Family logo idea request


I'm using CorelDraw 2019 and I'm trying to create a family logo that I will put on T-shirts for my wife, myself and our two sons. Maybe eventually even a tattoo.

I'm using the first letter of our names.

I came up with this idea to start, which I really like:

I've been trying to add in the letters E and T somehow but all my attempts (10+) came out plain ugly or too literal, not "designy" enough to my taste. Here are some examples that I don't like:

Do you guys have any thought or track or idea to spare?
