Timothy is another classic name that's disappearing, for whatever reason, and I think it's due for a revival. I also like Thomas too... there aren't as many Toms out there as there once were! It's...

I'm voting for Pierce too. Aside from just really liking the name, I think HampTON AnderSON is too close of a rhyme, as other posters have mentioned.
I don't think it's too "out there"... I'd have to see if I thought it was a good fit with the last name, though. There are some similar names: Rigby, Digby, or even Brody, Barney, Barnsley, etc..
Since the last name is a "B" name too, I'd go for a fn with a very different number of syllables.
So if the last name is long, pick a fn with one syllable. If the opposite is true, pick a long fn to...
I like all of your original suggestions, with the exception of Marjorie... I just haven't yet taken a shine to that name. Margaret would be my preference.
The top 3 that I'd pick:
I really like Nell Beatrix or Nell Harper. My only advice would be to stay away from a mn with too many strong "L"s in it.
Some more possibilities:

I prefer Wolfric William. I like the cadence a bit better, two syllables followed by three syllables. Plus however many syllables are in your last name.
John Hutton has my vote.
I love John. It's classic, masculine, uncomplicated, and there probably won't be several other Johns in your son's class at school!
Hutton has a nice ring to it too....
Elizabeth = "God is my oath"
Celestine = "heavenly"
Dominica, Dominique = "belongs to the Lord"
Ginette, Jeanette, Jeanne, Janine, etc. = "God is gracious"
Anna = "God's favour, grace"
It still seems a tad dated to me. Although I've really liked every Jackie I've ever met, it has a strong link to a specific generation in my mind.
There are a couple of German girl's names that come to mind:
Also there's the French name Lisette.
Liz might work as a nickname for Eloise or Heloise...

This was challenging...

It seems to me that there are more one-syllable boy names to pick from than there are one-syllable girl names.
For the girls, there are the usual familiar names: Rose, Grace, Anne, Faith, and a...
Your cousins seem to like sturdy, traditional names. So if it's a boy again, maybe:
For a girl, I'd suggest...

I think Dorothea is a marvellous name.
I've been liking the nn Dora lately. Dorine, Doriana or Doriane might work also.

I like Remy... on the other hand, Sebastian's pretty popular. If I heard Remington, I'd say for sure the parents were Wild West fans. (Whether that's true or not, I can't tell. Lol.)
That leaves all sorts of possibilities... here's what comes to mind:
Saul is an option as a first or mn. I think I like it slightly better than the full Solomon...
The -ette ending, making a "diminutive" form of a more traditional name isn't very popular right now (Claude->Claudette, Violet->Violette, etc.). It's funny though... if you drop the extra "te" on...
I knew a guy from Aberdeen, Scotland who would pronounce that name Cat-ree-OH-nah. I'm not sure if that's correct or not, but it was similar to other Scottish names like Fiona or Shiona.
I've never heard of it before--but I like it! I like the sound of a lot of very similar names: Brynn, Bronwen, Bronte, Bruna.
I like them both--but separately, because I don't feel keen on the rhyme between a fn and a mn. I'd tweak it in some way--perhaps Finlay Tristan, with the nn Finn?
...or maybe Olivia Alice?
