I love Oliver Ostman. It's just the right amount of alliteration in my opinion. I think Owen sounds way too close to your last name for it to be usable. From your list, I also love Ian! I think the beginning of the name doesn't matter as much as the ending of a name because with the ending of a name, you can get something that runs together or (like what Owen does) sounds too similar to one another.
I think Oliver Ostman and Ian Ostman sounds great!Love, Claire

I feel you! Our name is pronounced similar to Owen-bee and my favorite names for a long time has been Olivia and Elizabeth.
I do think alliteration can work. Oliver Ostman sounds great. Owen & Ian don't sound as good, but not bad.
I think Ethan Ostman also sounds great.
I'd stay away from August Ostman, that's a bit too much similarity.Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
