There's also the traditional Scottish name Sholto (Shawl-toe). I don't know if that fits your requirements.
I'm thinking Bennett
I wonder what would be revealed by a similar analysis of posters claiming to have large families? The average woman in the US has 2.1 kids, and the number of posters here claiming to have 5-6 kids...

I find Louis Zephyr kind of hard to say, because the "s" runs into the "Z". Other than that, I think they are all doable, with the usual caveat that family control over nicknames diminishes once a...
Kim was traditionally a man's name. Rudyard Kipling's novel "Kim" has a male protagonist. I also know some Asian-American men named Kim.
However, once a name becomes firmly entrenched in the...
I like Caspar, Arlo, and Otto quite a bit.
Since many of the names your husband is suggesting come from Dickens, you might also consider
Phillip (Great Expectations)
I think they really are too close. If they end up at the same school , their teachers will be tearing out their hair."Cyril Xxx?" "NO, his sister Sybil Xxx." In a pinch, you could go with the...
I like Oliver Julian Thomas the best. Marlowe Oskar is also good.
I think if you are going for a traditional French hyphenated name, it would be more consistent to have two French names, i.e....

I'm pretty sure that everyone will initially pronounce it Ray-den, which makes it sound like an Aidan-Caden-Jayden name. You can, of course, correct people, and many people meeting your son for the...
I would pronounce it Oh'-ber-on. Writer Auberon Waught often went by "Bron".

It has most of the royal families of Europe, plus a lot of the nobility going back to the 15th century. It's a good place to get ideas, becuase it is a huge...

I really like Griffin and Eamon
I was also a bit taken aback by Temujin because of Genghis Khan. However, Napoleon is revered in France, even as Americans have adopted the UK perspective that he...

The actor Dougray Scott took his stage name from his grandmother's last name. Apparently, she was French. He was the first person who popped into mind when I read your post.
They certainly aren't names that I would pair together. The character of Lilith Sternin-Crane on the show "Frasier" was named ironically. This may be another case where you guys need to envision...
There is considerable cultural and genetic overlap between the Scots and the Norwegians, so Magnus has traditionally been a popular name in Scotland, although people in Scotland today are leaning...
Today's kids are so awash in different cartoon universes, from Curious George to Sponge Bob, that I think it's probably fine to use. Peanuts aren't nearly as universal and dominant as they were when...
Ry does sound like a nickname. Ry Cooder, the musician/composer, is actually named Ryland. You could also consider Rhys.

I think this just dooms a kid to spelling his name for people for the rest of his life. A lot of people would also assume that it was short for Jacqueline.
A lot of the names on your list are great options. Elijah sounds particularly good with Timothy.
I would probably avoid Titus and Tyrus. If your other son is Timothy, the names sound a bit...

Kyril (sadly, his alphabet-inventing partner, St Methodius, has few baby namesakes by comparison)
