I can think of loads of Italian ones, as they usually benefit from an extra vowel on the end to give another syllable (Giovanni, alessandro, leonardo, Luciano etc), but I'm guessing that's not what you're looking for if it needs to go with Alexander and Sebastian?

Just curious as to why ome of your considerations is number of syllables? Have you got a short surname or form filling will be a problem (I have long first and surnames and a middle name as well and it's a bit of a pain.

The following link has a list. I think a lot are obscure or only four syllables using a non English spelling (like Frederico not Frederick) I like Antonio
