Congrats on the new baby!
Ok, since you aren't looking for combos, I won't make them (even though I want to).
Here's the first names I love with Aphrodite:
Algernon -- Not a perfect match, but striking with Aphrodite and the images it conjures! Dashing, adventurous and so suave. Adore this name!
Auberon -- A lot like Algernon. It's dashing and adventurous sounding but soft and romantic
Endymion -- Another favorite! ADORE this with Aphrodite
Leonidas -- I agree with everything you said. Lovely name
Odin -- I don't think it goes perfectly together but I do love it for you
Orion -- I love everything about this name for you and it flows so smoothly with Aphrodite
Perseus -- Love the myth, love the sounds with Aphrodite
Rainier -- Love all the meaning this name has and it just sounds cool with Aphrodite
That's my two cents. When you're ready for combos, I'll be working on them ^_^Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^
Started my NaNoWriMo novel - Kith nor Kin -- read it here if you'd like and feel free to comment -- http://kithnorkin.wordpress.com/ Chapter 20 is up

Algernon - I like this a lot, but for someone else rather than myself. Algie would be a cute short form.
Ambrose - Neutral
Attila - Sound doesn't appeal to me.
Auberon - Like; prefer Oberon. Au's in names are not beloved by me (ex: Aubrey, Audrey)
Bensiabel - Just can't get behind this one. Sounds not masculine enough for the look your husband describes.
Casimir - Like it; it's on my own list of possibilities.
Damon - Handsome. Don't know the pop reference myself so can't say much about that.
Darius - Sounds good but for me it'd be too Darius Rucker.
Endymion - This one is cool and would pair well with the sister's name.
Evander - This one is on my list and I am wishy washy for the same reason you state so I think after seeing someone else voice that, I'll nix it. It doesn't have the same oomph as some of your other choices.
Gawain - Love, and I think it would fit with Aphrodite.
Herne - Nice name, but doesn't fit the general tone of the other options.
Leonidas/Leopold - Love both. Leonidas goes better with Aphrodite though.
Lucius - Good for a winter baby but I don't like it with Aphrodite for some reason.
Melchior - I am digging this one.
Odin - Like
Orion - Like!
Percival - Good, but reminds me of the Percy Jackson young adult novels? Which I think have to do with the Greek gods, so that would seem odd with Aphrodite.
Perseus - Same concern as with Percival.
Rainier - Love! This is on my list too to honor where I grew up, in the land of Mt. Rainier.
Romulus - Good choice.
Snowdon - Cool middle name but I can't see someone using this on daily basis as a FN as it almost seems like a surname.
Tiberius - Like it with Aphrodite, not so much otherwise.
Xerxes - I like this.
Favorite with sister: Auberon, Endymion, Gawain, Leonidas, Melchior, Odin, Rainier, Tiberius, Xerxes.moving to new account with username I like more... since we can't just change them
