Thanks for always making such fun lists. I'm having way more fun than I should be while flopping around on the couch.
Auberon/Oberon (I much prefer Oberon. It has more cool factor.)
Archimedes - I know an Archimedes! He wears it fantastically. His brother, my childhood sweetheart, is named Copernicus.
I'd definitely drop:
Lucius, because while I love the character from Titus Andronicus, nobody plays villains like Jason Isaacs and he's ruined the name for a lot of people.
Herne, because all I can see is 'hernia'
Attila, because I think a twenty-first century male child would have a rough time with it. And there's the repeating first initial thing.
I'm also not a fan of Rainier, but that's just a personal preference.Gwen

The entire list is wonderful. Here are my top five and a couple of others in no particular order.
Auberon/Oberon - This just feels right with Aphrodite and is glorious on its own
Endymion - Its sound, its background, and its nickname - you would think it would be hard to find something as good or better but you have an entire list!
Casimir - I really wasn't sure at first but it seems to be getting better with repetition. A good sign for a name to last
Rainier - The world needs more Rainiers. I l-o-v-e it.
Leopold - Why is it here? I'm not sure but for some reason it made my little heart flutter.
Darius & Lucius - I like them both so much but the others are just so much more.

If I had to pick two from each "category", I would go with:
Perseus and Romulus
Oberon and Odin
Casimir and Rainier (though I love Melchior as well! All 3 are great.)
Leopold and Archimedes (though I do not think Archimedes is workable… maybe?)
I am a fan of Perseus, Romulus, Casimir, Rainier, and Leopold. Hope that helps. You have a very interesting taste in names - I wish you the best of luck in narrowing it down! You have some great names here!

Darius- not a fan at all.
Lucius-The name itself means light, but too many people correspond the name with evil. (Similar to Lucifer.)
Perseus- Absolutely! By far my favorite name on your list!
Romulus- I kind of dig this one too.
Auberon/Oberon- First spelling is better, but not a fan of either
Endymion-Not my favorite
Odin- Like this one!
Casimir -Ooh! Another good one!
Archimedes- Another love! Archie for short?
Faramond- Not sure about this one
Leopold- Great pick!

One I think you could drop:
Attila: I kept thinking of Attila the Hun. (Though, I CAN picture this on a baby for some reason) I just can't picture it on a grown man, that isn't a Hun, that is :P
Again, I LOVE Aphrodite with Endymion, but also:
Aphrodite & Auberon
Aphrodite & Orpheus
Aphrodite & Casimir
Aphrodite & FaramondSari, lover of names.
The enchanting little witches: Euphemia, Cressida, Ottoline & Hermione.
The charming young wizards: Bartholmew, Zephyr, Cosmo & Lucian.
