Alexander - Like!

Gabriel - It's ok.
Henry - Love!
Lawrence - It's ok.
Patrick - Love! Another I'd consider but my cousin used to be married to a Patrick who was a bit of a jerk, so not sure if I want to bring up any memories for her.

Alexander - love the long form, and Xander, strongly dislike Alex, which is boring, common, and sadly, almost inevitable. Which is too bad, because I adore Alexander. So handsome.
Dominic - just alright. I find the nicknames dull.
Edward - this is growing on me. I think it's so regal, and distinguished, but also so accessible and cute!
Evan - a comfortable, well-known name that boys seem to like having.
Gabriel - I've never loved this, despite that it is a classic with a strong history. Would sound great with big sister's name though.
Henry - adorable, wonderful, sweet and strong! Can't go wrong with this choice!!
Lawrence - I've always loved this, but don't know why. I think it's very handsome and intelligent-sounding, without sounding pretentious or snobish. Again, I think this would make a winning sibset with Agatha (which I've yet to compliment - Agatha Arwen is lovely!!!)
Patrick - another comfortable, friendly name. Love this one.
Rory - cute and cool - a little nickname-ish.
Solomon - a tad too quirky for my tastes.
Theodore - such an excellent name, would transition so well from baby to child to teen to adult, with several great nns (Teddy, Ted, Theo...).
My FAVORITES from your list (on their own AND paired with sister's name):
The ONLY one I dislike - Solomon.
Good luck! You have an excellent list - you really can't go wrong!

They're all nice enough names, but I'll leave the ones I love to comment on.
Alexander - I love how regal this sounds and if the full name doesn't fit him, you have TONS of other options for nn's. Alexander Austin also has nice flow and alliteration, which is totally cool in my book! (Two AA's though, don't know if that bugs you?)
Gabriel - Love this name. It creeped up on me recently and I really dig it. Gabriel Austin sounds nice as well.
Henry - Another very regal name. Don't like it as much with Austin, though.
Patrick - Such a cute name. It's a little bit quirky and a lot a bit cool
Solomon - This is my number one for you! I like this best with Agatha. However, Solomon Austin is slightly awkward with the 'n' endings. It's likely to be a non issue, though, since the fn and ln are typically only said.
Theodore - LOVE! This is my favorite name at the moment (that I haven't used). I just adore the sound and elegance of this name. It's my second choice for you and I think it flows better with Austin.
My top 3: Solomon, Theodore, and Alexander.Current loves: Theodore & Rosalind
