Congratulations Blade!! Awesome news. No new suggestions over here, but from your list I also adore Leander (even though it is my son's middle name and I love it, I think it fits so well with Antoine). However, a name that has been suggested that I think fits even better is Pascal. Love that one on its own and even more-so with Antoine.

I wrote a short paragraph explaining why I don't like Leander, but I was having trouble with it, and then I realized it's because I guess I sorta do like Leander. I also like Leland. And Leonardo. And Leonidas. And Lev. Apparently if it begins with Le- I like it.
I speak enough French to get myself out of (or into) trouble if I ever find myself in a French-speaking country, but not enough that I look at Serge and go "SAIRZH!" That's kind of a drama queen example but you know what I mean. I just say the names like an American, for good or ill. So with that in mind, I love:
Serge - ha! But seriously.
Blaise - I love this so much
Louis - love!
And for not-French boy names, I like Victor and I don't know how you feel about this, but I love Virgil. I also like some of the classic dude names you mentioned, like Peter and George, and I think it would be kind of amazing to know of a sibset that consisted of Antoine and George.
I can also see a name like Ignatius or Leonidas or Ptolemy working for your kid. (How awesome is Ptolemy? Is it just me? My husband didn't even humor me with a verbal response when I mentioned this name. I just got a baleful eye and a slow head shake.)
I do think Antoine and Malcolm gives off a white guilt vibe. Or something weird.
I also like:
Whatever you pick, I know it's gonna be amazing. Congrats again!Mrs. H.

I really like Cyprian; it would be amazing to use this rare, ancient name. Ambrose is one I'd love to use myself, and again it's a marvelous, ancient name with gravitas that few dare to use. Ambrose and Antoine aren't too matchy; they start and end on the same letter, but all those in-between are different. Leander is cool too. Ignatious is a harder name to wear, but makes an awesome middle. And if you're trending toward ancient saints, don't forget Gregory, Isidore, Leo, Jerome.
