I am not sure if this would hep you in any way..  I came up with Sean Michael.. Its ute.. but not sure
Try this's my favorite: can use your last name and the baby's gender and it will create both first and middle names that sound good with it. I did your last name and it came up with...David AidenCole QuinnNoah Quinnand more and more, I think it generates 100 possible names.  :)
Focus on a theme, i.e, family, religion, a favorite subject in school (did you love studying the presidents? Or science, some famous scientists) How about a child hood hero (I'm not talking Clark Kent, More along the lines of a favorite teacher, grandparent, a beloved friend or family member who died, or perhaps not died? An inspiring Author, or the person who gave you a start in a favorit job).Names should be strong and have some type of history or meaning. A name defines who you are when you are introduced, You are either respected, considered silly or a big joke, unique, powerful. A lot can be said just in the introduction, the saying of the name. Give it a thought and give your son a legacy he will be proud to carry with him.
I want something thats been heard of, but not too common... I was thinking of Ryleigh layne, but people have been telling me that its spelled too much like a girls name... i've also thought of sebastian, landon, and noah, but i still have no clue what im going to name him.... i just dont want to go into labor with him without a few names picked out... i was thinking of maybe settling on three of them if i cant settle on just one..
I love the older names. I think that they are strong and powerful.  People have heard of them but they aren't as common anymore.  I have a son named George and everyone kept telling me that he would get picked on but hsi name seems to fit him and he hasn't been picked on at all for it.  These days parents are giving kids some really crazy names so to go back to the classics isn't odd.
My 2nd son is named Riley Scott.  There's a little girl down the street and another little girl in his class both name Ryleigh.  I agree that the Leigh gives it a girl connotation.  And Layne reminds me of Layne from Gilmore Girls so I think the Y makes it girly.  Riley Lane is very boy to me!  You still get your name, just the more traditional spelling.  I love Landon and Noah - both great names, not too common, but definitely heard of.  Fletcher would also be super cute with Gallagher.Noah Fletcher Gallagher  :)
What about Mason, Evan, Aiden, Caleb, Wyatt and Liam?
I love Ryleigh its looks cute and is cute buts very popular. && landon is supper cute thats what my mom wants me to name my baby
