I really like both Galen and Gale, but I slightly prefer Gale as a full name. I think that Gael Garcia Bernal helps to make Gale wearable for a boy, and It's really unlikely that there will be a female Gayle or a Gail or a Gale in his class. Gayle has been out of the top 1000 since 1982, Gale since 1970, and Gail since 1985. There were 6 girls named Gayle in all of the U.S. in 2010 and 15 named Gail. In comparison, 688 boys were named Gael.
Statistics from here: http://www.nancy.cc/
And the stuff about the top 1000 is from Behind the Name.

I don't think Gale is fair for a boy, I know a lot of girls called Gail or Gayle (your son may like to live outside the US one day!?) and Gael is pronounced HY-el so not comparable. Galen is very nice though and I also like the suggestions of Anakin (I can't see what the teasing would be for?) and Stellan is a favourite of mine but can't use it.
