    newenglandinmay :  I really like Ezio. I’ve never heard it before and I kinda love it. Leonardo is a really nice name too but paired with those middle names it feels like a bit of a mouthful but I don’t dislike any of the options.

    I voted Ezio Renaldo but what about Ezio Leonardo or Leonardo Ezio?

    I have an Italian name that reads very differently in English and I’ve spent my life correcting people and wish my parents just chose to pronounce it the English way. I  know you said your husband has the same issue and it doesn’t bother him but I’d edge towards picking a name that is common enough that people won’t get too muddled pronouncing it. I like the name Ezio and can easily pronounce it because of my Italian heritage but I can forsee issues with pronunciation for non speakers of the romantic languages. I can imagine lots of people will try pronounce it like EASY-O….. 🤔

    Honestly I’d go with Leonardo because most people will either know the name already or if they don’t its easy to sound out.

    newenglandinmay :  I like Ezio Ronaldo the most! My husband is also Italian and I was worried about some of the names I like being too much of a mouthful with our last name, so you’re lucky that yours is one syllable!

    I’m not a fan of both names ending with O’s, can you do something different? Some options

    Raffaele Leonardo or switched

    Emmanuele Leonardo, or switched

    Gabriel Ezio or switched 

    Others Davide, Samuel, mattias, Giovanni, Luca, Cristian, Nicola, Domenic.

    Ezio just reminds me of thet game assassin’s  Creed, nothing wrong with it but I wouldn’t be able to un link the two lol. It’s a really cool name though and very masculine !!

    newenglandinmay :  I agree with cmsgirl :. I have a name that everyone always misspells, and sometimes mispronounce (though I don’t understand why people pronounce it wrong). I love my name, but I hate that people never get it right, and as a kid when looking at personalized keychains and bike plates, my name was never there. It didn’t build character for me, it made me feel excluded.

    knotyet :  I agree.  I never had a keychain with my name on it and I got super upset over it. 

    Why not pick a more mainstream name and keep an Italian middle name?

    Ezio is a nice name, however you are setting your child up for mispronunciation his entire life. Build character? I doubt it, more like build annoyance. I vote for any name that isn’t going to cause an issue in life, and unless someone is Italian, the pronunciation will be an issue.  I voted Leonardo Ronaldo, however Leonardo Ezio would satisfy both problems!

    knotyet :   JiminyCricket :  I also have a common name that my parents decided to spell alternatively. No key chains, no bike plates with my spelling! However these days the option to personalize items is much easier due to technology. As a retailer, I don’t have to order a variety of items with different names, I only have ‘blank’ items that can easily be personalized.  Hopefully this will be the future so that the little ones aren’t left out!

    newenglandinmay :  

    I like Leonardo.

    I think Ezio will always  be pronounced incorrectly and the common mispronunciation sounds  too much like  a product of some sort  ” make your shower grout cleaning  so much easier with Ezio……” 

    Oh, and I have to ask , what is a ‘bit’ name?

    I don’t like either. Ezio will be too hard to pronounce. And no, it doesn’t build character. And I think of DiCaprio every time I hear Leonardo.
