You have some wonderful names on your list, Blade! I'll bold my favourites.
Ambrose - I love this name but Antoine and Ambrose share an initial (AN and AM)
Blaise - I really love this name with Antoine.
Cyprian - I like this name but I don't like the similar "an" between ANtoine and CypriAN.
Elias - This Greek version is lovely and I don't mind it with Antoine. Isn't the French Elie?
Evander - ANtoine and EvANder bother me. Unfortunatley, this name makes me think of the boxer more than the saint or mythology.
Laurence - A great classic name that so unappreciated. It deserves more respect than it gets. I'm biased because one of my favourite actors was Sir Laurence Olivier and I always think of blond actor Peter O'Toole on a camel in the desert playing "Lawrence of Arabia".
Leander - ANtoine and LeANder is not ideal.
Lionel- A vintage and underused choice.
Lucian - Oh how I love this name but again there is ANtoine and LuciAN.
Marius - This name is popular in Northern Europe. I like it!
Raoul - This has the same suave French flair as Antoine's so it's a great choice!
Victor - A great classic name which also has a wonderful meaning.

Raoul is such a cool name. I still really love Lionel for you too. And I think Ignatius is too good not to use. So my favorites are Raoul Ignatius or Lionel Ignatius. Either one sounds like it could be a brother to Antoine Raphael. I think that they are names that are unique, without being over the top or difficult to pronounce/spell. People will be familiar with them- even if they don't hear them a lot.
I like Lucien too, but I prefer Lucius.Trying, trying, trying
