We're not quite ready to try for #2 but I'm a name junkie. DS is Cyrus, named by my husband. We both adore his name as well as it's history and fit into both our cultures/families. (He's Persian and im from southeastern U.S.) I'm not sure we could ever find another name so "right."
We would like to keep with Persian names but it's not mandatory. Our list now:
Darius (DHs fav. Maybe too rhymey/cheesey with Cyrus?)
Caspian (my fav?)
MN would be Howard
Leona (to honor my mom Lenore)
MN Dion or Elise
Also, if you know (of) a Cyrus, what are his siblings called?

I really like the name Cyrus! I wouldn't do Darius, because like you said, it's a bit too close. I LOVE Caspian though, and I also like Jasper very much. Cyrus and Caspian. Cyrus and Jasper. Probably Jasper goes a bit better, but I really like them both.
From you girls I absolutely love Esther-it's one of my favorite names! Cyrus and Esther go great together as well. My second favorite would be Parisa, follwed by Zahra. Cyrus and Parisa. Cyrus and Zahra. I also do like Leona, but it's my least fav of your list
Other Persian names: *my favorites
Cyrus & Daric*
Cyrus & Naveed
Cyrus & Aban*
Cyrus & Xerxes
Cyrus & Javad
Cyrus & Aleah*
Cyrus & Faridah
Cyrus & Mehri

Cyrus & Farah
Cyrus & Niloufar
Baby name wizard is great for finding sibling names. They have lists of names of siblings that people can add if they knew a person with the name you search. This are some of what they have for Cyrus and the other names you like (most aren't Persian though):
Elanor Therese ~ Rosemary Luthien ~ Elizabeth Gloria ~ Abilene Cecilia
Lucy Magdalene ~ Susannah Violet ~ Caroline Mercy
Elsa Evangeline ~ Jane Magnolia ~ Sylvia Pearl ~ Cassia Valentine
Timothy Faramir ~ William Augustine ~ Percy Maximilian
Calvin Anthony ~ John Paul Atticus ~ Lincoln Ignatius

I love Cyrus! I agree Darius is too similar and I think Caspian is a different style, if that matters to you. My favorite combos are Jasper/Casper Howard, Parisa Dion, Esther Elise (I also like Esther Leona), Leona Dion and Zahra Dion (I would avoid a name ending in a with Elise for the sake of flow). Lenore would be a pretty mn and works w/ your other options, unless you don't want to use your mother's name directly.

I could never vote against Darius. I love it and I don't think it's too close to Cyrus.
I do love Jasper as well, though it's more popular than Cyrus, I still think it would be a good choice.
I like Esther, Leona and Zahra--all of them would fit beautifully with Cyrus and I would love to meet a Zahra!Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
