Reilly for a boy?
I am going to have my little man any day now! I think Reilly is the name I will stick with as his first name. But now I am struggling with choosing a middle name. My boyfriend likes the middle names Jackson and Joel. However, I REFUSE to allow my son to be nick named RJ. I HATE RJ. So, I am in search of a fitting middle name that goes with Reilly. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I agree with bonnielyn, there's no reason that he would have to end up being called RJ. It would be different if you wanted to name him Alexander and absolutely hated the nn Alex, but RJ is a much more subtle potential nickname. As long as you started out with a different nn/no nn, I think it would be fine.

I'm going to agree with the other posters and say that RJ will not be an option unless you make it one.
You picked the first name, let him have the middle name.
Only person I know called AJ has a double barrelled first name Amelia-Jane and each name was one the parents liked and they called her AJ as a compromise.I like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.
