When we lived in Canada we adopted an older Newfie that we adored. His name was Norman, after Stormin' Norman Schwarzkopf, and we called him Normey, it so suited him! He was a great, great dog.
Gilbert, from Anne of Green Gables
Gordon, many Canadian politicians are named Gordon, Cameron, and Graham
St John, pronounced Sinjin, after St Johns Newfoundland
Any Scottish name will do, such as Rabbie, Tammas, Sandy, Jock, Tavish, Malcolm, Mac, etc
Magnus is good; also, since it was Leif Erikssen who had the first European colony in Newfoundland, you could choose a Viking name as well.
Newfies are lovable and playful, so keep that in mind. Doesn't he already have his kennel name?

Newfoundland dogs are huge dogs with big hearts so I like Magnus from your list. My Mom is from Newfoundland so here are some other suggestions.
Cove (lots of coves on the island)
Gander (place name)
Burin (place name)
Random (Head and Island)
