I think Solomon is the most obviously usable, but a couple others could definitely work.
Arlo makes me think of Harlow, which is one of my favorites...for girls. But with that spelling, I definitely think "boy." It also reminds me of Marlowe, which I think is a great guy name.
At first glance, Leonidas is way too strong...but not really. The Leo/Leon nickname would soften it right up. Even if you didn't throw a nickname on there, it's probably still usable simply because names starting with Leo are so popular right now.
Caedmon/Cademon is very interesting. I'm not brave enough for it, but I don't think it would be completely absurd for you to use it.
Mordecai...yeah, I wouldn't touch this one because it feels sort of super-villainy. Probably because of the "mor." Voldemort. Post-mortem. But hey, maybe it's just not my style.

Most of these are bit intimidating to me, but I voted for Arlo, as I've found that to be the most common (but not mainstream) boys' name on the list. We have 2 Arlos in my town that I know of; both very happy children.
