Arthur -- I am partial to this name seeing as it's a big family name for me. I do like it though. It is classic and masculine. I saw another person posted on here that Ari was a nn she was going to use for Arthur. I really like Ari as opposed to Artie.
Maximilian -- This name is growing on me. I tend to like more formal sounding first names that have an obvious nn option. This is a perfect example of that. It's not my favorite name out there, but it is definitely a solid name.
Hector -- Not a fan of this.
Theodore -- I love Theodore, for the same reasons as Maximilian. Teddy is just the cutest nickname for a little boy too.
William -- I wouldn't use it because it's a little too common for my taste. But this name has stood the test of time, so it's obviously a good choice
Cyril -- Don't like.
Leopold -- This name is ok, but I much prefer Leonard. Both have the Leo nn, but Leonard is much less cold than Leopold.
Wilfred -- No, don't like.
Freddie -- I like Freddie if you use the full name Frederick. I'm not really a fan of nicknames as given names.
Some similar names are:

Arthur -- love
Maximilian -- prefer Maxwell, as it has less spelling variants
Hector -- could be really cool, depends on your last name
Theodore -- like
William -- a classic
Cyril -- don't like this one as well
Leopold -- how do you feel about Lionel or Leonidas? Like both of those a little better.
Wilfred -- my least favorite on the list
Freddie -- as a nn for Frederick? Love Frederick!!!!
ETA I don't think your list is too short. You've got some great choices on there already!

I like your list a lot! I would just get rid of Freddie because you already have Wilfred for which Freddie could be a nickname. The rest of your names are all more formal than Freddie.
I love Arthur, Hector, Cyril, Leopold, and Wilfred. And Theodore and William. So that's all of them except for Maximilian. I love Max but this version feels a bit hoighty-toighty to me....

Arthur - I really love Arthur just makes me happy
Theodore - very nice, great name
William - love it, great classic
Cyril - not my favorite I admit, I like Basil and Cyrus but Cyril sounds too much like cereal for me
Leopold - feels a bit pretentious to me though I do like it.
Wilfred - I love Wil so I think it's usable, but it's not really my favorite, but if you like Freddie as well I can see it being a nice option
Maximilian - I've never been a big fan of this one, it's by no means terrible, just not my style
Hector - really don't like this one, all I hear is heck! I'd prefer Rupert, Edgar, HubertTop Names: Benedict Zeal & Noelle Geneva
