Is Huw a family name? I know it's a legitimate variant, but I think Hugh is the more recognizable spelling and most people would think it was spelt like that. For Freddie would you be opposed to using a longer form like Frederick, Winifred(For a girl!), or Alfred?
My favorite with Amy are Henry, Michael and Thomas.
Best of your list in my opinion:
Could I have your thoughts in this thread? I'll return the favor.
(name) = second middle
Alaric Matthew | Edmund Leander | Henrik Balthazar
Aleksander Tadhg | Sebastian Rhys | Peter Malachi | Caspar
Silas Frédéric| Gideon Arthur | James Nikodem | Giles
Rowena Isabel | Helen Rosalind | Lydia Primrose
Freyja Hermione | Gemma Viviane | Beatrix Lyra
Lilith Seraphine | Adalind Fox | Katarina Ivy

Aaron - I'm not a native english speaker so every time I hear this, it sounds like the girls name Erin to me.
Henry - LOVE that name.
Bradley - not my style
Edward - like it
William - a bit boring
Adrian - not a fan
Hayden - way to popular "-ayden" sound included
Donovan - nice name, not loving it with Amy-Louise though
Sheldon - Cooper (usable though, just my association)
Nicholas - okay
Callum - okay
Nathan - like Nathaniel better
Lucas - nice
Huw (Pronounced Hew - like Dew) - nobody would know how to spell or pronounce it.
Hunter - such a strong occupational name, doesn't sound too well with Amy-Louise
Brett - nah
Aiden - see Hayden
Corey - nah
Dean - nah
Levi - like it
Freddie - After my grandfather - while I don't love the name, it's kinda cute
Michael - boring
Sebastian - like it
Alex - too unisex
Rory - like it BUT because of Doctor Who I wouldn't make Amy and Rory your sibset
Theo - LOVE it
Samuel - not my cup of tea
Spencer - nah
Thomas - nah
Owen - nah
Lloyd - to me it still a surname
Noah - LOVE it
Troy - nah
I think Amy-Louise can either sound very classic or very modern. So if you go with something like Henry, Theo or Edward it becomes classic however if you pair Hayden, Troy or Aiden with it, it sounds very modern.

Freddie - After my grandfather. [I like Frederick John David!]
are some of my favorites from your list.
I agree with the above poster, Henry, William, Samuel - it will become more classic.
Hayden, Troy, Aiden - more modern. It just depends on the way you want to go.
I think you have some lovely combos. Hopefully you can choose! Good luck!

Thank you - Frederick, Winifred & Alfred are all weird to me they sound like old man and women's name. - Freddie is after my grandfather. - Who's name was Fred (Fred only). - I dont like this either. - I like Freya on a girl though.
Aaron can be said (Ah-Ron - sounds like Erin or Air-Ron), This spelling is Air-ron. - I prefer Arron (Ah-Ron).
Sheldon - I'v never heard of Sheldon Cooper but Sheldon is after a place me and my boyfriend first went on holiday Shaldon.
Huw - I come from Wales and I live in the UK where Huw is a more common spelling so that is not really a concern. - I'm thinking maybe Henry with the nn Huw.
Rory - My boyfriends uncle loved Doctor Who so I thought this would be quite cute.
