Do They vs. Sound Silly?

Hey everyone! We are going to be welcoming two little boys into our family but we’re having some concerns about their names. Our first is about their first names, we love the names Nolan, Mason, Ethan, and Gavin but we don’t think any of them flow with our last name, Sagan. Do you think any of them flow or should we completely start over? Our second concern is about their middle names, we are using my father’s name as one of their middle names for sure but we are running into some problems with a middle name for our other little one. My husband and I had planned on using his father’s name (it is also my husband’s middle name) however his mother and step-father think we should use his step-father’s name as he has been in his life for a long time. We don’t want to cause issues with our family, should we consider using two middle names for both boys? Or just drop honoring family members in their names? Sorry about the lengthy post but thank you for your comments! ~Shannon

We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
