    3.Flynn
    4.Arthur
    5.Raphael
    6.Wells

    Hale might work well for a boy.

    A couple of suggestions:
    Ronan ("little seal")
    Dylan ("son of the sea")
    Felix ("fortunate")

    I'm sure once you meet the little guy you will know what the right name is!

    Good luck!

    I really like seanic21's suggestion of Dylan. I do agree that Hali sounds a little feminine but I definitely believe it could be used as a middle name. Good luck!

    It's unfortunate your husband isn't on board with Theodore, such an awesome name. What about Thaddeus or Thelonius or Theodus? Theo is okay, but it feels incomplete to me.
    I agree that Hali seems very feminine, and though it does have several levels of significance, I think it might be hard for a boy to carry. Maybe a MN?
    You both seem to be on board with Wells, not my personal choice, but seems like an okay 'just-in-case' option.
    Flynn is another name I really like, unfortunate your husband doesn't. What about some of the Finn related names (Finian, Phineas, Finlay, Finnigan, Fintan, etc)?
    Hearst I'm not a fan of, sounds like 'hearse'
    Ethan would be a great name, I just don't like how crazily common it's become (#7 in the US).
    Arthur is a solid option, ancient, historic, cool NN (Art).
    Raphael is also another solid option, ancient, historic.

    It's a little hard for me to figure out exactly what suggestions for other names based on the list you've made, but here's a few:

    Thaddeus
    Thelonius
    Theodus
    Theodorus
    Finlay
    Phineas
    Fintan
    Finian
    Finnigan
    Leonidas
    Leo
    Lionel
    Darnell
    Stellan
    Callum
    Ellery
    Ellis
    Elliott
    Malcolm
    Heron
    Asa

    Some other suggestions:
    --Halifax was named after George Montague-Dunk, 2nd Earl of Halifax, so you could use George or Montague.
    --Edward, after Edward Cornwallis, founder of Halifax
    --Brendan (apparently Brendan the Navigator is the patron saint of mariners)
    --Hale or Hayle (instead of Hali)
    --Kai (means "sea" on Hawaiian)
    --Barrett (Just throwing this out there. In university we used to sing the song "Barrett's privateers" a lot, which ends up with the narrator "on a Halifax pier")
    Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Marilla ~ Sarah
    Paul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel
