Declan is a great name, but others have also noticed its appeal and it does seem to be one of those trendy names. I don't think it would feel as common as Aiden, though, as Declan has a single spelling and doesn't have a lot of rhyming partners (like Caiden/Braeden/etc.). I still say use it if you love it, but use it knowing you may meet other little Declans and it won't be perceived as an original choice. Nora, while classic, is also enjoying refreshed popularity right now, so if you're happy with your choice there, you may not be too disappointed by Declan.
I like Jameson as a son for James, and I totally get the flow thing. My husband is Jacob and I have considered using Jacobson as a middle where flow is an issue. I prefer James if it works with a fn, but if not, go for Jameson!
Your daughter's name is gorgeous, btw, and Nora and Declan would sound fantastic together!
(Declan Jameson sounds wonderful, if you're considering the pairing.)
