You should be proud of your husband. He has a better taste than most!
From least fav to most:
McKenzie: Tom me this should stay in the surname category.
Kallie- Not my style at all. Also reminds me of Cali- as in the state of CA.
Trinity- Would be an awesome name for someone trying to connect it to their religion. If not, I just don't like the heavy t grounded sound.
Willow- Never liked this name. I don't see the appeal in it that everyone else clearly sees.
Haley- Way too popular.
Hazel- I used to love this name, but I have tossed it awhile back ago.
Madison- Becoming popular. Starting to become sick of it.
Lily- My english teacher in highschool named her daughter this. It did not fit her at all. To me, this name only suits elderly women.
Bella- Okay, enough with my negative thoughts. I love Bella. It's not overused like Isabelle/ Isabella. It's sweet and pretty. You can also go with Belle.
Zoe- Knew a Zoe, and she was gothic :0 but irregardless, I still think it is a nice name.
Kara- Sweet, simple and cute.
Summer- Very pretty. Makes me think of bright sunny days. I picture a kind, giggle-y child with blonde hair.
Kendra- Had a friend name Kendra. She was the smartest person in her grade when she graduated. She certainly has a great future ahead of her. If names do fit their stereotypes, and if you want a smart child, maybe pick this one?!
Addison- Unlike most people on this site, I love the nickname Addie.
Kylee- Very pretty. I prefer the Kylie spelling. Kylee seems more masculine to me.
Laney- SO pretty. I picture nothing but elogance.

Addison--Too trendy, don't like it
Bella--Remind him about Twilight and see if he likes it more or less.
Haley--I don't think it has any substance...I prefer a name with substance that can be shortened with nicknames
Hazel--Really like it. Old-fashioned yet fashionable.
Kara--It's kind of sweet, but there are so many other names out there I like better!
Kallie--Prefer Callie. See Haley.
Kylee--Too cutsey/trendy. Remember whatever name you give, she's stuck with that as an adult as well!
Lilly--Ok here is an -y/-ie/-ee ending that actually has some substance. This is workable.
Summer--This is sweet.
Trinity--Kinda cool, but a lot edgier than the other names on this list...
Willow--I like this name, romantic and sweet.
So it seems he likes cutsey-sounding names with attitude, or sweet light names (Summer, Willow). Out of the -y/-ie/-ee names, my favorite is Callie followed by Laney. I don't count Lilly in that list, because IMO Lilly is a "legitimate" name, a full name in its own right. My overall favorites are Hazel, Lilly, and Willow.

Addison - Prefer this on a boy personally.
Bella - Over it.
Haley - Love! But I prefer Hailey just slightly.
Hazel - LOVE!
Kara - It's ok.
Kallie - Maybe as a nn but Kallie or Callie (prefer this spelling) reminds me of a dog's name on its own.
Kendra - I really like this name! But if it bothers you there is that Playboy bunny named Kendra, and I feel that's who people will think of.
Kylee - Meh.
Laney - It's ok.
Lilly - NMS.
Mckenzie - Kinda over the "mc" names.
Madison - Meh.
Summer - Not bad.
Trinity - NMS at all.
Willow - NMS but nice.
Zoe - Love!Top 10 girl's names: Serena * Audrey * Sienna * Bridget * Lucy * Hazel * Cordelia * Josephine * Claire * Alice
Top 10 boy's names: Elliott * Callum * Theodore * Emmett * Nolan * Ian * Blake * Brennan * Adrian * Everett

Seems like he picked a lot of nicknames.
Maybe you can convince him to like the longer version of one of these and use his choice as a nn.
Zoe - I like
Willow - pretty and simple, not a bad choice
Kara - Karina, Katrina, Karolina (or their C versions)
Kallie - Kalliope, Kalista, Kalanthia (or their C versions)
Trinity - different, you could use Triny as a nn
Laney - Alana, Elana, (or their longer versions Allannah), Delaney, Elanor, Flannery
Lilly - pretty as it is though very simple. Lilith, Elizabeth, Delilah, Lillianna, Lorelai,
Kylee - Skyler?
Madison - this one is okay, I prefer Madeline
Kendra - meh, okay, has that 'made up' feel to me
Summer - bleh, really dated in my mind
Hazel - I know a lot of people love this, but it still feels old-lady to me. middle name?
Haley - meh, kinda feels a bit dated, I think most Haley's are in their teens now. Michala/Thalia/Nathalia?
Bella - I don't mind it as a middle or a nn to Isabella/Anabella/Arabella/Claribel/Meribel/etc.
Addison - I prefer Adele, Adelaide, Adelyn
Mckenzie - sorry, I hate this name

Well the good news is that is seems you both like Hazel which seems like a great place to start. There are a few on his list that are on mine as well such as Addison (despite GA & PP), Mackenzie, Kara and Zoe.
I don't really feel that me rating all of his choices will help out much since favoritism in names is such a personal thing - however, I suggest asking him what in particular he likes about individual names. Maybe it's the meaning and you can suggest something that you like better that he might like the names listed above. Otherwise maybe for names like Bella you can find a longer version like Isabella, or Bellatrix that can be shortened to a nn he might like. You never know it might be the ending sound that drew him to the name or just the meaning. It will give you a starting point.
Also maybe if both of you lengthen your lists of likes to say your top 30 and then see which names might overlap you might find a name you both love. (I think I have a running list of 39 that I started 5 years ago. I leave everything on the list and underline my current favorites and keep notes about why I like them and what I am worried about.)

Addison - getting very popular, and I HATE the name Madison (so I'm not the best judge of that name)
Bella - Too popular, which is unfortunate. She'll end up in a classroom with 5 girls with the same name.
Haley - I love the name Haley. One of my best friend's name is Hayley. She's great.
Hazel - Not a fan. Old lady name.
Kara - Love it! Kara Thrace from Battlestar Galactica!
Kallie - Love it! Has some one been watching BSG?
Kendra - Cool. But there was a playboy bunny with this name.
Kylee - I agree with someone else's comment that Kylie is a better spelling and it's a little too Kardashian-esque.
Laney - Movie 'She's All That': Laney Boggs.
Lilly - Cute.
Mckenzie - Not a fan of the whole "Mc/Mac" thing.
Madison - As I said before, I hate this name with a burning passion. Always have.
Summer - Meh.
Trinity - Awesome!
Willow - Well, it was cool in Buffy.
Zoe - It's good. I prefer this proper spelling to 'Zoey'.
