I agree with you, your husband and his friends have clearly lost their minds and not thinking about how a person has to wear a name thats hard to spell and pronounce and is just plain made up.
You could meet him half way with a real name- Zion pronounced " Zy-on"
Whats bad about this name is its a made up word and spelling- it sort of breaks all of my name rules.

I definitely think Xynon should be scrapped in favor of a compromise name. He seems to like it because it sounds cool and because it's unique, so I think finding a unique name with similar sounds that you can both get on board with is a good place to start.
Seconding (thirding?) the suggestions of Zorion, Xander/Zander, and Zephyr.
Zion - are you religious/spiritual at all? this one has a very deep meaning in addition to being a cool place name
Zafar - egdy and exotic
Zahn - very sci-fi, as Timothy Zahn was the author of many Star Wars novels
Zenith - means the highest point, plus has the cool nickname Zen
Zephaniah - or the short version, Zephan, if he likes a sleeker vibe
Zane - another author name, this one does Wild West novels
Zebulon - Biblical name, also Zebulon Pike of Pike's Peak
Xanthos - another name for Apollo, the sun god
Xerxes - ancient Persian name meaning "hero of heroes"
Or if it's the edgy sci-fi feeling that he likes, what about:
Stark - from Farscape...and Iron Man!
Korben (or Corbin / Corban) - main character of the kookily awesome movie Fifth Element
Riddick - since you once liked Ryker. Vin Diesel, anyone?
Dash - smuggler in Star Wars, could also be a nickname for the increasingly popular Dashiell
Ender - from the Orson Scott Card series which will soon be a movie
Deckard - main character of Blade Runner
Cloud - Final Fantasy...you could also do Sephiroth if you're feeling brave! I think a little Seph would be strangely swoonworthy
Elric - Edward and Alphonse, from Full Metal Alchemist
Alistair - from the DragonAge video games. Not exactly sci-fi, but still "cool"
Lestat - again not exactly sci-fi, but pretty hardcore
Riku - from Kingdom Hearts. Also contains Axel and Ansem.
Dante - from Devil May Cry (and the Divine Comedy of course)
Arronax - Professor from a Jules Verne classic, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Also includes Nemo, the fabulously enigmatic captain
Vash - as in Vash the Stampede from Trigun
Azriel - Powerful, ambitious character in His Dark Materials who wants to re-engineer the Garden of Eden to prevent original sin
Roland - the gunslinger from Stephen King's infamous Dark Tower novels
Magnus - if husband is an X-Men fan, you can't go wrong with this nod to Magneto, whose full name is apparently Erik Magnus Lensherr. And while we're on the topic, Xavier could be a good option too.
Constantine - Although the historical reference is cool, this one is for the demon-hunter
Hope this helps somewhat! Let us know what you guys end up choosing! (And I have to admit, I'm praying it's not Xynon)Zion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____
Alice Willow ~ Ophelia Wren ~ Juliet Snow ~ Lucia Pearl ~ Eve Wisteria nn Evie ~ Cosima Rose ~ River Seraphine ~ Elowen Briar
Narnia Rose, Astoria nn Story, Illyria, Serafina, Soraya, Faerydae
Orion Melchior North, Tobias Loki, Edmund, Frost, Oberon, Kenshin, Remiel, Atreyu

Xynon is terrible. If I met a Xynon, I would be seriously judging his parents. I'm not really a fan of any of the names on your list, but they're all wayyy better than Xynon (save Xevon..)
Maybe try Xavier?not expecting, just collecting.
