Oh I love masculine names for girls, in fact several on my list are straight-up "boys" names...not even listed on NB as unisex!
My favorites from your list:
Madden Harvest - I don't like Madden at all, but Harvest is sweet. What about Magdalen, Madigan, Morgan, Maren?
Shiloh - I like Shiloh a lot, and I don't think it *needs* a NN, although I do like Low for a girl. How about Harlow?
Mabel - I really like Mabel, it's on my "short list"
Some more names to consider: Adair, Auden, Lennox, Kindred, Ammi, Silas, Ellery, Sibel, Noa,

is Madden the same as Maiden? or Mad-den? I'm not loving it. Maiden is kind of cute though. But not with Harvest.
Presely- Kind of a difficult name to say and kind of nicknamey sounding.
Shiloh is pretty cute. She could go by Shya, Shyla, Lilo, or Lo
Layla Is cute. It reminds me of the nature girl on Sky High which I love
Etta. I saw the CUTEST baby Etta on a tv show once upon a time. It was her real name. I'm not sure it ages well though. Josephine is nice and also has a lot of nick name potential including the manlier Jo which seems like your style. JoJo is cute too!
Finley I think i just don't really like ley names because this one seems awkward to me too.
Jolie, i agree with your reasoning for not using it. No reason to use a family members name especially if you have doubts about it.
I prefer Maple to Mabel, but I find it interesting that he suggested this one. That kind of gives you some what of a direction.
Mabel and Harvest both seem naturey to me. Maybe you could find something on some nature inspired list that would get both your name juices flowing?Wanting to be pregnant.

From your list, I really like Etta Josephine. A pp said she's not sure it ages well... but Etta makes me think of the 6 time Grammy award winning singer: Etta James... your daughter would be in good company!
Madden: did you know it means "little dog", according to NameBerry? If kids find out the meaning of her name at school, they would tease her unmercifully I think.
Names I like that aren't too common but still stylish:
Adelaide: meaning "noble"
Arabelle: Nameberry only has Arabella on the website, but Arabelle is just the French version -at least I just met a young woman from France with this name.
Kathryn: this spelling is not as popular as Catherine or Katherine and is far prettier in my opinion
Gwen/Gwendolyn: so pretty and so underused
Guinevere: I live in a French speaking area so I know a lot of Genevieves... but I really like the English version.
Merida: ok, so this one might become super popular now due to the recent movie, but it's spunky
Good luck with your choices. As for your DH... he might just not be ready to think about names. I'm at 28 weeks and we've got a name picked out, but there are other things I need to talk to my DH about and he just keeps putting things off -he says he'll figure it out when the time comes (I hope that he will not wait until the last minute -like on the way to the hospital!) lol

Madden Harvest - Madden is sort of cute, but I strongly associate it with the Madden NFL games, and I'm not really one for football or for video games. I don't really "get" Harvest. Does it have significance for you?
Presley - Presley Marie is VERY Lisa Marie Presley to me. I think that it's too loaded as a combo, unless you're specifically trying to honor her for whatever reason. I'm neutral on Presley itself. I don't love it or hate it.
Shiloh - I love the sound of Shiloh but I think that it's very tied to the Jolie-Pitts. I expect that you'd probably hear a lot of "Oh, like Brad and Angelina's kid?" when you introduced her, so if you think that would bother you I might scrap it. I wish that wasn't the case, though.
Layla Marie or Harvest - It's okay. I'm pretty neutral on this one as well.
Etta Josephine or Marie - This is one of my favorites from your list. I really like both Etta Josephine and Etta Marie.
Finley Marie - I like this one.
Jolie Marie - I don't like the matchy endings - JolIE MarIE. This combo is too sing-songy for my tastes. I also think that Jolie again is rather tied to Angelina Jolie.
Mabel - Love Mabel! What about Mabey or Maybe as a nickname if you can't picture Mabel on a baby?
What do you think of Forest or Forrest on a girl? Too Gump? A lot of boys' nature names seem to cross over to the girls' territory (River comes to mind), and seeing Harvest on your list made me think of it.
Other suggestions ...
Everett (Everett nn Etta?)
Marlo / Marlow / Marlowe
Leela / Liela
Eloise (Another way to get the nickname "Lo".)
Kiernan (Maybe too matchy with Kameryn?)
Logan (I've sort of grown out of this one, but I loved this on a girl when I was younger. I thought it goes well with Kameryn, for whatever that's worth.)
Lou / Louise or Louisa "Lou"
I think I'll stop there. I know that those suggestions are all over the place! I wasn't quite sure which direction to go in, to be honest.
