That's quite a list, lengthwise.
Names that I think are very usable, that I like, or aren't too out there for a kid:
Winter - Fine, prefer it as a middle, might be hard for a boy to carry, but not impossible.
Perseus - Very usable. It's not my style, but it's not my kid, is it?
Ace - cute, but insubstantial
Ambrose - I like it. Distinguished, funky, but usable. Might sound a little uppity to some.
Anatole - One of my favourites on your list. I prefer the Russian variation, Anatoly.
Arrow - Cute. Works better as a middle for me, but not impossible as a first at all.
Avery - Very workable. I like it.
Balthazar - Prefer it spelled Balthasar (a little less Disney-villain). I like it a lot, but it might be a hard name to cary? Nickname Zar could be cool.
Barrett - Okay. Very usable.
Bay - Funky, I like it. I think its use on Once Upon a Time for Rumpel's son makes it usable for a boy.
August - a great name. The nick Gus is super cute, as well.
Booker - One of my favourites. I'd have used it were I not black. I was afraid people would think I was naming him after Booker T. Washington, who I'm not fond of.
Bruce (family name, maybe mn?) - I like it as a first or a middle.
Caspian - Cool.
Clyde - Cool.
Dorian - Cool.
David - Cool, maybe dull.
Dune - Cool. I haven't heard this before. Naturey and kind of a nice science fiction nod.
Jupiter - I know a little girl named this. She's adorable. Probably works even better on a boy. We call her Jupe. Jove is also a workable nickname.
Logan - very blah and trendy compared to some of your other choices.
Ocean - Interesting. It could work.
Paris - I hate the mythological figure. It was cute on Rory's friend, though.
Percival - All right.
Phoenix - A lot. Maybe for a middle?
On your guilty pleasure list, I think Onyx could work fairly easily. Also, Juniper and Cedar.
A lot of your place names left me rather cold, especially the rather random ones, like Baltimore. It's a strange city to name a kid after.
Mary | Elsbeth | Clotilde | Everild | Beatrix | Junia | Tabitha | Lavender | Octavia | Eve | March | Edwen
Simeon | Lionel | Barnabus | Ezekiel | Hector | Ignatius | August | Jove | Sayer | Booker | Mariner | Cecil | Godfrey
Mum to Ulysses, Bishop, Winifred and one yet unnamed boo.

I won't comment on all of the names, but I made a list of my favorites, names I like ok, names I think would work best in the middle, and names I don't think work AT ALL. So I guess I'm just leaving out the names I think could work, but don't do anything special for me.
Addison -- This is a trendy/popular girl's name these days
Pretty much all of the place names-- You have some uncommonly heard choices here, but that just makes me feel even more that they do not belong as names. The only one I like at all is Phoenix.
Picasso-- has an association too strong to work on a child, in my opinion.
Indigo -- I think this name is lovely on a girl, but I'm not sold on the other gender.Arrietty Hazel, Blythe Frances, Elenore Alice, Greta Eliza, Iris Tabitha, Matilda Clara, Olive Madeline, Ruby Anne, Sally Clementine, Susan EloiseCalvin Oliver, Charles Eldridge, Finn Wyatt, George Arthur, Henry Nigel, Liam Ezra, Milo Everett, Samuel Hiram, Tobias David, Roland Oskar

Winter - I like this okay on a girl because of Winnie, not so much on a boyLivy/Lucy : Geneva/Gwen : Coralie/Alice : Noelle/Eve
