Yeah, so you can see my problem, but I like a lot of the combos suggested! One of the big things is that my first son is Brian, so there's something to be said for not going too unusual, like naming one kid John and the other Moonbeam.
The issue with Oz is that I really like it, but don't like most of the names that lend themselves to the Oz nickname. Ozyus is kind of cool though, I'll have to look that one up.
I do really like Calix, and I can see why others might find it feminine, but I'm ok with that. I do agree that Frost, etc. would be better suited to middle names, especially since my first has a sort of nature-y middle name (though it was the English version of Zev, so the intent was different.)
If anyone has other name suggestions, that would be good. I do also like Cassius, but I'm not sure if it's a little pretentious. It could be shortened to Cash?

It might be a bit of a stretch, but what about Oisin nn Oz?
The only ones that really work with Brian are Cormac and Roman…The rest of your list all make exceptional middles, but particularly Winter, Frost, North, Destry, Rowan, and Bayard. I do love Romulus, but it doesn't flow as a middle, and it clashes with Brian as a first
Some other firsts that may appeal to you, and meld a little better with Brian:
Conan – this could be a problem though, a la Conan O'Brien >_>
Some combo ideas off the top of my head:
Brian Wolf and August Bayard
Brian Wolf and Roman Oisin – not the best stylistic match, but I couldn't resist!
Brian Wolf and Patrick North
Brian Wolf and Owen Destry
Brian Wolf and Cormac Rowan
Brian Wolf and Felix Winter
Brian Wolf and Griffin North
Brian Wolf and Lucius RowanZion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____
Alice Willow ~ Ophelia Wren ~ Juliet Snow ~ Lucia Pearl ~ Eve Wisteria nn Evie ~ Cosima Rose ~ River Seraphine ~ Elowen Briar
Narnia Rose, Astoria nn Story, Illyria, Serafina, Soraya, Faerydae
Orion Melchior North, Tobias Loki, Edmund, Frost, Oberon, Kenshin, Remiel, Atreyu

Nancy, sorry! While I'm not against such unusual names, and several I like, if you want it not to sound totally "out there" compared to your other son's names, I would say most of these are a little.... much.
The ones I could see working:
Yes, I believe North is ruined.
Sebastian nn Bash - a nod to your French roots
ArloMama to Nora.
Griffin (Finn). Declan (Dex). Miles. John (Johnny). Graham. Ewan. Jasper.
Ruby. Iris. Eve. Ivy. Bonnie. Hazel. Esme.
Names hubby and I agree on for #2: Gwyneth (Gwen). Vivian (Vivi or Viv). Claire. Rhoswen (Rosie or Winnie). Alice. Eden (Edie). Marie. Anneliese (Anna or Annie).
