Help! Name for 2 Week Baby Boy
My husband and I are having a terrible time naming our 2 week old baby boy. We have a family name that will be used for his middle name - Cruz, but cannot find common ground on a first name. Our last name starts with an "O".
We both strongly dislike each other's top pick. Husband - Brennan; Me - Beckett. This leaves us trying to comprise which is what we ended up doing with our first son and now we have name remorse. Our first son is Aston Cole. We call him Cole.
My top picks:
Im not sure what would work with my first son's name and what would work with Cruz. Any comments/suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you!!!

I would avoid another name that ends similar to Aston (Breccan, Colton - too similar to Cole). Archer shares the same initial as your older son, Miles Cruz isn't ideal and I'm not a fan of Walker. So that leaves Maxwell Cruz which is my favourite of your lists.

Aston Cole has a faintly preppy vibe (especially given Aston Martin, the luxury car maker). I actually think you and your husband aren't far off from each other, in that you've both favored occupational names like Archer or Walker, preppy names like Colton or Miles, and seem to like 2-syllable names. I actually think any name you suggested would work well with Aston Cole "Olivera" & _ Cruz "Olivera."
Since Cole & Cruz are both 1-syllable names starting with C, I *wouldn't* copy Aston and give another A name.
Aquila * Chrysanthe * Emmanuelle * Endellion * Ione * Jacinda * Lysandra * Melisande * Myrra * Petra * Rosamond * Seraphine * Silvana * Theophane / Blaise * Cyprian * Darius * Evander * Giles * Laurence * Lionel * Malcolm * Marius * Peregrine * Rainier

It seem like you have kind of a preppy style, while your husband favors cowboyish names.
Here's some names that I think sort of bridge the gap:

Boy: Asa Guillaume, Barnaby August
Girl: Apolline Iris- Polly, Clothilde Juno- Chloe
