Personally, I would avoid the same first initial so if you use Caleb that rules out Cyrus and if you use Thomas that rules out Timothy. I would also pair names of the same style - you have traditional Christian names (Daniel,Timothy, Peter, Thomas), Old Testament names (Caleb, Ezra,Moses, Etc). I would also want around the same level of popularity so I would avoid pairing super popular Noah with very uncommon Cyrus.
In order of preference, I like:
Jonah Henry and Silas Quentin
Elijah Christian and Malachi Kenan
Daniel Balin and Timothy RobertI like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

It seems to me you have 3 groups: classic, modern classic, and unusual Biblical (I know they're all Biblical, but some are far less common and far more associated with the Bible). There's a bit of overlap but not too much (Elijah and Micah would work, but Daniel and Malachi would be tougher)
I would personally choose from within those groups.
So Peter and Jonathan, Daniel and Thomas, Caleb and Timothy.
Noah and Elijah, Ethan and Lucas
Micah and Tobias, Silas and Ezra, Cyrus and Moses
Caleb Augustine - love this one!
Ethan Cyrus - love this one!
I think Caleb Augustine and Ethan Cyrus would be my choiceOlivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve

I'm sorry it took so long to respond, my computer has been acting funny.
I do agree Kala_way we do have a split in the kinds of biblical names we've chosen. I think it would be nice to combine one common or modern common name with an unusual biblical name because although Zachariah is on the charts it's not as well known as Isaiah and of course Isaiah is super popular.
I'm also going to talk to DH tomorrow and look at getting rid of the more uncommon names that don't have a NN that can make it more common. I.E. Zachariah can be shortened to Zach and blend in with the Zachary's if he so chooses.Mom to Isaiah Gabriel (4/26/06), Zachariah Xavier (2/4/10), Obadiah Malachi (2/9/11, angel), Theodore Ronan (8/24/12, angel)
