    Jameson--- One of those names I wish I could use!
    Sebastian-- Cool name, just nms
    Samuel--- Strong, Classic. Can't go wrong.
    Xander--- I really like this.
    Liam--- Much to common now. I prefer this in the middle spot. It makes a great middle because it goes with a lot.
    Archer--- My future son's middle name so of course I love it.
    Carter--- Much too common.
    Walter--- Way too dated.
    Jacob--- WAY to common. Middle spot?
    Dominic--- Again, cool name, just nms.
    Finnegan--- This is growing on me.
    Barnaby--- Definitely my least favorite. I think of the big purple dinosaur.
    Paul--- Dated. Another possible middle?
    Henry--- Classic and handsome.
    Oliver--- One of my favorites.
    Overall, I love your taste in names!

    Jameson - Love. I see below that you'd use "Jem" as a nickname, which just makes me love it even more.
    Sebastian - I still adore this name, even though it has a really negative character connection for me
    Samuel - Not a fan, but there's nothing wrong with it
    Xander - Prefer Alexander. Names that start with X just look off to me. But Alexander is one of my favorites
    Liam - Adore.
    Archer - I don't like it. It just brings up the nickname Archie and that's just...gross to me
    Carter - I like it.
    Walter - Too dated. The only Walter I've ever known was my grandfather, who would be in his nineties today. It's one of the names that will always read old to me
    Jacob - Cute. This is one that's definitely a little overdone (always).
    Dominic - Another of my favorites. Love the NN Dom and Nick.
    Finnegan - Aw it's cute.
    Barnaby - Hate. Just irrationally hate.
    Paul - It's perfectly fine. A little blah.
    Henry - LOVE. I swoon so hard over this name, which is funny because it is definitely an "old man" name.
    Oliver - LOVE

    Possible Combos:
    Jameson Elijah nn Jem - Love
    Walter Sebastian - The combination is nice, but I still do not favor Walter
    Samuel George - This is cute. I feel like this would be a a sixteenth century poet or something.
    Xander Nathaniel - Don't like it. Nathaniel is so classic and strong and Xander is just...trendy and unfinished. Alexander Nathaniel would be nice. Nathaniel Alexander is even better.
    Archer Cohen - Cute. I still don't like Archer, but it's not atrocious.
    Carter James - Cute
    Jacob Mason - This is way too common, even for me.
    Dominic Wolf - Very cute!
    Finnegan Peter - Hate Peter. The sound and the look of Peter makes me gag.
    Barnaby Paul - Nope. Again my my irrational hatred for the name Barnaby
    Paul Tristan - Tristan Paul. I prefer Paul in the middle spot. It just seems very clipped for a first name.
    Henry Alton - LOVE LOVE.

    Jameson: Like, nice name, not my favorite, but spin on a classic that works.
    Sebastian: Love! Great name.
    Samuel: Love! Classic, strong, friendly.
    Xander: NMS. Would like it more if Alexander was the full name and Xander was a nn.
    Liam: Don't care for. It's just kind of dull to me.
    Archer: Cute. Love the nn Archie.
    Carter: It's ok. I have a friend with a son named Carter and it wears it well.
    Walter: I've really been warming up to Walter lately. I think it's ready for its revival!
    Jacob: Nice name but way too popular for a first, I think. (This coming from someone who used a name in the Top 30...but top 10 and especially top 5 are just EVERYWHERE).
    Dominic: Don't like this. Can't really say why.
    Finnegan: Like it a lot. Finn is such a great nn.
    Barnaby: So fresh and fun! It's so fun to say! I like "Barnes" as a nn.
    Paul: Sturdy, classic, great associations. I'm not crazy about it, but it's undeniably a respectable name.
    Henry: Hits the sweet spot between manly and gentle. I like it.
    Oliver: Adore! Would use if my DH didn't hate it.

    I like these combos, with * denoting my favorites.
    Jameson Elijah nn Jem
    Walter Sebastian*
    Samuel George
    Archer Cohen (I like Archer Nathaniel better)
    Finnegan Peter*
    Barnaby Paul*
    Henry Alton
    Oliver Graham*

    Walter Sebastian is my overall favorite!

    Marshmallow: Thank you! I love your taste in names as well.

    Stlmama: Thanks for the input! Archer Nathaniel nn Archie is adorable. I also like the idea of Alexander nn Xander. Barnes is a nice nickname for Barnaby.
