    Andrew if nn Drew, Will, Elle and Drew would be super cute. If not, I kind of like Rex. Will, Elle and Rex sounds nice. Good luck!

    I like them all, don't really think you can go wrong. Having a William and a Wright could get confusing around the house, but that may not be an issue for you. I like Barrett David its different and flows well; that would probably be my choice. Best of luck!

    Wright- kinda cool, but he might always be "right" about everything... So not my favorite on your list.
    Rex- I think T Rex. Very masculine, but not sure David sounds that great with it. Rex David sounds kind of choppy.
    Andrew- love this with your other two kids! Maybe nn Drew?
    Lincoln- again, cool.. But might like better as a mn. Not crazy about Linc as a nn.
    Barrett- I like this one, too. Bear is a cute nn.

    both Will and Elle are sleek, formal, no-nonsense, 1-syllable names.

    Andrew & William are the closest match in terms of being timeless, popular, classic boys' names.

    Wright has the formal monosyllabic thing going on, but I do worry about the 'right' homonym.

    Rex is fun-- any little boy, once he starts leaning about dinosaurs, will think this is the coolest name around, especially once he learns it means 'king.' However, I think it's too dramatic, too dashing, and makes Will's name in particular look bland. It could lead to jealousy between the brothers.

    Lincoln & Barrett are similar; both are formal surnames that wear well into adulthood, and both have zippy 1-syllable nicknames. However, Will & Elle share a prominent 'L' sound, which Lincoln also has (2 Ls, like the siblings). Barrett sounds a bit heavier and mouthier next to them.

    For those reasons, my vote would be for Lincoln David, nn Link. Good luck and congratulations!
