    Usable, and I love them:

    Girls
    Amaryllis
    Penelope
    Ione
    Xanthe
    Calanthe
    Andromeda
    Zephirine
    Ariadne
    Ianthe
    Iris
    Phoebe
    Selena
    Irene/Eirene
    Hesper/Hesperia


    Boys
    Lysander
    Damon
    Hector
    Ulysses
    Atlas

    Less usable, but I like them
    Eurydice
    Khione
    Nyx

    It is my own personal AAAARGH moment that most -e ending Greek names, like any other -ee sound ending names, sound pretty weird with our surname. This makes my girls list side very tilted and sad.

    I like a lot of mythological names and find the ones you listed absolutely normal for everyday life (I'd only doubt Persephone but I know a few who bear it well so...).
    My most beloved ones are Hermione(actually, it's my daughter's name) for a girl and Perseus for a boy.
    Other favorites of mine include:
    Athena
    Artemis
    Cleodora
    Cressida
    Daphne
    Demeter
    Electra
    Harmonia
    Hero
    Leto
    Medea
    Nike
    Penelope
    Phoebe
    Psyche
    Selene
    Sybil
    Terpsichore
    Thalia
    Thisbe

    Adonis
    Apollo
    Atlas
    Bellerophon
    Charon
    Dionysus
    Endymion
    Hector
    Hermes
    Leander
    Nestor
    Odysseus
    Orpheus
    Paris
    Phoenix
    Poseidon

    I find them all usable and recognizable so I may name my child one of these names in the near future.
