Bronxmom are you in the bronx? Because Teo is just not going to be particularly strange there, its the Italian and Spanish form of Theo.
Teodor/Teodoro/Teodosio/Teofilo/Matteo/Timoteo/Dante are all names that would work with Teo as a nickname if you want a fuller name for him. (I happen to love Teodor and Matteo) I am personally a fan of longer names but that doesn't mean there is anything really wrong with Teo as a stand alone. The Tee-o/Tay-o pronunciation divide is the only real issue I can see with it and I think Tay-o is one you are likely to get more often.
If you decide to go with Teo than a longer more substantial middle name gives him some choice to use both names professionally if he feels he needs more weight. So Teo Daniel if your family decided it was ok for it to be a middle name, or Teo Dylan if not, would be reasonable.
If you just aren't sure about Teo as a first name, Dylan is just fine as a first name and you could name him Dylan Teo and still call him Teo when you wanted to at home.
I'm rooting for Teodor Dylan or Matteo Dylan But seriously Teo Dylan or Dylan Teo are both completely fine solid interesting but not weird names.
