If I had to rate your list from best to worst....
1.Theo (although I like Theodore better)
EDIT : Hopefully when your husband sees these responses, he will change his mind on some of those that he doesn't have much feelings for.
Otherwise, I would suggest

Hale might work well for a boy.Mama of two beautiful boys!
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.

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:

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 ~ Veronica ~ Sarah ~ EstherPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel
Top combos: Miriam Estelle / Paul Augustin
