First time post, boy name combos!
Hi fellow berries!! I've been following Nameberry for a while now and I've been commenting on other threads but this is my first own post! It took me a while how to figure out how to make a thread. I was just doing it wrong. (Hope that isn't just me!) Anyway, I'm actually not going to be naming any kids for a while; I'm just another name-obsessed teenager.
For my first post i decided to ask for opinions and ideas on boy's names. I have a list of my favorite names and I want to see the best combo's you can make from these:
*All suggestions are welcome!

Mason - one of the hottest names on the country right now. I guess it's okay, it just seems overdone to me. I guess it has the appealing sound of Jason, Grayson, etc., but still a bit distinctive of its own. I used to really love it when I first heard it, though.
Finn/Finley - I quite love Finley, actually. I love that it means "fair-haired warrior". My brother's fair-haired, and he's in the Air Force... so it is quite meaningful to me, haha. I'd use it for him. I do like other Finn names more, though (particularly Flynn, Finnegan, and Phineas).
James - a timeless classic. You can't go wrong with James, even though it's not a personal favorite. I do respect those who do use it, though!
Palin - I think this would be quite risky, with Sarah Palin and all. I like Peyton much more on a boy.
Noah - love it. It's long been a favorite of mine. Due to its popularity, I'm starting to prefer it as a MN, but I really do adore it, and would love to use it one day.
Jacob - I've been scared off by its popularity, and the nn of Jake (which I really can't stand!) but I love hearing Jacob and I imagine just the most gentlemanly, artistic guy with the name. Probably because of a character I created for a novel once.
Bennett - I like it a lot, but I prefer Beckett and Benedict, personally.
Arthur - I respect it, but I don't love it. I'm not sure I'd ever use it... if I did, I'd use it as a MN.
Henley - It's intriguing, but sorry, all I can think of is 1, hens, and 2, the band Hedley. I don't think I could use it, sorry.
Oliver - LOVE it! If Olivia wasn't on my top 3 for girls, I would seriously consider Oliver. I love it a lot. I also love Oscar, probably even more than Oliver, and I think Oscar's a bit more distinctive. Then again, it has more off-putting associations (Oscar Meyer wieners, Oscar the Grouch, etc.)--but then again, it has great namesakes imo, too (Oscar Wilde; Oskar Schindler).
Jonah - I like it a lot, but I'd probably use Jonas first. I looove Jonas!
Jonah, Oliver, and Noah are my favorites! I think Jonah Arthur, Noah Arthur, Oliver Jonah/Jonah Oliver, Bennett Oliver, Noah Bennett, and Jonah Bennett would all be great.

Here are some combos that I like from your list:
Oliver James -- Classic and quirky first name with a strong, classic middle
Henley Jacob -- Idk if I'd use Henley even though it sounds cool, but I still like this combo
Bennett Oliver -- It's tough to find good middles for Bennett, but I think this works. This combo reminds me of British lit, which to me is a positive association.
Noah Finn -- I think this sounds cool

Great feedback Berries! Thanks! I like all the combo's! And ashthedreamer I see what you mean about Arthur and Palin. Palin I just thought was a sweet name but it would probably only be a mn. Arthur is not my favorite from first glance but it has personal significance and again it probably still be used as a mn.
