You have a lot of great choices on your list! Since baby's last name has 2 syllables, a fn with 3 or more syllables coupled with a mn with 1 syllable would give optimal flow imo. For example:
Xavier North Gawris
Ezekiel Oak Gawris
Tobias North Gawris
Lionel Oak Gawris
My favourite names from your list are first Tobias then Ezekiel, Xavier & Lionel. Here are some other suggestions:
Ezekiel Tate Gawris
Tobias James Gawris
Xavier Charles Gawris
Lionel Graeme Gawris (unless you don't like aliterations)
Tobias Kent Gawris
Tobias Knox Gawris
Lionel John Gawris
Xavier Neil Gawris
Ezekiel Nash Gawris
Lionel Seth Gawris

The only advice I can give is to keep in mind the whimsy-ness of a daugter. A friend of mine wanted a daughter so dearly but was blessed with a son named John. She wanted to name her daughter Antigone. Just something to keep in mind.
Names we both like:
Abram/Ezekiel/Tobias: give a really religious feel that your girls names don't. I prefer Abraham & Ezra. Tobias is nms. It feels weak to me.
Archer: a bit trendy, rather whimsical depending on the middle
Bruno: reminds me of Bruno Mars and the perverted Bruno movie
Griffin: NMS. whimsical though
Lionel: strong though I prefer Leopold or Leontine.
Ronan: strong. may be a little trendier now. Feels rather whimsical.
North/River: Natury. I really live River for a first. Rivers are strong and changing. I think North is better suited for a middle.
Xavier: strong and solid. My friend has this name. As a child I called him "X-man". There are two different to pronounce it: Zay-vee-r and X-ay-veer.
Wyatt: reminds of Watt. nms.
I really like:

Ellie, a boy! How exciting! Like Emma said, there are lots of funsies with boys too, like the mentioned bowties. And suspenders, and hair that's just a little bit too long. Hats and waistcoats. And boys can have whimsical and fun names too!
Bruno - I am overjoyed to see this on your list. Bruno rocks!
Griffin - I'm not a fan of this, but it does have some whimsy.
Xavier - love Xavier. Strong, sexy, fun.
Ronan - this is probably a Brit thing, but it's too associated with mr Keating for me to like it.
Ezekiel - I do kind of like it... but not very much.
Abram - so serious. This is heavy and with a full beard kind of name. And not in a good way.
Wyatt - I've got a Charmed addiction, so I associate Wyatt with mr whitelighter and Piper's baby. Which means it's so cool!
Archer - yup, I do like me some archers. Great, whimsical and sexy.
North - please please put this in the middle. I love Emma's Xavier North suggestion.
River - cute and hippie-ish. Like it very much.
Tobias - this is heavy and bearded in a sexy brooding way. Interesting name.
Lionel - sweet and charming. When I hear Lionel I always imagine little blonde boys in yellow wellies jumping in muddle puddles.
From your middle list I only like Halcyon and Oak.
Suggestions (of the whimsical kind):
Elder (so sexy and the tree is beautiful)
Leverett (baby hare!)
