I would totally go with the more formal name of Susan (or Susanna) and call her Suza as a nickname. People will assume Suza is a nn and she is bound to be asked about it a lot. I can't help but think having a more formal name to fall back on would be appreciated. I happen to really love the names Susan and Susanna(h). From your list of other considerations, I like Petra.Mother of three teenagers: (1) Daniel Glen, (2) Timothy Austin, and (3) Rebecca Jane... all middle names honor family... 3rd generation mn Jane. (A second girl would have been Susanna Eve and a third boy, maybe Isaac...)

If I met a kid named Suza, I would assume her parents were big into marching bands. I think that you and your husband are so far apart stylistically, that you're going to have to come up with a compromise. I think your best option, as others have said, is to come up with a traditional name that satisfies him with a quirky nn that you like.
Susan/Susannah- nn Sosie, Zanna, Zuzu
Beatrice/Beatrix- nn Trixie, Betsy, Bixie
Elizabeth- nn Libby, Zibby
Catherine- nn KitTrying, trying, trying
