Need a boy's name starting with A.

My husband and I are expecting our first baby together,but we have a blended family so this will actually be our fourth child. We don't plan to find out the baby's sex so we need to have names ready for either way. We've decided that we'll be naming a girl Nola June, but we can't seem to find a boy's name. Since both of our sons have nicknames we'd like a name that lends itself to a nickname.

My husband's brother who unfortunately passed away about 2 years ago, was Anthony "A.J." My husband is James and my grandfather is James so we'll be using James as a middle name . While A.J. had a son also named Anthony we'd like to honor his brother by using an A first name. As I said I'd like this name to have a nickname since both of our sons have nicknames. Our children are Iris Kathleen- 10, August William "Gus"-8, and Griffin Scott "Finn"-7.  So something that would fit in with those. My husband said he wanted something cool and edgy and I'm just looking for it not to be any form of August or popular. As a woman with such a common first name that I've gone by my middle name since I started grade school I would prefer something a little on the uncommon side.  

Thanks for any and all suggestions.
