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 | Gwendolen | Octavia | Eve | March | Edwen
Simeon | Lionel | Barnabus | Ezekiel | Hector | Ignatius | August | Jove | Sayer | Booker | Mariner | Cecil | Godfrey

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.Expecting #1 November 2015Bonnie...Or...Finn

Percival - sorry it's not my thing
Perseus - same as above

Equinox - Knox can work, and Maddox. What about Eckhart?
Galileo - I wouldn't start a boys name with Gal. Gilead?

Brick - Brock? yes, Brigsby? maybe, Brick? no
Winter - I like this okay on a girl because of Winnie, not so much on a boyOlivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
