.
