I don't want to throw cold water, but is Reilly pronounced "really" or "riley"? The spelling causes me to read it "really." Thus, whenever I say the name out loud to myself with any of the other great middle name suggestions, I hear, "Oh, And Everett Really," or "Oh, and Theodore really," and end up hoping your 2-syllable last name is not a word of some sort that finishes off the sentence.
If the name is supposed to be pronounced Riley then I would suggest another spelling if that's possible. Otherwise, since you're planning on two middles, why not go back to Ryan? I totally agree that Owen Ryan can be redundant, but for example Owen Dominic Ryan sounds fine to me.
Sorry to be a killjoy here. Hope you find a great name that you love!
